Where you will be working

New Zealand Aluminium Smelters Limited (NZAS) is Rio Tinto’s only New Zealand site. We are pioneers in producing low carbon, high purity aluminium essential to human progress.

Based at Tiwai Point in New Zealand’s south, NZAS makes aluminium with one of the lowest carbon footprints in the world, and it is the only aluminium smelter to produce ultra-high purity metal using renewable hydroelectricity. Receiving the majority of its alumina from our Yarwun and Queensland Alumina Limited refineries in Gladstone, Australia, the smelter produces more than 335,000 tonnes of aluminium each year.

In January 2021, NZAS reached a new electricity agreement which will extend operations to December 2024. By joining us now, we will set you up for the future. Work is already underway to reskill and retrain our people, with skills transferrable to other industries.

We pride ourselves on being a world leader in quality aluminium products, founded on our deep commitment to safety and operational excellence which we believe is created by the best people in the industry.
