NZ Permanent Residents - Permanent Residents of New Zealand are allowed to work anywhere in New Zealand for any employer.

NZ Work Permit/Work Visa holders - Please note that the work permit/visa will require you to meet the conditions as endorsed on the visa by the New Zealand Immigration Service.

International Students - If the condition on your student visa allows you to work for certain number of hours within a week or during your holiday break, we might be able to arrange a job for you only for the number of hours as permitted by the New Zealand Immigration Services.

Working Holiday Visa holders - The Working Holiday Scheme offers an opportunity for young people between 18 and 30 years of age to experience life in New Zealand on a working holiday. This scheme covers an agreement between New Zealand and a few countries. It will allow you to work for EastPack for the entire fruit season. For some people there will be the opportunity to extend this period even further. You will need to apply while still in your own country.
