Seasonal Work In Motueka 2021

Apples in a Crate

This page will provide you with links and information about seeking seasonal employment in the Nelson/Tasman region.

There will be a variety of opportunities ranging from berries, apple and pear, kiwifruit, grapes and hops. Some work is in the orchards and other work is in the pack houses.

You will need to be physically fit and we are encouraging people to consider spending 2-3 months in the region. Full-time and part-time work available.

Accommodation is often limited. Our church family may be able to offer some board or park over properties for those with self contained caravans or campers.
