Summer Jobs in New Zealand with Kiwi and Kiwi | Smaller Earth UK




Our Summer jobs in New Zealand programme is perfect if you’re planning to travel to New Zealand between September - January. You’ll have access to our top employers, with flexible locations - so you can take full advantage of the New Zealand working holiday visa and begin your working holiday. Our summer employers are top hotels, with either 4 or 5 stars, in stunning locations.

You'll be guaranteed job interviews before you go. We also organise hiring fairs in the UK and fly our amazing Kiwi employers all the way from New Zealand, to meet you face to face on home turf. We believe in job security and not just giving access to a jobs board once you arrive. This isn't just a landing package.

The first week is all about getting you settled in and set up. From when you land you’ll be greeted with your airport transfer and we’ll bring you straight to the hostel.

We provide 3 nights arrival accommodation, with brekkie thrown in, so you can meet the gang, make new friends and enjoy your new Kiwi lifestyle.

We’ll be hosting an orientation just for you. So you can hit the ground running on day one. This is where we’ll set you up with expert accommodation seeking assistance; all the travel info you’ll ever need to explore and tax (IRD) application help.

We’ll pre-arrange a bank appointment. To make sure those hard earned pennies have a home, plus you’ll be getting a 2 degrees mobile sim card to keep you connected.

We’ll be offering unwavering support and guidance for your whole trip. From employment advice to travel excursions - we are the experts and absolutely love this little Island. Any advice or help you need, we will always be on hand.
