About us

SKYCITY Entertainment Group

Did you know that SKYCITY Auckland is one of five businesses owned by SKYCITY Entertainment Group? Our other businesses are located in Adelaide, Darwin, Hamilton and Queenstown.

Across New Zealand and Australia, we own and operate a total of six casinos, three luxury hotels, over 50 restaurants and bars, two convention and event centres, and a range of great attractions including Auckland's iconic Sky Tower. And we're about to get even bigger with major developments underway in Auckland (the New Zealand International Convention Centre and an additional five-star hotel) and Adelaide (South Australia's first six-star hotel and new river-front restaurants).

SKYCITY Auckland

Spanning three central city blocks, our Auckland property is home to New Zealand's largest casino and convention centre, 20 bars and restaurants, two luxury hotels, public car parking facilities and the iconic Sky Tower.

We want all our employees to find their winning career and, with over 3,500 people working across more than 200 different job types, we think there's a career option for just about everyone.

With over 70 different cultures working under one roof, we're incredibly proud to have a diverse team, from different backgrounds, who reflect our range of customers. We celebrate this diversity and encourage everyone to be themselves when at work. One of the ways we signal our inclusive culture is our 'Rainbow Tick' certification, which recognises the safe and welcoming environment we create for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, takataapui, intersex and fa'afafine (LGBTTIF) community.

SKYCITY's mission, vision and values

Our mission is to thrill, excite and make everyone feel like a winner, and our vision is to deliver world class casino entertainment.

We achieve both our mission and our vision by living SKYCITY's five 'Let's Play' values. To inspire us all to put these values into play, we recognise and reward those people who get out there and show us how it’s done.

Giving back to the community

Since 1996, we've proudly distributed over NZ$46.4 million to more than 4,150 community groups and organisations, large and small, through our three Community Trusts in Auckland, Hamilton and Queenstown.

Established to provide funds for community and charitable purposes, the SKYCITY Community Trusts are one of the vehicles we use to ‘put something back’ into the local community.

The independent Trusts aim to help local and regional organisations carry out community assistance and development work, focusing on supporting families to thrive and communities to prosper.

Supporting and celebrating our team

SKYCITY Auckland has a range of programmes and initiatives that help ensure our team feel safe, engaged, recognised and rewarded in the work place.


We know that employees who are happy at home AND at work are much more likely to provide great experiences for our guests. So, for any employee experiencing difficulty in their professional or personal lives, our award-winning Connect team are there to help. Whether it's budgeting and careers advice, helping to resolve work place issues, or referrals to EAP or external agencies, our Employee Support Advisors provide free, impartial, confidential advice and support.

'Quest for the Best'

'Quest for the Best' is SKYCITY's reward and recognition programme designed to celebrate those employees who demonstrate our 'Let's Play' values by going beyond the call of duty to provide great outcomes for our customers and colleagues. Recipients are nominated by their peers or managers and we encourage family members to come along to our ceremonies to help us celebrate.

'Play Well'

'Play Well' is our wellness programme which takes a holistic approach to the well being of our people by covering physical, nutritional, mindful and social well-being. We run a series of fun events and initiatives year-round that cover things such as sports, cultural events, fundraising, health awareness and much more.

1.1 As part of our vision to create fun and entertainment and our mission to be the most popular entertainment and leisure destination in the cities in which we operate, SKYCITY recognises its responsibilities as a corporate citizen. This Code of Business Practice is intended to reinforce our commitment to the community, including our employees and shareholders. The Code sets out many of the business practices already followed by the SKYCITY Entertainment Group. It includes the standards of behaviour that the community can expect from us.

1.2 At all times we expect our directors, employees and contractors to practice high ethical standards in the performance of their duties, comply with all applicable laws and regulations, co-operate with regulatory bodies and government agencies, and use SKYCITY’s assets and resources only for the legitimate and ethical achievement of SKYCITY’s business objectives.

2. Purpose and Intent

The purpose and intent of this Code of Business Practice is to guide directors, employees, contractors and representatives of SKYCITY so that their business conduct is consistent with SKYCITY’s business standards, and to improve the understanding of our business standards by our customers, our staff, our shareholders and the communities in which we operate.

3. Business Practices

3.1 Compliance with Laws: We conduct our business in accordance with all applicable laws and legal requirements, and at all times comply with the terms of our casino premises and casino operator’s licences.

SKYCITY co-operates with regulatory bodies and government agencies in all matters, including their investigations of our compliance with our legal obligations.

The company co-operates at all times with Police and regulatory agencies in respect of illegal or criminal behaviour or activity and also in terms of undesirable or inappropriate behaviour or activity, including but not limited to loan sharking and money laundering. The company adopts a proactive approach and will move to exclude patrons associated with such activities. Some activities are noted as not necessarily illegal or unlawful but if deemed undesirable or inappropriate in the casino context, appropriate response and preventative actions will nevertheless be initiated on a timely basis.

3.2 Honesty and Fairness: We deal with all customers and employees in an open, honest and fair manner. We respond promptly to all customer or employee complaints or issues and co-operate with all relevant regulatory bodies in investigating any of those issues.

3.3 Human Rights: SKYCITY has adopted and follows policies and business practices that provide fair and equal opportunities to all employees and customers.

We have adopted and follow human resource policies that respect the rights and individual differences of all employees and customers. SKYCITY does not discriminate against any person on the basis of one of the prohibited grounds of discrimination set out in the Human Rights Act or any other legislation. We do not accept any form of harassment by, or of, employees or customers.

3.4 Health & Safety: We provide a safe environment in which our customers can enjoy themselves and our employees can carry out their responsibilities.

We make every effort to prevent disclosure of confidential information we receive from other people as part of our business.

Company employees must sign and be bound by a Confidentiality Agreement which contracts them, as a term of their employment with the company, to at all times protect the company’s commercial and confidential information and not to disclose commercially sensitive company information to external persons.

No director or employee with such non-public price-sensitive information may recommend or suggest other persons buy or sell our securities.

Directors and employees may not accept any commission or personal profit or rebate for any business arrangement involving SKYCITY.

3.11 Community Contributions: SKYCITY plays a positive role in the community by assisting and contributing to community organisations and community projects.

3.12 Problem Gambling: We do not endorse or encourage gambling by those who show signs of having a gambling problem.

SKYCITY's role as a responsible host

We recognise that alcohol and gambling can be associated with harm for some of our customers. We take our role as a responsible host seriously and have an important part to play in preventing and minimising alcohol and gambling-related harm for our customers.

SKYCITY's Host Responsibility Programme (HRP) plays an important role in achieving our vision, by helping to create a safe, enjoyable environment for all customers. The HRP was developed in conjunction with international researchers, local problem gambling treatment services and has been approved by the Gambling Commission.

As mentioned, you'll receive an email from our Learning & Development team asking you to complete an online compliance module relating to our HRP. Please complete this module before you start work with us.

As an employee, you are not allowed to gamble at any SKYCITY venue in New Zealand or Australia. Within your first few days on the job, please read the Human Resources Policy 'Gambling Restrictions' which is available on the SKYCITY Intranet. If you're unclear of your Host Responsibility obligations, please speak with your manager, or a member of the Connect, Employee Relations or Host Responsibility teams.

That's all for now...

We'll be in touch again soon with more information to get you prepared for your first few days with us.
