Every year there are thousands of seasonal jobs in New Zealand – jobs on farms, forests, ski-fields, orchards, packhouses, vineyards and in tourist hotspots.
Seasonal work can be a good option for a wide range of people looking to get back into work. With seasonal work you can:
- learn new skills
- get work experience
- be active and fit
- meet new people
- gain confidence
- earn good money.
It’s worth coming off the benefit to work – even for a little while. Work’s better for your health and better for your family. You may get a permanent job out of seasonal work – or move into other types of work using your new skills and experience. Some people end up working most of the year. While you’re working we may be able to give you extra financial help.
