EAP is a free, confidential, independent and voluntary service giving you access to trained counsellors who you can talk to about anything that may be affecting your work and/or life.
KiwiSaver is a voluntary, long-term savings initiative to help set you up for your retirement. Most KiwiSaver members will build up their savings account through regular contributions from their pay.
To get your savings of to a good start, the Government will kick start your KiwiSaver account with a tax-free contribution of $1,000. Each year the Government will pay into your account a member tax credit (if you’re 18 or over) and a fee subsidy. You may also be eligible for help with your mortgage.
There are three unions: the Public Service Association (PSA), Taxpro and National Union of Public Employees (NUPE), who represent staff within Inland Revenue on matters relating to their employment.
We understand the pressures of balancing a busy work/home life and aim to provide a working environment that ensures you will have the ability to get some balance. While we expect a professional approach from you in regard to the management of your time off we will provide a level of flexibility in order to accommodate your personal requirements wherever possible.
Some of our sites run very active social clubs which you can join for a nominal fee. They run a wide variety of user pays functions throughout the year for both members, non members and in some cases their partners. Activities may include:
- quiz nights
- wine/beer tasting
- movie nights
- texas hold'em
