Vector is New Zealand’s leading energy solutions company, with a diverse portfolio of businesses delivering energy and communication services to millions of homes and commercial customers across Australasia and the Pacific. We have customers across electricity, gas and fibre networks, LPG, smart meters, commercial solar and HRV. We are NZX listed and our majority shareholder is Entrust, which represents around 340,000 Auckland energy customers.

Vector’s vision is to create a new energy future and enable more reliable, affordable and cleaner energy for communities with customers at the heart of everything we do. Our people are at the core of delivering this. We have a diverse team of 1,300 people across 40 sites and 20 cities, united by our vision of a new energy future.

Our constant drive for innovation and improvement is what sets Vector apart, including our 2017 decision to be the first corporate business to become a Living Wage accredited employer in New Zealand. Being largely owned by our community influences us strongly to ‘do the right thing’ by both the customers we serve and the people we employ.
