Seasons For Hire
Come have a NZ working holiday adventure and take your career to new levels with us.
New Zealand's busy summer season (November 2023 – April 2024) is a great time to work and explore with guests from all over the world.
You may be looking for a working holiday adventure in New Zealand for 6 months or maybe developing your hospitality career here in New Zealand with us. We have staff accommodation options available and can also accommodate couples or small groups if everyone has hospitality experience. Our seasonal teams are fun and made up of a diverse mix of people of all ages and nationalities.
The regions where our lodges are located - Northland, Hawke's Bay and Queenstown - are filled with some of New Zealand’s most recognised visitor icons and attractions, as well as lesser travelled roads that are equally worth a visit. Enjoy diverse and stunning scenery with magnificent views, native bush, suspension bridges, waterfalls, beautiful streams, lakes, stunning beaches, estuaries, harbours, boardwalks, disused train corridors and tunnels. In addition, experience our amazing vineyards and adventure sports and ski fields. No matter what the season, New Zealand offers visitors action-packed adventure and unparalleled scenery that will no doubt impress!
