Head to NZ to live and work as a local!Our team will assist you with necessary paperwork, job finding and accommodation. Enjoy a fantastic orientation week and make loads of new friends.

Explore the beautiful and unspoiled delights of New Zealand where you can live, work and travel for up to a year or more on our exciting work and travel programme.

In Auckland,  we have a team on-hand for your entire stay. They will help set you up with a tax file number, mobile sim card, medical card and a bank account.  Benefit from detailed work presentations and use handy tips to improve your resume and interview skills.  The team will give you access to an exclusive job database and show you how best to navigate it.

Your first week is based in buzzing Auckland and it’s surrounds. Enjoy an action-packed orientation including a city tour and a trip to the beautiful Bay of Islands, Cape Reinga, and a traditional Maori village to learn about the rich history and culture of this land.

Following the orientation, you are free to chose a job in the city, or venture out further!  Meet like-minded friends on the programme and move into an apartment. Once you have completed a couple of months work, use the money you’ve earned to fund further travels. There is so much to see including the rolling green hills of Hobbiton, rugged volcanic mountains, fabulous beaches and of course glorious Fiordland- famous for extreme sports!
