Working with Wilderness Lodges represents a unique opportunity to live in two of the most wild and beautiful parts of New Zealand. We are often looking for hard-working and enthusiastic people to join our small teams at each lodge.

Working in a remote location comes with a unique set of challenges but can be very rewarding. Genuine team players with a love of nature and the outdoors will thrive here.

Below is a list of roles we are currently seeking to fill:

Lodge Assistants: Roles mainly focus on restaurant and housekeeping duties. You will be serving in our small restaurant and cleaning guest rooms to a very high standard. These roles are well suited to people with some previous hospitality experience looking to live in a beautiful place and save money. Applications from couples are encouraged.

Second Chef: An exciting role for someone with previous cooking experience looking to develop their skills alongside an experienced head chef. You will work with quality ingredients and produce food of a consistently high standard.

Nature Guides: Share wild New Zealand with our guests. You will need to be a genuine 'people person', have an excellent knowledge of NZ natural history, previous guiding and communication experience and a strong focus on safety.
