Cleaners & Odd Jobs - Coromandel Campground

Payment: Accommodation & Paid ($17.70+8% per hour less Accommodation & Expenses)
Location: Opoutere Beach
Region: Waikato/Coromandel
Experience: No Experience Necessary
Listing Added: 12/02/2020

Do you like seclusion, nature and beaches?

We are looking for 1-2 vibrant and physically fit persons to help us with odd jobs around camp.

Come solo, coupled up or grab a friend and bring your good vibes to Opoutere Coastal Camping!  One of The Coromandels best kept secrets!  Sssshhh!

The jobs will vary and may include one or some of the following (depending on how many people we get, how long you stick around for and what you are best suited to): daily facility cleans, weeding / gardening, clearing cobwebs, waterblasting, painting etc

We will provide you with a powered site in our pleasant and exclusive staffing area, full use of camp facilities, bbqs, and 1 free coffee made by our barista each day.  You can also have free use of our kayaks and learner surfboards when they are not been hired out. You will need to provide your own food, bring your own bedding, tent, caravan, motorhome, bus, etc.  We also recommend you having your own vehicle or sharing one within a group so you are self-dependent and able to get in and out of Whangamata if you need supplies or services.

A commitment of at least 2 weeks is required from now and until end of April. 

Under the new Government rules this is a paid job, working 7 hours per week @ $17.70+8% holiday pay.  As this is a live on site position for a powered campsite with full use of camp facilities (kitchen, showers, toilets, laundry, chill out room/games room, kayaks, and surfboards) your total expenses are $134 per week, which will be deducted from your weekly pay, which is the equivalent to the old rule ‘working for accommodation’. So YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A WAGE but your accommodation package will be paid for.

You will have plenty of time to go exploring, meet new people, do a little bit of work, go surfing, kayaking, fishing, do some yoga, go hiking or spend your spare time just lazying at the beach.

If you love nature, enjoy real human interaction and are not dependent on WIFI or phones you will enjoy your time here.  For those that need daily WIFI we strongly recommend that you have your own data pack and are on the Vodafone network. We can offer limited use of internet, computer, or phone service from our office. But as we are on a rural service provider we are unable to share this with you entirely and  in other parts of the camp. Alternatively, there are plenty of cafes and the library in Whangamata that offer free WIFI - just a 15min drive away.

Ideally we want people who can commit to 1hr a day for at least 2 weeks.  There are options to stay longer if interested.

Opoutere is a great location from which to explore some of New Zealand's best scenery in the Coromandel Peninsula. Hot Water Beach and access to Cathedral Cove can be reached within a 45 min drive North.

The camping ground is situated at the beginning of a beautiful and untouched 5 kilometre beach, with no roads to cross, just a lovely 2 min stroll through the pine forest.  All this in less than 2 hours from Auckland!

Drive 15 mins South to Whangamata for supermarkets, banks, ATMS, gas stations and a great selection of shops and places to eat.
