We might be biased but we think Nicholsons is an amazing place to work!

We believe that delivering outstanding service is born from having an amazing team culture. Our company culture fosters a ‘one team’ approach that means we all have each other’s backs. There are no egos at Nicholsons, with our team working together for the good of our clients.

Our office is located in central New Plymouth, with plenty of off-street parking, and just a short stroll to the city’s fabulous shops, cafes and Coastal Walkway.

With a long history in Taranaki and unsurpassed local knowledge, it’s fair to say we love our province and its people.
