Casual Staff Wanted @ Remote Wilderness Lodge

Payment: Paid Position ($17.70 plus holiday pay)
Location: Kinloch, Glenorchy
Region: Otago/Queenstown/Wanaka
Experience: Limited Experience Necessary
Contact: 0272177856
Listing Added: 11/07/2019

Two positions available - Casual staff wanted with accommodation available! Beautiful Wilderness Location.

At the moment we're looking for help with housekeeping and a kitchen hand at Kinloch Lodge. All positions are live-in positions at Kinloch. Read the info below and contact us! 

We offer a stunning wilderness location and great outdoor activities. Check our website to see what a stunning area we are in, remote yet only an hour from Queenstown. We're close to major tracks (Routeburn, Greenstone, Rees/Dart) and many day walks. There's lots to do in the area and you'll have access to our kayaks, bicycles, fishing rods and the hot tub. 

We are a family of five and we’re running a lodge with heritage rooms, backpacker rooms and family rooms. We have a historic heritage restaurant where we serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

What we're looking for:

Although we need help with a variety of tasks, the main tasks would consist of cleaning (toilets, kitchen, bathrooms, rooms etc.) and housekeeping (making over beds, assisting with laundry etc.). Therefore we are looking for enthusiastic people that are not afraid of hard work and are able to work independent. Other work may include kitchen work, odd jobs, some site maintenance, and occasionally help with FOH and kitchen tasks. We offer 2 hours per day of work minimum, but extra hours are available for the right people.
Sometimes we need help in our small, cute, but very busy cafe/giftshop with a B&B in the garden in Glenorchy.

Accommodation for our casual workers is either in shared 2 person bunk room, 2 share cabins/sleepouts or private cabin/sleepout for couples. This includes unlimited high speed wifi, free use of washer/dryer, a TV room with over 200 DVDs, unlimited kayak and bike use, and use of the hot tub! You will have use of the fully equipped self-catering guest kitchen to prepare your meals and John and Toni are happy to help you arrange groceries.

All people wanting to help exchange are contracted as casual staff and by law require a WORKING VISA or PERMIT and an IRD NUMBER. You will get paid for every hour worked at minimum wage + holiday pay and your accommodation cost is taken from wages ($33.73 a night). We are more keen to take on people wanting to stay for longer periods, especially in their mid twenties and early thirties, and require all our staff to speak English fluently.

We’ve built our business from the ground up and our heart is in our business. Therefore we are looking for people who have the right attitudes and good work ethic! Our company values are: Intelligence, Relevance, Thoughtfulness, Community, Environment and Fun. Can you identify yourself with our values? Do you like to be outdoors (i.e. hiking, kayaking, biking, photography etc.), are you a hardworking person and are you looking for a paid position for at least 3 weeks or more? Contact us via backpackerboard and tell us why you would love to work with us! We’re looking forward to meet you!
