In September 2011, the largest event in the last 20 years will arrive in New Zealand – the Rugby World Cup.  This is your opportunity to secure a hospitality internship or job for 6 or 12 months and be part of this amazing event.

People from all over the world will be arriving in New Zealand to watch rugby, take in all New Zealand has to offer and to be part of one of the biggest parties New Zealand has ever seen.

If you are a hospitality student and you are required to do an internship for 6 or 12 months, this is your opportunity to not just be there for this amazing event, but get paid to be there.  To find out how you can secure your paid hospitality placement, click through to the New Zealand Hospitality Internship or the New Zealand Graduate Hospitality programme page for full details.

What Internships/ Jobs are on offer?

When can I start?

Although the Rugby World Cup does not start until September 2011, hotels require all employees to start by July 2011 so they can be trained and ready for the arrival of the guests for the Rugby World Cup.

How many hours can I work?

We guarantee a minimum of 30 hours per week to all of our students and graduates we place into New Zealand.  Due to hotels being at maximum capacity during the World Cup, you will have the opportunity to work overtime from September onwards.

In Australia, you will work on average 38 hours per week, with the opportunity of working up to 15 hours of overtime each week.
