Contracting Capabilities

Our approach to wages and salaries

We pride ourselves on offering competitive remuneration packages and at Northpower great performance is acknowledged and recognised, in addition to offering market competitive pay and our staff receive purchasing discounts with several New Zealand retailers.


Competitive packages 

We believe in paying people aligned to the market competitive rates.

Our remuneration is externally benchmarked to ensure we’re paying rates relative to the market and salaries are reviewed every year.

We pay a living wage  

At Northpower we value our people and their contribution.

We are committed to ensuring sustainable futures, and we are working towards being a living wage employer.

A living wage in New Zealand is currently $26 per hour.

Pay equity  

We celebrate the richness that the diversity in thoughts, beliefs and approaches across our people and teams brings to our business.

We are progressing gender equality in our business, and we provide the same rewards, opportunities and resources to our people, regardless of their gender.

Our approach to 90-day trials 

The 90-day trial period is a contracted agreement that can be used by employers to assess the suitability of an employee for a role, meaning that the employer can dismiss a new employee within an initial 90-day window, without any risk.

At Northpower we have comprehensive and robust recruitment and selection processes in place and our in-house team do a great job of selecting candidates that are a good fit for the team, so we do not include a 90-day trial period clause in our employment agreements.
