About us

Job Search is the leading working holiday company, focusing solely on providing our customers with all the essential products and services necessary to live, work, study and travel in Australia and New Zealand.

Our arrivals packages are designed so that as soon as you arrive in your chosen city, Job Search sets you up from the start. Your package includes a transfer from the airport to BASE or our affiliate partner hostels, voted amongst the best in the world. After having a night to relax you will then meet your local guide and other "like minded" travellers to complete your orientation. Your guide will take you step by step through your personalised welcome pack and on completion you will be feeling like a local, and most importantly be "work ready". You will then be invited back to the Job Search office for a one on one jobs consultation. At this meeting your guide will talk to you about the kind of work you would like to do whilst here, help you compile the perfect CV and then match you to the vast array of jobs we have on our database.

You will also be given login details to the Job Search website where you can search for jobs all over Australia and New Zealand. Not only that, as you travel around each country you will be able to visit our offices nationwide for continued help, advice and support. We are here to assist you in anyway we can throughout your stay.

Why use Job Search?

Here's 10 reasons why we are different.

Don't like to waste your time?

We are the best resource for Working Holiday Visa specific jobs across all Blue and White collar industries which will be suitable for all age ranges and work experience. Why spend hours and hours pounding the streets or trawling through lots of websites and applying with hundreds of other people just to get no response?

Don't like carrying a backpack?

Job Search is not just for backpackers. We realise that many people are now coming to Australia and New Zealand on the promise of a booming economy and great work prospects. Through our various partners, we have access to a large range of diverse roles to offer you. We will simply match your previous experience and relevant qualifications to jobs within our network, many of which come with sponsorship or 2nd year Working Holiday Visa in Australia opportunities.

Dare to be different?

Unlike some other work and travel companies, we do not employ scraping systems or copy and paste from other sites to create the illusion of a jobs board on our website. All the jobs we post are up to date, 100% Working Holiday Visa friendly, 100% real and only come from our partners. Not everyone can post jobs on our site. We are incredibly selective with the employers/recruiters we use so we can ensure that the jobs being listed are relevant and suitable for you.

Included in all of our arrival and membership packages are all the tools you need to be ready to work. We set you up with your Bank Account, Tax File/IRD Number, Medicare (where applicable), SIM card and any applicable training courses you may need. We also give you one to one help creating your CV to ensure you have the best chance of wowing potential employers.

Like to stand out from the crowd?
