Keen to explore what this amazing country has to offer? Let us tell you more about how you can turn your dream into a reality.
What is the Passport Program?
Tradestaff's Passport Program is a way that you can work and travel all over New Zealand. You can move between different temp jobs in a variety of locations, without being tied to a single employer for a long period of time. It gives you ultimate flexibility, and also the opportunity to see parts of the country that you wouldn't get to experience if you were stuck in one location for a year or so.

What are the benefits of temping around New Zealand?
We created this program for the benefit of our candidates – to give them the opportunity to explore our beautiful country, and add work from a variety of employers in different locations to their CV. Temping around New Zealand allows you to explore new landscapes, people and open your mind to new horizons.
You can tailor the program to what you're after. For instance, if you're keen on getting into transport and logistics and experiencing what it's like to work in this field in different locations, you could jump from temp jobs in Auckland, Bay of Plenty, Otago and Wellington, sticking to the same type of job but maintaining variety in terms of who you're working for and with, and where you are.
Alternatively, you might want more variety in the kind of work you're performing, especially if you want to get a taste for a couple of different industries before deciding on your pathway. If you have skills and experience in several sectors, you might want to use these to explore different job options. For example, you could spend some time working as bricklayer in Hamilton, before moving to a carpentry position in Wellington – the country is your oyster.
If you find you really like a certain location or a particular kind of work (or just want to stay here in the land of the long white cloud forever), we can set you up with a full time position once your taste for temp work runs out.
