Do you see yourself in a global career?

Make a short one to two-minute video telling us how you would promote Ashburton District to the world. Then send in your application, and you could find yourself sharing and expanding Ashburton District's international connections and partnerships, as well as leading efforts to create an open and inclusive community.

Home to world-class agribusiness, food producers, manufacturers and tourism, Ashburton District is fast-growing, with support of international activity and networks. We welcome migrants, international students, we're a refugee resettlement location, and we love to celebrate our diverse, multicultural community.

So tell us: how can Ashburton District be more open and welcoming to the world?

And how can you help us get there?
