Kia ora! Want to work for Ngāi Tahu Tourism, one of the largest tourism operators in Aotearoa?

Ngāi Tahu Tourism hosts more than one million manuhiri (visitors) a year across our thirteen iconic businesses, with a fourteenth, the All Blacks Experience, due to open in 2020.

The opportunity

We are currently looking for new Trainee Guides to join our team at Franz Josef Glacier Guides. We’re looking for people who have a genuine passion for the outdoors and adventure tourism, a knack for dealing with people and a natural ability to captivate and entertain guests.

We take great pride in warmly welcoming manuhiri (visitors) to our experiences and Manaakitanga (hospitality) is one of the core values that drives the way we do business.
