- Working Holiday
We are able to help you plan your working holiday.
Our working holiday programme starts before you leave
your home country. We will will ensure that you obtain
the correct visas and have a good idea of what to
expect. On arrival we will assist with accommodation,
explain how to set up a bank account and obtain an
Inland Revenue tax number. From here we will help you
with your search for the right employment to suit your
What type of employment will you help me get?
Working holiday makers without specific skills
normally find employment in fruit picking, vine yards
and as cleaners in backpackers or elsewhere in the
tourism industry. NTIS New Zealand have contacts
locally and can often find better work than this - in
say retail, painting and decorating, tour guide
other more fulfilling work.
Working holiday makers with specific skills should
contact us about specific jobs. The New Zealand
Immigration service has a list of areas where there is
deemed to be a skill shortage. Skilled
employment is generally quite easy to find - do bear
in mind that New Zealand Immigration service
requirements for these positions to be open to
non-residents are that no suitably
skilled New Zealand residents are available.
