Ultimate Hikes provides visitors from all over the world with a unique insight into the magic of New Zealand's wilderness by offering multi-day guided walks on the world-renowned Milford, Routeburn & Greenstone Tracks.
We employ people with a diverse range of skills, experience, and backgrounds. Attributes we are looking for include a great attitude, an ability to work as part of a team and a love of the outdoors.
From time to time during our season, Lodge based jobs may become available.
These jobs would normally be either Lodge Attendants or Cooks & Chefs roles.
If you would like to put an application in, we will hold it until a job comes up when we can contact you to check on your availability.
Positions are based at the lodges on the Milford, Routeburn and Greenstone tracks and depending on the lodge you are working at, you would expect to be working either 4 weeks on with a week off (but having days off at the lodge while on track) if working on the Milford Track or Routeburn Tracks or 10 days on / 4 off at Mitre Peak Lodge at Milford Sound.
Lodge based positions have accommodation provided as part of our unique lifestyle package, with the board & lodgings rates including meals. You will have your own room and shared bathrooms.
Accommodation on leave is not provided but most Lodge Staff take themselves off on adventures on their time off, but this is your opportunity to tick that bucket list off.
To be a successful candidate for this exciting new opportunity, you would preferably...
Be a New Zealander or have rights to work in New Zealand. We will not be able to assist with sponsorship this season.
Have a hospitality background.
Have a can-do attitude with great communication skills.
You will be able to show previous experience and qualifications in your application. Previous positions in a remote environment would be an advantage.
If you have the passion and can-do attitude, then we want to hear from you.
