Pūkaha has set ambitious goals to grow both tourism, education and restoration sides of the business and we need smart and driven team members to help make it happen.

Pūkaha visitor hosts are the public face of the organisation, welcoming people from all walks of life to this special place and ensuring that every guest leaves with a better understanding of the natural world, what Pūkaha’s role is and how they can make a difference.

Pūkaha hosts are supreme communicators with a passion for wildlife, for teaching, learning and for storytelling.
