What we stand for

People matter

We treat others with dignity and respect. We care for each other, take time to listen, and value everyone’s contribution. We support our people to realise their potential. We take responsibility for our decisions and actions. We celebrate our achievements.

Our people

We're socially responsible

The only work we do is work to improve New Zealand's public sector. 

As well as making a difference to the organisations serving Aotearoa, we're also paying attention to the consequences of our work. We're monitoring our effect on the environment and actively reducing our travel, our waste, and our use of power.  

And we value our diversity.

Because we're acting in New Zealand's best interests, we value a workforce that represents all New Zealanders. We've got a rainbow network, a pasifika network, a women's network, a te ao Māori strategy, and a culture that puts people first.

Our locations

Audit New Zealand is a national practice. Our staff are based in offices in seven locations throughout New Zealand.
