Working here

We've come a long way since the doors of the first Woolworths store opened in Wellington in 1929.

More than 2.7 million New Zealanders now walk through our doors every week. As one of the largest private sector employers in New Zealand... what is it that makes Countdown people special?

We're excited about our future - and we want you to be part of it.

For us, retailing is all about people. Woolworths Limited group employs more than 180,000 team members across Australia and New Zealand, and within New Zealand we are the largest retail employer with more than 18,500 employees.

We are proud of our people and are committed to helping every employee realise their potential. Each year we invest in training and education programmes to develop and grow our people to be great retailers and leaders.

Of course, working at Woolworths New Zealand is not just about working in supermarket stores. Our business is at the cutting edge of manufacturing, logistics and supply chain management, which is all supported by a reputable corporate division including construction, property management, legal, finance, HR, customer service, buying and marketing.
