Odd Jobs In Central Otago
Odd Jobs In Central Otago This winter, I came from Canada with a group of my friends to spend the season snowboarding at Snow Park. I intended on getting a part time job once I arrived and settled in Wanaka, but I didnt know it would be so hard to get work here. For two months I job hunted with no success - town was too quiet! After almost giving up hope the Job Agency in Wanaka gave me a call about some work at a cafe on weekends. I happily accepted (especially because I was almost broke) and started working the same weekend. After I worked a few weekends there, the agency started calling me with more and more work throughout the week. Over the last two months of the season I have done numerous odd jobs around Central Otago including; vineyard work, helping a moving company and even setting up a fashion show. Some of the work was awesome and some was terrible, but the agency always gave me something to do. They listened to what work I enjoyed and helped place me in more similar positions. When it came time to leave and move onto Queenstown, the agency in Wanaka set me up with the agency here and has already got me some work lined up. If youre a backpacker in Wanaka or Queenstown and looking for some part time work definitely pop into the Job Agency and see if they can help you out. They usually pay just over minimum wage and are good at finding you work each week. I had a great time working for them and hopefully you do to! by Kyle Gibson
