Calling all Tradies!
Is your daily commute getting longer and you’re
spending less and less time with your family? Perhaps
you’re struggling to buy your first home or cover the
rent as house prices continue to climb? Maybe the fast
pace of life is wearing you down?
With a strong economy, low unemployment and a thriving business sector, the Taupō district is the perfect spot to grow your business and advance your career. It’s also a great place to achieve a balance of work and play. We’re located on the doorstep of nature’s ultimate playground. All that time you used to waste sitting in traffic could be spent biking, walking or taking a dip in the beautiful waters of Lake Taupō.
Maybe you're currently in business and looking to either expand into other areas, or you might be about to take the big step to start out on your own, or you might be nearing the end of your tradie career and looking for a different pace of life - regardless of your stage, we encourage you to take a closer look at relocating to the Taupo district.
One of the many perks of basing your business here is the lower operating costs. Leases are more affordable than big city prices and commercial properties can be quickly developed into purpose-built facilities for trades. We have plenty of workshops, lock and leave office spaces and yards available to buy or lease (check them out here).
As our community is growing and our economy is thriving, we need skilled trades in all sectors. Many of our tradies report six-months plus of client work booked up, and there are also plenty of job offers available if you're wanting to work for someone else rather than run your own business.
But of course, life is more than just work! Your family will love it here. Kilometres of walking and biking tracks surround the lake, and we have dozens of parks and reserves. Our fishing is world-class and winter skiing is just a short drive to the mountain.
Our house prices are affordable and the slower pace of life gives you time for the things that really matter.
How can we assist you to make the move?
Whether you're relocating your entire business to the district, expanding here or opening a new branch, or starting up from scratch - we can help!

One on One Support
We will connect you with a dedicated Business Advisor. (We have Advisors in Taupo, Turangi and Mangakino) They can help with any questions you may have about moving here, or just general advice with your business. They can help introduce you to the people in the know, help with validation questions and give you all that inside knowledge about our district!
We will invite you to a number of the best networking events in the district that would suit your business type,
introduce you to the movers and shakers and help build those initial relationships to get you established quickly.
