We are looking for 1 friendly, easy going and reliable person to work on our font desk and helping out with cleaning and laundry from the 12th of October. You will be checking people in, taking phone bookings, helping guests with directions and things to do in Picton etc, you will also be required to do some light cleaning and laundry. We are across the road from the beach and foreshore, only one minutes walk to the main shopping area, bars and cafes and only minutes from some of the most beautiful views and walking tracks New Zealand has to offer. We can offer you accommodation in a 4 person staff dorm. You will also get free wifi, bikes to ride, free laundry, and anything else that we have to offer around the hostel.

You will work 3.5 hours per day 6 days a week with one off. We will pay you a weekly wage with your accommodation taken out, you are usually left with about $98 per week in the hand and can then also claim back the tax you have paid. This system replaces the old woofing and is now what is required by law.. We do need a committment of 4 weeks for this job, if it turns out well for everyone you may wish to stay longer. You must have a visa allowing you to work, an IRD # and a NZ bank account. Your English must be of a very high standard this is important and we will not make exceptions.

 PLEASE NOTE. This requireds you to live in. We would prefer someone who is mature and perhaps already been working for a couple of years. You do need to be social and able to motivate guests to see and do all Picton has to offer. If you are someone who locks themselves away in a room all day you will not fit in with what we want here. You must be willing to get out walk the tracks and have a look around our beautiful town. 

At this stage we only need one person, Please only apply if you can start on the 12th.

Looking forward to hearing from you
