Hi there,
we are Myrie and Matt, a German/Kiwi couple - last year August we took on a new challenge running a motel business in sunny Nelson. The 6 years before that we owned a busy backpacker hostel on the WestCoast where we have already enjoyed hosting and meeting work-exchange volunteers from all over the world. Four months ago we became parents too and this really keeps us on our toes.

Our small motel is in central Nelson and there are plenty of great cafes, bars, restaurants, parks and art galleries in walking distance! Not to forget Nelsons famous arts & craft and farmers markets. ...

We are looking for a couple/or two good friends to help out on reception and with some relief managing. The places are available from the 18th of April onwards. We need you to be able to commit for a minimum of 4weeks, longer preferred (we are also looking for a couple for a longer period in July/August).

If you have some experience on reception or in a similar customer service position this might be for you. As our motel is small & 'family run' you will be involved in all the different tasks which are required in the day to day running of an accommodation business.
Next to classic office & reception tasks it also includes helping with room cleaning, bed making, laundry etc.

You have to be fluent in English. We provide accommodation in a private double or twin, fully self-contained studio unit, with use of laundry facilities, Sky TV and unlimited free WiFi. The exchange work is 3hours/day (21hours/week) per person. There is some flexibility to arrange these hours so there can be days off or you can have a part-time job, as long as it works for both sides.
If you are interested, there will be some additional paid hours available, and approximately a full week paid when covering when we take time off.

If you are keen and available from around the 18th of April for a minimum of 4weeks please contact us with the dates you could commit to, and send your CVs (incl. contact details for a work reference &/or helpX feedback).

Please note, you need to be allowed to work in NZ, i.e. working-holiday visa. We have a friendly Golden Retriever, Bez; who is very social and looking forward to meet you.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Matt, Myrie, Elisa and Bez
