If you have a nose for enterprise and a fatigue with corporate hierarchies, then Dunedin is for you.
When you understand the kind of vision that Dunedin’s founding fathers (and mothers) had for the City, it’s easy to see why Dunedin is a breeding ground for new business - Hallensteins, Fisher & Paykel, Nom*D and Carlson, NHNZ (Natural History New Zealand) and Taylormade Media Ltd. If you’d like to be your own boss – either running your own business or contracting to some seriously good Dunedin businesses – then get yourself to Dunedin. The business opportunities are great and the lifestyle isn’t too bad either.

There isn’t always an obvious path to getting ahead in your career, and not everyone thinks of spending time in Dunedin as a natural stepping stone. As a city, Dunedin boasts a world-class University and Medical School, access to leading R&D capabilities, a range of opportunities in local government and the not-for -profit sector and professional service firms with outstanding reputations (heard of Forsyth Barr?). Not only are there opportunities to get ahead in Dunedin, there are opportunities to fast-track your career (it’s such a highly networked place that you can make all sorts of things happen). Just one small warning though, you may never want to leave.
Dunedin's supportive environment, culture of innovation and creativity, and an unparalleled lifestyle provide a host of possibilities for career development and success. Looking for a job in Otago?
