How to Apply
We prefer online applications where possible as we have an online Career Centre that enables you to register and apply for any current vacancy that you're interested in, or you can just register your interest in working with Hamilton City Council in the future.
If you don't have access to a computer, internet access is available at Hamilton City Libraries. We also have printed application forms available at Human Resources reception, for those who aren't able to apply online (located on the 1st floor of the Hamilton City Council building in Garden Place).
Register with us
A variety of file types for your CV can be handled - pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf, .txt, but the file size is limited to 2MB.
By registering, you will set up your own personal account with us, including a unique logon and password that allows you to update your information at any time. You will be asked for your contact details and to load your CV. You will also be asked to answer a few personal questions that are important for working with us (such as your legal right to work in New Zealand).
Applying for a position
You only need to register once.
Once you have registered, you can apply for the role you are interested in by simply clicking on the vacancy listed – it only takes a few minutes to answer a few questions and to write a cover letter and submit your application.
On completion of your registration and application you will receive a confirmation email from our Career Centre.
Job Alerts can be set up for the areas that you are interested in. So, once you're registered simply log in and tick the areas that interest you and we'll send you an email advising when new vacancies arise. You'll be one of the first people to know we've got a vacancy and you won't have to wait to see it on a job board or in the news paper.
Updating your details
You can update any of the information you have submitted, by simply logging back into our Career Centre and updating as needed.

If your account is inactive for more than 12 months, you will be sent an email advising that your account will be removed due to inactivity. If you wish to remain active, all you need to do is enter into your account and refresh your data.
