Timezone was last seen in Wellington back in 2010 and the new Timezone Courtenay, which opened on 1st October, employs six to 10 new team members, each excited in joining the international Timezone team.

Timezone Courtenay’s new home is in the historic 60 Courtenay Place, the site of the former Wellington Gas Company, a late-Victorian building designed by prominent architect Thomas Turnbull in the late 1800s.
