  • Jobseekers should be aware that the start and finish dates of harvest work employment may change from those suggested by wineries at the time of your job offer. Vintage dates can not accurately be predicted.

    It is therefore important that you understand that depending on your employment arrangements with the employer there may be a period of time where you have no work or less work than you were expecting, and should have sufficient financial arrangements in place should this occur. Your actual start and finish dates may vary - if you have queries around this, check with your winery employer before booking airline tickets etc.

I chose winejobsonline because the wine industry is a key employment market for working holiday makers that come into New Zealand and Immigration NZ needed to let employers and workers know of the new online application service and the changes that were taking place from an immigration perspective. I t was also important for us to outline the impact of the new service to employers so they could know what to look out for when employing a worker on an electronic visa. I knew winejobsonline could get straight to the employers who need this information because they are a specialist wine jobs and employment service for the whole industry. Working with winejobsonline to distribute our message has been a smooth and effective process. They have been incredibly helpful and proactive in getting the message to as many relevant groups as possible - and continue to be as I send further updates.
