Holiday Jobs

Get a job and work on holiday!Getting a hot holiday job is top of the list for many travellers who want to take time to see the sights as well as work and earn money. Travellers who want to doodle about Down Under on an Australian adventure, or have a new experience in New Zealand, often choose a holiday job that you can get using the one year Working Holiday Visa. Jobs in hospitality, on a farm, in an office or shop or in childcare are popular and fun ways of making money and saving your pennies to travel too.

GSOH essential…

If you pride yourself on being a people person then you might want to make your social life soar with a paid job that’s going to be fun, lively and a good laugh as well as giving you ideal experience and money in your pocket. It goes without saying that some of the best gap year destinations to get a fun job are in the land Down Under. If you sign up for a job starter paid work program in New Zealand or Australia you can get set up for a full year of working fun and get all the advice you’ll need, including help preparing your CV, all you need to know about taxes abroad, and interview advice, so you can live like a local and have a bonza time. Flirt with working fun on your travels and you’ll soon fall hard for the freedom it brings.

Meet and greet…

Working in hospitality gives you the chance to check out the top bars, restaurants and hotels across the world and you’ll soon be sipping the perfect blend of nightlife, buzz and local life if you throw caution to the wind in the world of work. Soak up the sights in Sydney and learn some barista and cocktail skills then bring on the bar buzz; or help out in a hotel and your hard work could hone your hospitality skills, as well as heaping up the hard-earned cash. Or whizz around the world as waiting staff and pick up a few great tips in more ways than one!

Office politics…

If you opt for an office job, you can add to your skill set, learn some admin action and make some great mates Down Under. Whether you fancy yourself as a slick salesperson, a top telemarketer, an A-star accountant or a general admin wonder, an office job is the ideal way to become a paid professional and then pop off to some perfect places on the profits. While away a few hours in an Aussie office and make a mint, then mosey on down to the beach for some hard earned chill-out time. Or become the next New-Zealand whizz-kid and fund your all-action adrenaline thrills in the adventure capital of the world!

Fun on the farm…

Try some fun and flexible paid work in the great outdoors and make the most of the climate and earn money at the same time. Become a feisty farmhand and get your accommodation and food thrown in as you get fit down on the farm. Or get out in the fresh air and try your hand at fruit picking, for a gap year paid job full of freedom and fruity fun. Get in sync with the seasons and score some serious cash on an outdoor adventure job and you’re guaranteed to have an awesome time!
