Hi, Welcome to the job board page for Darwin and Alice Springs and the surrounding areas of the Northern Territory. This page is dedicated to helping Backpackers and travellers find work in and around the major cities of Darwin and Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, jobs in Mining, Tele Sales, factory work, office work, IT work etc and work in the surrounding areas like Palmerston and Litchfield where you may find a job on the farms and in the tourism industry. We will try and cover all sorts of casual jobs that will help you while travelling around Australia. Many backpackers come to Darwin in the winter season looking for jobs and many never find them it's not easy and with the economy and new laws the government are looking at bringing in, it's not helping but the jobs are out there. If you want to work you may have to do a bit of research and even go door knocking, sometimes this is the easiest way to find a job especially in the pubs and restaurants in and around the city centres.
The Jobs Board will be updated as the jobs come online. A lot of the jobs do get taken before we get a chance to add sometimes especially in the busy season May-July. Backpackers and travellers please if you have any suggestions for the site or where there is work for fellow travellers, then please let us know this will help us and other backpackers find a job. We are only a small company and rely heavily on word of mouth. Employers if you are looking for permanent or casual working holiday makers for seasonal work in your company then please email us at Workstay or go to our contact pageand send your details.
