For the new Tait employee coming to work in Tait's Christchurch offices, we want to make getting to know Christchurch as easy for you as we can.
Christchurch is a city that lets you dictate the pace to suit your life - be it relaxing or action packed.
With a population of 380,000, the city offers a wide range of great attractions:
Christchurch's natural surroundings providing unspoilt playgrounds for a range of recreational activities. Just minutes from the city you can enjoy a round of golf on one of a number of quality courses, or sprawling beaches offer the perfect destination to relax in the sand or play amongst the waves.
The Port Hills are an ideal place to get close to nature. Towering on the outskirts of the city, the hills are a favourite among mountain bikers, walkers and those who appreciate the area's captivating scenery. A number of ski fields are also within easy reach by car across the Canterbury Plains.
Christchurch's climate is the envy of many, delivering the best to suit the season - balmy in summer and cool in winter - perfect for those alpine activities.
All levels of education are well catered for, with an excellent selection of educational facilities, including The University of Canterbury.

We offer summer internships, based at our Christchurch Head Office, to students from across New Zealand.
