Salary is always going to be incredibly important and the single biggest determinant of where someone will work but alongside that, increasingly employees want to know about your values and how you respect staff. Part of the consideration is also what perks a business can offer and these can sway a candidate your way.   These are some of the top ones for Queenstown.   FLEXIBLE WORKING HOURS With many of your team likely to be in Queenstown for the lifestyle, the ability to offer flexible hours to fit in with their lifestyle, skiing in winter or hiking in the morning during summer are two that spring to mind and can make a huge difference to how your business is perceived by your workforce. It's also the number one consideration of perks. FREE PARKING We all know how painful parking is in Queenstown. If you are in a position to offer free transportation or better, free parking then you are onto a major perk that employees prize. Not everyone can get the bus and finding parking or running out to ‘move the car’ cuts productivity and frustrates most of us. Helping out with this, if possible can be a game changer. TIME IN LIEU Getting time back for additional hours worked is the second most in-demand benefit that your business can offer. Employees appreciate they may be called onto help out in key periods but a knowledge that you respect their time and will give back the hours goes a long way.   If you’re looking to set yourself apart from other businesses and attract and retain the best talent, employee benefits may help you stand out in your industry.
Tourism is booming. Every year, New Zealand’s international visitor numbers keep increasing , creating more demand for the industry. It’s forecasted that by 2025 there will 36,000 new tourism jobs across the country – and Queenstown represents a huge portion of this figure! Go with Tourism is a custom-built, innovative solution to address this challenge head on. The online platform, dubbed “Tinder for tourism” by media outlet Newsroom, offers a game-changing new approach to job search and recruitment – and is changing perceptions for the better. Since its launch in Auckland in April 2019, Go with Tourism has found great success and in August was awarded $5.2 million from the Government’s new International Visitor Conservation and Tourism Levy to go nationwide. In October, the Queenstown Lakes district was the second destination to adopt the initiative.   How it benefits the jobseeker Creating an online profile is free and takes less than five minutes to fill out. It does not require previous job experience or a CV to be uploaded – it is designed to highlight the candidate’s personality, current skillset and their potential as an employee. Candidates are also able to update their online profile as they progress through their education or career. Profiles on Go with Tourism are then ‘matched’ with registered employers when they have positions available that will suit the candidate. Traditional recruitment methods have been thrown out the window to allow personality to shine through as the most important trait, giving those who are new to the workforce – or returning – a better chance at finding employment.   How it benefits the recruiter Unlike job boards where you just post jobs, and job seekers view jobs, Go with Tourism makes it simple for employers to register once and be matched with suitable candidates. The employer can contact those that they wish to interview. It is also designed with filters that give you the power to find the perfect candidate. Search by type of work, qualification, work experience, drivers licence, eligibility and so much more. With Go with Tourism , there’s no need to post adverts on job boards and pay lots of money. Say goodbye to those CVs filling up your inbox too. You can choose who you see, and who you want to contact. Recruit as you need by searching for what you want, when you want!   By registering with Go with Tourism, you will join more than 70 businesses in the Queenstown Lakes district who are already attracting amazing new talent.

The jobs market remains extremely tight, however the peak period for the year seems to have been reached in October and is now slowly easing off. December and January are expected to remain strong months before demand dips significantly heading into the shoulder season, but employment conditions are returning to a more ‘normal’ level, if there is such a thing in Queenstown. Early next year the market should become a more employer friendly employment market as the summer and Chinese New Year markets subside mid quarter one. In November the number of roles being advertised eased back by 13% from last November and dropped a similar percentage from October ‘19.  All the major sectors eased, most notably the food and beverage job postings decreased significantly across the quarter [-14%].
