Short term in New Zealand

New Zealand is currently (2011) experiencing a period of low employment as it feels the effects of the international monetary crisises including the US Subprime loans and the European Euro monetary crisis. Therefore many positions are filled to capacity and many prospective employees are actively seeing work. Further disruptions in Christchurch in particular (Quakes in September 2010 and Febuary 2011) have resulted in business interruptions and workers leaving for other cities such as Auckland and Dunedin. Seasonal work such as fruit picking and other agricultural work is sometimes available for tourists such as backpackers formally but always available illegally. More information about legal seasonal fruit picking work can be found at Pick NZ . New Zealand has a number of reciprocal Working Holiday Schemes, which allow people between 18 and 30 to travel and work in New Zealand for up to one year and vice versa. At present young citizens of a number of countries from Europe, South America, North America and Asia can apply. These schemes are enormously popular and in many instances participants can apply to stay in New Zealand longer once they have completed their one year stay. Information on all the various schemes and application details can be found at:
