BADASS Couple As Live-In front desk staff required for Manor House Backpackers in Dunedin

We are currently seeking an awesome couple to come and man (or woman) the front desk, starting in mid to late January.

Right now we have a pretty awesome team. Including me and my lady. We're pretty rad too. We're looking for pretty much the same. Our MO is to work hard, and play way harder. This job is working for accomodation, which means you don't get a paycheck, but the work is fun, short and easy, meaning that you're also working for friends and good times. Not a bad deal. Right now we are watching all of the Star Wars movies in chronological order, engaging in several board game rivalries and we like to go out together and get our butts handed to us on trivia night.

You will have the responsibility for most aspects of the hostel in the early evening shifts. You will not be up late, as the shift offially ends at 9PM, but you will need to be “on call” to attend to any matters that may arise during the night. This rarely happens, in the last week I had to get up an hour early to bring someone the case of beer they left in the fridge.

The main benefit of this gig is that you get your own private room. So no more dorms! Combine this with the atmosphere, the perfect hours to get a separate job, and the wide array of work experience you can gain, and you can see the allure of this place.

Experience in admin, customer service or a similar role is preferred!

•          Accommodation in your own private room (it is QUIET, which is awesome).

•          FREE laundry facilities.

•          FREE and unlimited WIFI.

•          In addition to the above, you will get days off to go on trips. Free trips! Wooooo!

This live in staff position necessitates 24 hours per week for the couple, with one shared day off. This means that the two of you can seek jobs in town and switch with each other according to your schedules. We do have some leads about town for some jobs and are happy to provide direction in this regard. If a paid job is not necessary then this is ideal as you would only be working 12 hours per week.

*** We are looking for at least a three month committment***

Ideally for longer!

 If you would like more information, please email us or you can call Sam for a chat. 03 477 0484.  Drop a bit of information about yourselves, your hopes and dreams, where you've been and what you love to do. Adding a CV for a touch of professionalism couldn't hurt either.

START DATE: Mid January to Early February

Minimum stay 3 months.

You need to have a valid Work Visa/Working Holiday Visa, a NZ bank account and IRD numbers.
The rent will be deducted from your wages but you will be able to claim tax back on those hours worked. Which can mean a surprise bonus! Yay money!
