High Season at the Caves

High Seasons at the cavesEvery day at the Waitomo Glowworm Caves many of our whānau and Hapū trust members take care of visitors from all over the world.  It’s always a busy time at the Caves during the high season and this year has been no exception with visitor numbers surpassing last season. The high visitor numbers has kept the guides, reservations team, retail team and food and beverage teams fully occupied.

Hapū trust member Huia Davis who is Head Guide at the Caves says “There are always opportunities for employment during the high season for trust members looking for holiday work. We look for people that have the right attitude and a good work ethic. Generally speaking we start recruiting in October-November for the summer period. Job vacancies are posted on the THL website www.thlonline.com and on the RUHT’s Facebook page".

Hapū Trust members who are suitably qualified are given preferential employment at the Caves.  Registering on the THL website means you will be updated on all job vacancies as they become available. The Caves is a great place for school leavers and tertiary students to find work during the summer months and we hope to see more of our people working at the Caves
