Kiwibank setting up major new office in Hastings

Kiwibank setting up major new office in Hastings

Kiwibank is establishing a new office in Hastings that will employ more than 100 staff and supplement core banking services provided in the Wellington head office.

Kiwibank Chief Executive Paul Brock said recent earthquakes, extreme weather events and the risks of events such as fire or gas leaks prompted a review of where and how Kiwibank provides its core services.

“We provide most transactional services in our Wellington head office with some services based in Auckland. However we are now establishing a strong regional office that can cover an event that affects the two main offices.

“Our main base will remain in Wellington where we employ more than 1000 staff. We plan to have the additional new office operational in Hastings by October,” Mr Brock said.

Mr Brock said a number of locations were considered for the new office and that Hastings provided the best fit with the bank’s requirements.

“The new office will ensure that there is a seamless continuity of business critical services, even if something has caused disruption at Auckland or Wellington” Mr Brock said.
