Upper Hutt Multicultural Council

There are hundreds of seasonal jobs in Wairarapa right now
Often you won’t need any extra skills or experience to get a seasonal job – just the right attitude.
If you want to take up seasonal horticulture or viticulture work of 6 weeks or more and need support, we may be able to help through the New Zealand Seasonal Work Scheme (Incentive Payment of up to $1,000 and Assistance with current Accommodation costs).
You don’t have to be on a benefit to qualify for the scheme.
Accommodation: There are accommodation options available – if successful in gaining employment.
There are lots of reasons to consider seasonal work – it can lead to a permanent job, or it can help you move into other types of work using your new skills and experience.
Talk with us to find out more, get in touch with :
Pohswan Narayanan 04-8191653 or Deborah Kenny 049136849 and say you’re calling about the Seasonal opportunities in Wairarapa.

The Upper Hutt Multicultural Council is a non-profit organisation established in 2006 to promote cultural diversity in our local community. Though we’re not government-run and are not politically aligned, we operate with the full support of the Upper Hutt Mayor Wayne Guppy, as well as the MPs for Rimutaka Paul Swain and Chris Hipkins.

Our aim is to encourage vibrant cultural communities in Upper Hutt by strengthening social ties, raising awareness about cultural issues, and supporting new migrants and minority ethnicities.

What We Do

Each year we coordinate and sponsor numerous community initiatives, including:

  • Hosting the annual Upper Hutt Multi-Ethnic Soccer Tournament
  • Organising the annual Upper Hutt Multicultural Festival
  • Running a women’s self-defence course
  • Running a professional speech development course
  • Supporting the Hutt Valley Newcomers Network and Hutt Valley Settling In Project
  • Supporting E Tu and community safety projects in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Development and the Police
