Recruitment Process

Submitting an application

All NZX vacancies are listed on Seek and Trade Me. Once you have applied for a role you will be taken to NZX’s online Talent Propeller platform where you will be asked to enter your contact details, qualifications, remuneration expectations, and whether you are able to work in New Zealand.

CV and covering letter

You will be required to submit an up-to-date CV and covering letter with your application form.


Interviews are a key step in NZX’s selection process and our positions generally have two rounds of interviews. We think of interviews as a two-way-street because they give you an opportunity to find out whether NZX is the right fit for you too.

Competency based interviews

For certain roles, applicants will be required to conduct a competency-based interview focusing on NZX’s values and the competencies aligned with them, plus any role-specific or technical skills, knowledge and experience.

Further assessment

For certain positions NZX may require you to complete an ability assessment or personality profiling. The testing is completed by an external organisation and in most cases can be done online.

Offer and final checks

NZX will contact you as soon as possible to advise whether you have been successful or not in your application. If you are successful a verbal offer is generally made in the first instance followed by a formal written offer. NZX's employment offers are conditional upon successful reference and criminal record checks being completed.
