Hello everyone,

I'm new to the whole travelling thing, and I've just booked my first RTW trip, with the view to work in New Zealand.

I've got my Working Holiday Visa, and I'm going to be there from mid-July to November.

As it's going to be winter there, does anyone have any suggestions / experiences regarding working in the winter over there? I haven't decided what I want to do yet, but I would like some advice on when to start looking for work, any pitfalls to avoid etc.

Thanking you all in advance!

Try the winter hotspots, ie. where the ski fields are. Queenstown is always super popular with travellers and has many backpacker-type jobs going almost year round - bar work, baristas, waitress/waiter, and then of course there are the jobs on the actual ski fields. If you're wanting one of those though, do some research in advance
