Why advertise anywhere else when you can reach QUALITY planners through the New Zealand Planning Institute - list your vacancy with us TODAY!

Advertising with us means you specifically target qualified planners, we believe no one else will be able to offer you this kind of target audience. With over 2500 NZPI members receiving job alerts every week, this is a great place to advertise your vacancy!

With our service, you can reach planners of all levels throughout New Zealand and globally. Job alerts are distributed to our members along with news, events, and other items of interest even to those not actively searching for jobs; therefore, you may find your position is noticed by someone not actively searching for a planning job. In addition, anyone (including non-members) can view your job listings from the NZPI website.
