Benefits

Competitive salary and Short Term Incentive (STI)

We make sure you’re fairly rewarded for your contribution to Contact. That’s why we regularly review all salaries to ensure we’re paying competitively and, most importantly, that you’re happy. In addition to your salary, most permanent employees are also eligible for an STI – a generous incentive that’s available each year.

KiwiSaver

We believe that it’s important to take care of tomorrow, today. So to help make your golden years shine a little brighter, we’ll make a 3% annual employer contribution to your KiwiSaver fund.

RedMed – health insurance

RedMed is our employee health insurance plan, which provides all eligible employees with the benefits of private medical cover, at no cost. Health and safety is our number one priority at Contact, and RedMed is one way we can help provide some peace of mind. Southern Cross Health Society is our partner for this benefit.

Staff discounts

As one of our team you can look forward to generous discounts on your Contact electricity, gas and LPG bills. We’ve also negotiated some great deals with leading retailers and suppliers throughout New Zealand for you to take advantage of. These include banking benefits, discounted rental car hire, computer software packages and plenty more.

Suggest the Best

We like it when friends look out for each other. So if you’re a permanent employee and you refer someone who also becomes a permanent employee at Contact, you’ll be financially rewarded for your efforts. It’s our way of saying ‘Thank you!’

Work-life

Sometimes – for any number of reasons – we realise you’ll need to be away from work. As well as the standard sick and bereavement leave entitlements, we’ll be as accommodating as we can because your wellbeing and life outside of work is important. This includes an opportunity each year to purchase additional leave. If it’s practical, we are also open to providing flexible arrangements such as working from home, or flexible working hours. And if it’s a career break or sabbatical you’re after, we’ll do all we can to support your aspirations.

Contact Share

Contact Share offers you the chance to own shares in Contact through our Employee Share Ownership Plan. Owning shares allows you to be further rewarded as a part of Contact's Success.

Learning and Development

To ensure your professional growth at Contact, we have a dedicated Organisational Capability team. They have access to a range of resources, programmes and opportunities that can be matched to suit your individual aspirations and interests. We also encourage employees to hold professional memberships and gain professional accreditation (such as ICANZ, IPENZ) which are fully subsidised.

Health, safety and environment

We take the health and all-round wellbeing of our team very seriously. So when you join us, you can look forward to a range of offerings such as free annual flu vaccinations, access to an onsite occupational Health Nurse, and an Employee Assistance programme – a company funded, completely confidential counselling service.

Car parking and bike storage

A number of our regional sites offer free or subsidised car parking and bicycle storage for employees.
