The heart of any retail business are its people and the way they communicate with customers. We seek friendly staff that enjoy selling. Where possible we also seek those that have the skills of additional languages.

Aotea Gifts provides a structured career pathway in Tourism across various roles and locations.

As many of our staff have been from offshore locations, we recognise that the experience of living and working in New Zealand is unfamiliar to some. To maximise the outdoor “Kiwi” experiences that staff and their children can have, since 2018 we have supported swimming programs for staff to encourage this personal development and safety benefits.

We recognise that for many of our staff their working environment is their initial New Zealand family. As a family owned business we are mindful that these workplace interactions are important and must be based on Fun and Respect. Most importantly, the Aotea Whanau is based around the energy that our employees bring with them.
