Would you like to join Diana’s family?

Come experience the real NZ: fresh mountain air, real people, honest hard work. No experience necessary!

On the job training  in 4WD ATV, hydraulic ladders and pruning shears.

You need to be fit, prepared to climb tall ladders, not colour-blind and not suffer from eczema.

We prefer non-smokers, people who have worked outside and have driving experience, although this is not essential.

All employees must be NZ citizens/permanent residents or have a valid Working Holiday Visa. NZ IRD and bank account recommended.

Some accommodation is available, but we cannot accommodate couples. Bring your sunscreen and a sense of humour—get to meet some real locals.

After work, try out the horses, go fishing, hiking and river swimming.

This may not be the career job you have always dreamed of, but we guarantee it will alter the way you view the world.


And it is a great way to save for your next adventure!
