Join the team that runs the best underground adventures in New Zealand.

We have up to 6 training scholarships available towards obtaining your Level 6 NZ Certificate in Outdoors Leadership. These are full time “Earn while you Learn” internships.

Applications are invited to be selected for a “Waitomo Adventures Field Day” to be held in late August where selected individuals will be given some awesome experiences and the chance to earn one of these six amazing scholarships.

We are the home of the phenomenal Lost World; Haggas Honking Holes; St Benedicts Caverns; TumuTumu ToObing and others.   If you’re successful, you will be stepping into a tight team; a professional but relaxed family-style company that has been operated by the founder for over 30 years.

We were the first serious-adventure company to run out of Waitomo, innovative; boundary stretching and with a wicked sense of humour.  Some of our guides have been with us for almost 20 years. We take our job very seriously; giving people life changing experiences and ensuring their safety is paramount every day.

Waitomo Adventures is a seven day a week operation, meaning you will need to be available to work a rostered shift that includes weekends.  Along with this you need be flexible and adaptable.  A love for the outdoors: a good base level of fitness and being patient with people is a must.

Health and Safety is super important to us; there is pre-employment and ongoing drug testing so only apply if you know you will pass this on an ongoing basis.

No prior experience is necessary – It’s all about attitude. Upon winning the scholarship placement you will embark on a training program that teaches you everything you need to know about our caving experiences.  Essential attributes include a positive attitude, being on time and having a natural inclination to contribute to the team.

Check out our videos and website www.waitomo.co.nz to see if you think you would be a good fit.  If so, then let us know why – send your resume and a covering letter to nick@waitomo.co.nz.

Not many Employers can say “You will never be replaced by a robot”… We can !
