It’s not only the work that defines a great company but also the people

We have a really strong culture and people often comment on our genuinely friendly and informal style. This, combined with a real passion for challenging the status quo, makes Squirrel an exciting place to work.

Squirrel is one of the most awarded mortgage brokers in NZ. We strongly believe in playing fair and doing right, by ourselves and our clients. We’re always looking for like-minded people so if this is you, get in touch by emailing

We’re passionate about developing our people

We are committed to professional development and our approach to training. We support our people to regularly participate in external industry training courses to ensure they are trained to the highest standards to perform their role, and maintain transferable skills and qualifications.

We provide our staff the opportunity to get whatever help they need to develop in the workplace and personally. We continue to invite world-class speakers and mentors to our regular 'Lunch and Learn' sessions to help develop our people - particularly during challenging times.

All Squirrels have access to confidential counselling services by EAP to provide practical assistance when personal or work issues arise that may impact on their ability to do their job or affect their wellbeing.

You don’t always need to make big gestures to make meaningful changes

Squirrel choose selective causes and charities to support throughout the year such as Shoebox Christmas and Jammies for June. We listen to our people and are happy to get behind causes they are passionate about.

We provide 2 Squirrel Days in addition to annual leave per year for our people to use for their own wellbeing, or that of others. 

We also provide life insurance, maternity leave and subsidised parking to help make things that little bit easier for our Squirrels.

We are committed to providing our own people and clients with an inclusive workplace and service. We recognise that we are not perfect. And we are up for as many uncomfortable chats as it takes. 

We believe in doing our bit

Whilst we’re not a big carbon producer, we believe in doing our bit to be green. We’ve come up with a set of core actions to reduce our carbon footprint. Our Sale St office is now solar powered and we have taken measures to eliminate as much waste as possible from our day to day operations.

Lots of Squirrels want to make a difference and our team is dedicated to maintaining our stance on this.

We also have a policy of refurbishing and recycling our used Macbooks and phones for staff to provide for their families.
