10 Highest Paying Temporary Jobs In New Zealand And Australia


Planning a working holiday to Australia or New Zealand? If you are ready to start an amazing journey, here are the top 10 best paying jobs in both countries to consider.

10. Customer service & sales

Hourly Wage
Australia: AU$20.14 per hour on average
New Zealand: NZ$19.85 per hour on average
Range in RM: RM55 – RM170 per hour

Businesses in Australia are on the lookout for customer service and sales assistants more than ever and welcome working holiday Visa holders to apply. Being a telesales marketer or a tele-customer service assistant means you will need to serve, consult or assist your customers over the phone.


This is possibly one of the easiest ways to earn money in a comfortable office as opposed to fruit picking or house cleaning. However, most employers will prefer to hire those that are fluent in English or who have experience in telemarketing.

Downside: Over time, you may find yourself stuck in the same routine at work and that might bore you. Also, you have less flexibility in your schedule due to fixed officer hours and this may cut down your time to travel.
