***We are currently looking for helpers for December/January***


We are located in Havelock Marlborough between Blenheim and Nelson in the South Island.
Our Backpackers is a historic building and was once a school attended by Sir Ernest Rutherford. Ernest is known as ‘the father of nuclear physics’ you may also recognize his face from the New Zealand $100-dollar bill!
The Rutherford boasts a spacious and a relaxed family environment, fully equipped kitchen and free WIFI. We have a cozy fire for the cold winter months and a garden and BBQ area for the hot summer months.

Havelock is considered the gateway to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds and with it offers so many beautiful and adventurous avenues to explore. Sea kayaking, scenic tours, walks & cruises, fishing, and water-taxies are just some of the activities available unique to Havelock. Havelock is also considered the Mussel capital of the world, we regard Havelock and the Marlborough sounds as one of the most beautiful places in the world and would love you to enjoy it with us.

We are looking for helper’s available short term (a minimum of 2 weeks) or long term.
Our helpers assist us with jobs such as the day to day cleaning of the Backpackers, outside maintenance, and gardening.
We also require people who have experience, skills or trades in building, landscaping or boat building as we have a number of developments on the go as well as a boat restoration project.

We offer free accommodation, free WIFI and all Backpacker benefits and features in return for just 2-hours of your time each day, 6 days a week.

For helpers who are able to assist us with building, landscaping or boat building we are happy to discuss further arrangements such as the provision of food or payment on top of accommodation as an added bonus provided you have the required skills and are available within a suitable time frame or term.

If you are seeking paid employment in town we can assist you in finding a position within the Sandford’s Mussel Factory located just down the road from our Backpackers (you must be available for a minimum of 3 months)

We look forward to speaking with you and sharing our beautiful town with you soon :)
