Jobs at CherriTM

We’ve got plenty of work for you this summer from December through to June.

Central Otago in summer is the place to live, work and play. The sun is shining and the adventure playground of the south comes to life. We grow the best cherry’s in the world in the sun drenched orchards in Cromwell and surrounding areas.

We love to have fun in our orchards…working with us is not only about picking ripe, juicy cherries, but about working with a young and energetic team, committed to picking the world’s best cherries.

We can provide assistance for accommodation, transport to and from the orchards. We will also host social events throughout the harvest season. Our season is expected to start in early December and will end in February.

It’s not all work and no play. You’ll have time to enjoy the hospitality in the likes of Queenstown and Wanaka.

Summer also heralds the start of the summer concert and festival season.

We provide excellent pay conditions and there’s a wide mix of roles from picking and packing and everything in between. There’s something to suit most levels of experience.

Are you an international backpacker currently in New Zealand?  We can provide assistance in applying fore a working holiday visa extension. We have access to a discounted immigration application support service.
