L’Arche Kapiti (New Zealand) is currently recruiting!

L’Arche Kapiti (New Zealand) is currently recruiting to fill two Assistant positions. We ask Assistants to stay for 12 months, and we offer:

  • free room and board
  • $75/week stipend
  • two days off/week
  • the use of a Days Away Vehicle for your days off each week
  • the use of a beautiful “House of Rest” by the beach for your two days off/week

We’re a beautiful and small L’Arche community just one hour north of New Zealand’s capital of Wellington. We’re located on the Kapiti Coast, in Paraparaumu, so you’re never far from a beautiful sandy beach. We currently have two homes and eight Core Members. Come to where the grass really is greener and experience L’Arche Kiwi style. We ask that successful applicants come in late May or early June of 2017 on a working holiday visa.
