Bachcare are looking for a HOST WITH THE MOST!

If you prefer to spend your day out and about rather than sitting at a desk, with variable hours that fit into your lifestyle - we have your dream job.

The Role:

As a Holiday Manager, you are the face of Bachcare. You have a portfolio of holiday homes to manage whilst welcoming and greeting guests on arrival. You take pride in ensuring that each of your guests has an amazing holiday. You will work closely with our Operations Team to resolve on the ground issues with the hope that our guest experience exceeds their expectations. There will also be the requirement to clean and prepare your holiday homes for guests arriving and departing.

We are looking for:

Someone who is truly fanatical about the guest experience and helping people find their happy place whilst on holiday. You must be a jack of all trades and are in your element when you have to roll your sleeves up and make things happen.

You love to turn up your music playlist nice and loud and get stuck into cleaning and setting up properties so that they are pristine for the arrival of your guests. You are super passionate about meeting people and love to make an exceptional first impression!

You are an absolute guru when it comes to organising and thrive in an environment where you have to multi-task 101 different things. You must have a can-do attitude and love being a part of a fun hard-working team.

If this sounds like you please send your cv through to team@bachcare.co.nz

There is a couple of fenced enclosures and a larger run for those guests that require more space. A bit like a doggo heaven.

The National Party is considering a policy of fining parents $3000 if their children drop out of school and don't enter further education or training.

Simon Bridges says "The reality is if you're not in work, education or training, you're going to be languishing in a dole queue, and the evidence is potentially for a long time". Do you agree with this policy? Should parents be fined?
