Farming and horticulture provide a strong local backbone to the increasingly important viticulture and tourism-related industries. Due to its handy central location, Cromwell is often referred to as the service, retail and gateway hub to Central Otago and Southern Lakes regions. With this brings a range of business and employment opportunities. And with the growing community, the building industry is booming.


As the tourism industry becomes a more active player in the local economy, so does seasonal work. Over summer Cromwell becomes a particularly popular destination for travellers seeking short-term work in orchards, vineyards and tourism businesses.

Many people also choose to live in Cromwell and commute to the nearby towns of Alexandra, Queenstown and Wanaka for work.

If you are looking for work in Cromwell, you should keep an eye on advertisements for vacancies in local bulletins and newspapers such as;
