JOB FOR ANIMAL LOVERS (Kaikoura, South Island) = animal care, gardening, housekeeping, DIY & projects.
I am looking for one person to join my small team. I have 40+ farm animals, offer off-site Llama Trekking, and have six unusual rental units (called Wacky Stays = yurt, tipi, train carriage, colonial wagon, house truck, farmers cottage).
The team (two in winter, up to five in summer) share a seven day roster. Salary = $21.60/hour (first two months), $23/hour (months 3+). 30hrs/week, March to November, then 40hrs/week from December through summer. 8am start.
On-site accommodation costs $100 (couple, shared) or $125 (single) each per week, and includes all bills, staff kitchen, bathroom, common room. Food is not included, although I provide tea, coffee, etc. and you can help yourself from the orchard (apples, pears, plums, peaches, grapefruit, orange, walnuts), herb garden and organic vegetables from the poly tunnel and nine raised beds (which you help look after).
Initially casual part-time employment contract, but longer-term a possibility (two staff retained through winter). You MUST have a background with animals, and housekeeping. You MUST live in NZ and either be a resident/citizen or have a working holiday visa.
Interested = message me with your email address, and phone number, and I will email the detailed job description. Immediate start for the right person/couple. I look forward to working with you - Kevin
