About Program

New Zealand is for nature lovers. Lush rainforests and mystical mountains are flanked by a wild ocean full of marine life. And during your Working Holiday in New Zealand, all of this will be on your doorstep.

The North Island is full of culture and history, with lively cities and a strong Maori culture. Home to the capital city of Wellington, and New Zealand’s largest city of Auckland, the North Island offers everything you could wish for in a cosmopolitan destination.

The South Island is where adventure awaits. When you’re ready to get amongst it in-between jobs, the South Island will more than satisfy your need for thrills.

On a Working Holiday in New Zealand, seasonal positions will help you replenish your travel fund while you explore the country. We’ve developed countless relationships with businesses that are eager to hire travellers, so looking for a new job is one thing you won’t have to do when you book with Global Work & Travel.

Settling in seamlessly!

My partner and I have just finished our first couple weeks in Auckland New Zealand with Global Work and Travel for our working holiday! The jobs global organised for us have been incredible, the company I am with shows so much care already for employees and I’m enjoying every single shift. Finding our accommodation in the CBD was made super easy with Globals advice and support with banking, organised jobs, free experiences to explore the city and helpful advice for settling in! We are both loving the experience and grateful for Globals support!

Pros
  • Great job opportunities
  • Incredible inclusions
  • Helpful support & guidance
Cons
  • Organising accommodation separately

New Zealand Working Holiday!

Have always wanted to explore & experience New Zealand. Global helped that happen, by guiding me through every step & asking what I wanted. I am now living in Auckland CBD in an amazing apartment with a job I love & a lifestyle I have always wanted. The whole process was very easy & enjoyable, my trip coordinator Bella helped with everything & went out of her way to ensure it was all perfect. Beyond grateful I did this! Would highly recommend if you want to work & travel. It’s a great way to travel, work, experience the culture & meet like minded people 🌎

Pros
  • Risk is removed with the support of Global.
  • Moving abroad is so easy & enjoyable with Global.
  • I now have the lifestyle I want.
Cons
  • Hard to find staff accommodation in NZ. But easy to find normal shared or private accommodation.

Working Holiday in New Zealand

I signed up for work holiday in New Zealand with a friend, and my trip coordinator was Kim Olsen. She was very helpful and friendly through out my entire process leading up to New Zealand, when I arrived in Auckland, and during my journey on the ground.

Kim was always available via email or phone call and always reminded us that she was there to help, she made me feel like I had support even in my most confused moments. Thank you, Kim! :))

I've been in New Zealand for a little over a month and so far am enjoying my experience, and I still have some excursions left to do that is offered through Global Work and Travel. :))

Pros
  • Meet new people also in the programme
  • Built in excursions and tours
  • Help setting up cell phone service and bank account

Priceless experiences

My experience was unique because I learnt new things of the world and specially of myself. It was apsolutely terrifying at the beginning to go away from my confort zone and basically all I knew and go to another country where I didn’t know anyone. This new beginning made me realise that I can do anything if I really want to and there is nothing which could replace that experience. I will always remember these 6 months. I got so many friends I wouldn’t have ever even met without me being brave enough.

Global Work and Travel co Review

This adventure has been very unpredictable from the start. At just 18 years old I packed my bags and left home putting my full faith in Global. I arrived in beautiful Auckland with a driver and a sign with my name on it. Feeling like a movie star I was dropped off at Attic Backpackers in the CBD. I had orientation the following day where I met Heather and Andrea who were also Global travelers. After sharing our experiences we all came to the realization none of us had jobs secured or a plan for that matter. Feeling very anxious about being so far away and on my own for the first time with no plan I realized I was not alone. I made many friends fast. In just a couple of days we managed to make a crew of 20 mates or so. All from different places of the world, traveling for the same or different reasons, coming or going. New arrivals saw our group and assumed we had all known each other for much long than the 6 or so days that we had. Despite not having a job or waiting on an interview whether it be making dinner at Attic or going out to family bar it was so easy to feel carefree and enjoy my time with these new found friends. Eventually we all found jobs and went our separate ways. No matter the distance we managed to keep in touch with a group chat. Some stayed in Auckland even at Attic, some moved to Waiheke Island, where as I found my new home in Aoraki Mount Cook. Most of my friends are in fact older than me and have traveled and lived in many other places. With their experiences they seemed disappointed with their support and even in the size of the city. I myself can see where some areas of support lacked however being my first time traveling alone I believe Global was the perfect balance to get me on my feet and the experience to now figure life out on my on. Of course there has been nothing more unpredictable than the global pandemic of Covid-19 however New Zealand has done an outstanding job and I feel so safe and blessed to be in the position that I am. With the subsidy money from the government and with my knowledge and support from global I have been able to save money and find a new job for the winter season. I look forward to continuing my adventure exploring the mountains this winter while sustaining a job and hopefully traveling around New Zealand beautiful coast this coming summer. I am forever grateful of the strong connections I have made in the short amount of time and the home I found in the Mountains of Aoraki Mount Cook New Zealand.

What would you improve about this program?
My situation being very unique, New Zealand being a new place for Global travelers and with the drastic change in employment with Covid-19 there was never many job options. I was given one option until I spoke with a global traveler who had a job set in Mount Cook so I and asked for an interview there. Many people even did job searching on their own.
