COUPLE wanted for at least 3 months housekeeping work during peak season in Glacier Country.  Accommodation and training available. Ideally to commence at end January/start February 2020.

Want to know more...

Thanks for checking out our position. The motel is an 18 unit modern complex found in the Franz Josef Glacier Village. We mainly cater to overnight international tourists.  We are a small team who enjoy our work and each others company.

Housekeeping: 6 mornings a week as rostered.

We start at 9 am to be finished about 12.30-1.30 pm depending on the number of rooms at the motel that need to be cleaned.  After a lunch break there is then a large holiday house located just out of the village that usually takes 1.75 to 2.25 hrs for two people to clean per check out finishing by 4 pm. 

The cleaning work is usually around 24 to 30 hrs per week each.

Full training is available but we will need you to be very fit capable of working with others good at following instructions and have EXCELLENT attention to detail.  It's simple work but the ability to learn take on feedback from room inspections and keep a good routine going is essential. 

If you know that you are not a naturally tidy person that is not great working to a pattern then this is  not the job for you.

Reception:  One of you will ideally have front line hotel / motel experience and be skilled and confident in working in reception as rostered for up to 12 hrs per week with the potential to grow to 40+ hours after peak season. There are also commissions to be earned selling tours to our guests.

Other work: To complement this work while the hours are minimal there are some good options available for afternoon / evening work at near by restaurants & shops.  

Accommodation: We have available for rent a refurbished 14ft caravan nestled in the rainforest at the back of the motel. It has all the important things like water supply heating cooking facilities fridge double bed wifi etc. A great shower and a toilet are located handy to the van in the garage.  Rent is $45 each per week.

Car: A car is handy to get out and see the sights in your time off... but not essential for work as you will be living on site.

We are seeking people entitled to work in NZ or holders of a working holiday visa. Due to the short term and seasonal nature of the position we cannot assist you with gaining a visa prior to arrival.

Franz Josef Glacier is a great place to work meet new travelers and top up the bank account. The village has a community gym well-stocked supermarket a good fishing lake and lots of great restaurants and bars.  If the great outdoors is you thing we have a river of ice in the backyard along with miles of walking paths through some stunning landscapes.  Have a look at the Glacier Country website below for more information on what this area has to offer!

If you think this may be the job for you both forward us your CV including a photo and phone number and we will arrange to give you a call.

We look forward to you joining us in 2020!
