Looking for a secure a summer job? Come to beautiful and cheap living Hastings. We've got Plum, Nectarine, Kiwifruit, Pear, Berry and Apple thinning from October right up to Xmas. . It's essential service work and our workplaces have worked continuously and safely through all the Covid 19 levels.

I'm an employer and “Working Hostel” owner (Sleeping Giant Backpackers) with cheap  accommodation conveniently located near supermarkets, banks, and sports park. Handy to Napier, local beaches and wineries, it's a great working location. If you have your own accommodation no worries. Our orchards are all within 10 minutes of Hastings.

We are looking for responsible fit and healthy workers looking to earn at least or above the minimum wage ($20 + 8% Holiday pay) in our orchards while working on that tan. Work starts at 7.30 and finishes around 4.30 pm 5-6 days a week. Approx 48 hours a week

Thinning isn't heavy work but involves plucking the excess fruit working off the trees from the ground as well as on ladders. It is essential candidates are comfortable working at heights as well as being able to handle 12 foot aluminium ladders. Training is provided but candidates that do well have generally done some form of outdoor work before or are sporty and coordinated.
Own transport is an advantage but there are some share ride options available as well.
