Lets live – paid gap years working in Australian school


There are opportunities for  graduating students to secure full-time employment in Australia. Let Live have received an overwhelming amount of requests from our Australian host schools for participants to commence placements as boarding house assistants, as soon as January. 
Working in a school environment is just one example of a Gap Year experience and one that Let live support with great enthusiasm. They receive encouraging feedback from Gap Assistants about how working in secure and established employment for a year, while having the flexibility to travel (hello school holidays!), has prepared them for life at university and beyond. Their life-long connections and social skills made abroad are invaluable for future work-related experiences.

Unfortunately, and cannot fill these au pair roles due to the borders being closed, so we would like to offer this opportunity to Kiwis in need of employment.

It is a great option for students who were perhaps planning on having a gap year and are now not able to travel or for those who would like to move out of home and see a different area of New Zealand, without the pressure of finding a flat and paying bills. For students interested in working in childcare we offer the option to study for their Level 4 ECE certificate during their placement – they can earn an extra $50 each week and receive a $500 completion bonus!
