Since 2009 we have been placing working holiday visa holders onto farms throughout New Zealand. These participants are coming to New Zealand to learn about the culture and the customs of New Zealand while working and gaining life experiences.
Many of our participants have horse, farming or childcare experience and want to work and live the New Zealand rural lifestyle.
All participants have valid work visas, travel and medical insurance, have completed police checks and submit resume, cover, letter some pictures and references to be able to join our program. In addition an Internex placement supervisor interviews the candidate to ensure they are suitable for our farm hosts. When they are accepted we send you a profile about them and you can decide if you would like them to come and help out on your farm.
We expect our farm hosts to provide at least 20 hours of paid work per week. You are required to pay at least minimum wage and to pay taxes and ACC. You can then deduct the cost of the housing and meals from their wages using the schedule below. In addition to the 20 hours paid work per week the participant is expected to contribute at least 10 hours per week to normal household chores such as cleaning, cooking, gardening, shopping in an unpaid capacity. For any additional hours work above the 20 hours paid work and 10 hours of chores you are expected to pay at least minimum wage. You are also expected to provide an inviting home, private bedroom, and include the participant in your family activities.
If you want to join the program and have us find someone for your can let us know a little about your farm and your family below and we will find some travellers that are suitable.
