How is my privacy protected?

All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

How does the interview process work?

Interviews are an important part of the hiring process. Our interviews are interactive. We use structured behavioural type questions and will also give you the opportunity to ask us questions too.

In some instances you may need to attend a second interview. This will give both you and us an opportunity to learn more about each other.

What is psychometric testing?

For the majority of our external vacancies, the preferred candidate(s) are asked to complete a psychometric assessment as part of the selection process. We use two types of psychometric assessment tests; one focuses on your personality and the other on your abilities. We use a company called OPRA to do our testing.

Pre-employment drug testing

We put safety first at Transpower. In accordance with our drug and alcohol policy all applicants who are offered employment will be required to undertake a pre-employment drug test and a security clearance.

Information for overseas applications

If you are an international applicant and successful in your application, you will need to meet criteria specified by Immigration New Zealand.
