Central Otago is experiencing strong economic growth. As a result we have relatively low unemployment and high demand for labour.
This is especially so for seasonal employers such as orchards, vineyards and packhouses as well as visitor services such as cafes.
If you are looking to make a lifestyle change and move to Central Otago, or are looking for seasonal employment there are a number of employment agencies working in the district. For seasonal work in the horticulture industry we recommend you contact Seasonal Solutions or contact the employers on the seasonal work handout.
