Lonely Planet Review.

Unleash your creative spirit at this funky and colourful hostel in a restored two-storey Victorian residence. Guests are encouraged to draw and paint, or create sweet soul music on the hostel's guitars, pianos, didgeridoo and African drums. With all that creative energy, there's definitely a laidback social vibe, and this is one of NZ's best and most unique hostels.

The morning shift is 3 hours and your job will be to manage and lead our wwoofing team, you will need to be trained to make beds to a high standard and ensure that standards are maintained.

This is an accommodation exchange in addition it is also part paid. This position is for 2 months. The bonus pay is paid at the end of the contract, should you find a super amazing job paying $1,000.00 per week, I would not expect one to stay for $100 per 7 shifts, however if you do leave before the 2 months - you forfeit your bonus pay, the $100 per week gets paid every 7 consecutive shifts, you must hold an IRD number and working holiday visa.

At the moment I the owner find myself pregnant with complications, so I am looking for someone with a car, our current onsite manager has taken on much of my duties for extra pay, so if you have a car please enquire about other opportunities and pay at chillawhile...

This role generally comes up once a month, less when our staff stay on longer.

To express your interest in the above position, please send me an email stay@chillawhile.co.nz telling me about your self including personal interests, your life and work experience and it is favorable if we can see your facebook page or your blog site. We do need to meet you before we can put you on our reception, however we can offer you some casual wwoofing, and if you are the right person for the job, we will put you on our reception.
