Kiwifruit picking Bay-of-Plenty

I have a woofing opening for someone who is handy in the construction area.

I need to build some portable sheds for storage (moving house soon).

I want someone who is a careful worker and will follow instructions as I want to try a few things a bit differently.

The work is board and keep for 4 hours work per day.

I am happy to take a couple with the view to the second person helping with chores around the house farm etc and giving a helping hand to do the building when required.

Would prefer someone with experience driving in New Zealand.

If you turn out to be the right combination of attitude and skill there MAYBE opportunity for additional paid work .

IMPORTANT INFORMATION (please take note):

The kiwifruit season in the Bay of Plenty is expected to start mid-March but you must register in person by the end of February. We are only recruiting people with valid working holiday visas who are willing to work the whole season that will end around the first week of June.

1.) We have guaranteed positions 10 on day shift (12hr shift) and 15 on night shift (some 9hrs some 12hrs shift)
2.) Must commit to full season starting mid-March to first week of June- contract and bond applies (approx. 10 weeks)
3.) Must attend information session at our hostel to understand work involved and processes
4.) Own transport and ability to take others preferred but we can organise hired transport if necessary
5.) Mature hardworking and responsible people only- we have obligations to the employers and may not offer positions to unsuitable applicants.

6.) You MUST have a valid WORKING HOLIDAY VISA. If you have not applied for your IRD number we can assist. 
Kiwifruit picking positions also available for minimum 6 week terms.
Applicants need to attend an information session at our hostel where the duties/requirements of the various roles in the packhouse will be explained in detail. Dates for this at the moment are 16th 23rd and 27th Feb 2015- you will need to be with us at least the night before in order to attend as time will be fixed depending on numbers of people and their onward travel plans. More dates may be allocated for groups of 4 or more people. You can secure a position first then continue your travels- we will contact you when you are required to report for training around the first week of March (our guests last season had the benefit of holidaying till the day before they had to attend training rather than sitting around for weeks waiting to be called up). As these are long term positions this will give you the opportunity to further understand the job and see and enjoy the Bay of Plenty environment before committing. For the price of a bus ticket you can get to know what the job is about reserve your place and not worry about getting a job at the last minute.
