Amazing time!!

Yep IS is an amazing program!! I interned here for a couple of weeks and I can genuinely say, you will not be disappointed working with Yep IS! From the moment you start with Yep their mission is to go above and beyond to ensure a job and housing for you when you land. On top of that they provide all their participants with a detailed orientation of what to expect during their time in New Zealand. I'm from the United States and this orientation was a lifesaver, there are great tips on how to save money, cultural knowledge, and on the North and South Islands! There are weekly job updates sent to all the participants for all of the major regions in the North and South islands as well as weekly updates featuring a range of information from blog posts of other participants sharing their stories to jobs leaving participants recommend! Even better, when you leave Auckland you can still call or email the team for assistance! If you choose Yep IS you will get the most out of your trip to New Zealand, during my time working there participants who were ending their travels had amazing stories to share!

If you're looking for a once in a lifetime experience where you can meet new people from around the world, work unique and fun jobs, see incredible natural landscapes, and endless adventure then Yep IS is where you need to be!

Working holiday program in NZ

Hi, I‘m Mischa and make a working holiday program here in New Zealand. To help me planning my journey in New Zealand and finding some work, it was definitely the right decision to go to the organization Yep! IS in Auckland. In a great orientation I got to know how I can travel through the country, which gorgeous places I must see during my trip and how I manage my everyday life without any income.
For finding a job it is very useful to have an organization like Yep! IS because they show to you all the ways to find some, what you have to consider and how you organize it.
All in all Yep! IS really helps you to get a great start with your working holiday, gives to you very useful advices and tells you everything you have to know about it.
My first job here is working on a Kiwi farm, which is a very flexible job. I got it from Yep! IS and it is the best option to earn as much money as possible in only a couple of weeks. The managers of the farms and the supervisors always are very friendly and helpful.
Thank you Yep! IS for everything, I only can recommend it, so that you will have a great time here as well and be well-prepared for your trip like me ;-)

Yep - they've got your back

I had an amazing time in New Zealand! From the very first moment I felt welcome and very well taken care of. The YEP team was so kind and friendly and they went out of their way to make sure that we simply have an amazing time. It's been really helpful and a huge relief to know that there is always a place you can go to; no matter if we had any questions, wanted to store some luggage or simply wanted to cover some waiting time in the office. Besides it's been really great to meet other backpackers and hang out together. I'd definitely recommend YEP and would choose them again!

Helpful, friendly & fun program!

YEP IS was very helpful throughout my Working Holiday in New Zealand. Especially the first week of orientation days in Auckland really set me up for my gap year and gave me a lot of comfort in this unfamiliar environment. They help you with all the paperwork like IRD number or setting up a bank account. You always have somewhere to go to, someone to call or write an email to, if you have any questions or issues and they will help instantly. YEP IS also helps you with finding a job or gives recommendations on where to travel or what to do in New Zealand. I would definitely recommend the program YEP IS!

Amazing an unforgettable time

Yep! really helped me to make this experience something I will never forget and always look back with joy and happiness! I never had a feeling of loneliness or regret my choice, because I always knew, that if there is a problem, Yep! would always help me find solution as fast as possible. On top of that I was able to get discounts for trips and adventures for example Stray buses and the well known bar crawl. I would definitely book my next trip or adventure through Yep! and would recommend everyone from any age to do that too.
