Housing New Zealand has confirmed about 70 jobs will be axed from April next year, as it reshapes it services.

It has announced its final decisions on planned service delivery changes after consulting with and considering feedback from staff.

General Manager Tenancy Services Kay Read says the changes will modernise and improve services for tenants, as well as save more money.

She says Housing New Zealand anticipated the reduction in staff numbers nationwide, and has been employing temporary staff to mitigate the impact on permanent staff.

Ms Read says there will be opportunities for newly created roles or to be redeployed within the new structure.
