work with us

At Fantail & Turtle we value fair pay, team culture, world-class genuine hospitality and great food & drink.


We’re big, busy, fun, family owned & fiercely independent – so we serve only what our team are proud to, not what anyone tells us or pays us to.


Just 10 minutes from the city, loads of parking, and the northern expressway bus station on site – so transport is SUPER easy.


We’re a freehouse with 15 taps, have our own micro brewery, a hand picked wine list, possibly the best gin & tonic selection in NZ, bespoke cocktail list, hand pull for real ale, and we regularly visit our suppliers throughout NZ to connect, learn, and indulge.


We’re open 7 days and only getting busier, so have both full time and part time positions available. We’re open to both experienced hospitality professionals that can hit the ground running, and passionate fast learners – we’ll teach you from scratch if it’s the right fit!


We offer 4 day working weeks, great pay, free meals, reasonable closing times, 50% staff discounts, discounted gym memberships, monthly training sessions, an annual 2-night (staff-only) F&T Summer Festival (because plain old staff parties are so pre-covid), and ongoing professional development and growth opportunities.


We know that good service starts with looking after our people, so we prioritise nurturing and protecting our team culture, and we’re guided by our core values of manaakitanga and kaitiakitanga.


If this sounds like a bit of you please send your cv through, or pop in for a coffee and a chat!
