Internship Opportunities

Each year we take a small number of interns for terms of 5 months or longer, and provide them with experience in working with a New Zealand adventure travel company.

For those lucky enough to be involved in the program it's an opportunity to learn a lot about a busy and exciting company, plus combine that experience with the opportunity to travel before or after their internship period.

We currently have vacancies for interns starting September/October 2016.  Please email your CV and cover letter to Anne (

Where is First Light Travel's office located?
We are located in central Auckland, the largest city in New Zealand and a great place to live!
Is it easy to find accommodation in Auckland?

Accommodation is easy to find. You can have a look on the Internet or search in the newspapers here. You should expect to pay NZ$100 - NZ$160 per week for a room in an apartment or shared house. There is plenty of accommodation in the central city and along public transport routes, so there's no need for you to worry about having your own vehicle.
