Office Work Environment
The office space in New Plymouth is large and comfortable with a variety of desk spaces suited to the way you like to work. There is plenty of parking across the grounds with commutes not taking long at all given the limited amount of traffic in the area. With a number of different eating areas be it inside or out on the deck there is plenty of spaces to eat and socialize. The dress code is semi formal with casual Fridays and shorts in summer.
