Restaurants & Cafes Jobs for Backpackers

Restaurant & Cafe Jobs for Backpackers in New Zealand

Short-term jobs in restaurants and cafes can usually be found at the beginning of a season (in the South Island and in parts of the North Island, there is also a ski season during which help is often needed). For these jobs, you will need a good command of the English language so you would not mess up orders, and you need to be able to look neat and tidy at all times. The advantage of this kind of job is that you can usually earn a few tips if you do your job well, and if you just work part-time, you will also be able to spend some time with sight-seeing and travelling around the area.
