Today we’re excited to launch a brand new program in New Zealand! Our New Zealand ‘Kiwi’ Working Holiday program offers Canadians between 18 and 35 the opportunity to kick start their trip down to New Zealand with employment support, visa application assistance, and fun arrival activities.

What is a Kiwi you might ask? Kiwi is a friendly nickname for New Zealanders after the country’s icon – the Kiwi bird (not the fruit). Indigenous New Zealanders, the Maori peoples, named the small flightless bird after the sound it made, keee weee.

The Kiwi Working Holiday Program will help you start your adventure right in New Zealand’s largest city. Auckland is a great place to base your adventures around New Zealand. From here you can explore the North Island’s beautiful beaches, surfing, volcanoes, underground river tubing, bubbling mud pools, hot springs, and waterfalls. Think that sounds like fun? That’s just the start!


On our new program, you can begin your New Zealand Working Holiday in Auckland.
Located on the Hauraki Gulf, Auckland is New Zealand’s largest urban center.

We manage the details, you plan the adventures!

Our team is here to help you from start to finish. We help you apply for your working holiday visa, open your New Zealand bank account, set up your cell phone and find long-term accommodation. Our employment experts sharpen your resume, make sure you are in top interviewing shape and provide a two-day arrival orientation. You will land in New Zealand with your airport pickup and first three nights accommodation taken care of so you can focus on getting adjusted to your new home.

In addition to providing support for the duration of your trip, we’ll also invite you to social events and trips so you can meet new friends from the very start.
