Gap year jobs in New Zealand

Looking for jobs in New Zealand couldn’t be easier. Most visas can be applied for online, particularly the Working Holiday Scheme Visa (WHSV). This visa permits applicants to stay in New Zealand for up to 23 months, working for a maximum of 12 months. You can even enroll in a training or study course for up to 6 months if you feel you need to brush up on your professional skills.

Jobs in New Zealand are varied and numerous. Common industries for gap year workers include hospitality and administration. New Zealand also has what they call a ‘skills shortage list’. If your profession is one that is mentioned on that list, you’ve got the qualifications and experience that New Zealand is specifically looking for. This could make getting a permanent working or resident visa easier for you further down the line if you choose to stay on in the country.

And come on, why wouldn’t you? With the combination of sheer natural beauty and a bustling economy, New Zealand makes a great place to spend a working holiday abroad.
