NZ Hotel Front Desk Internships or Graduate Jobs


Front desk internships and graduate placements have previously been a position that you could work your way towards in a New Zealand hotel.  However, we are now placing more and more students and especially graduates into Front Desk positions as your starting position.

“They say that first impressions count, but it’s the last impression that the customer will remember”. 

As a member of the front desk team, you will be responsible for creating a positive and professional impression.  You will be the first person to greet a new client and the last person they will interact with when they leave the hotel.

The New Zealand Front Desk internships and graduate placements sit under the New Zealand Hospitality Programme. For full details on what the programme includes, costs and to apply, please see the New Zealand Hospitality Internships or the New Zealand Graduate Hospitality page.

We place hospitality or tourism students into Front Desk positions.  You will need to have immaculate presentation, speak English as a first language or fluently, have a great attitude and always have a smile on your face to be successful.

Minimum internship duration of 12 months to be considered for this position
