Employment at Pacific Resort Hotel Group

Pacific Resort Hotel Group prides itself on being a great place to work.

We place great emphasis on the area of Human Resources because we believe that people are one of the most important assets in an organisation. To say we're only as good as our staff sounds like a platitude, but it's the hallmark of our success both financially and in terms of our reputation in the marketplace. We therefore provide a solid training and induction to all new staff ensuring they have a strong appreciation of our objectives and values. We encourage our staff to be genuine and take time to talk to guests. Our desire is to create ‘fun’ in the work place in conjunction with professionalism in service delivery.


Applications and recruitment:

There are many career options available at the PRHG properties in a wide range of disciplines from food and beverage to finance and marketing. We are keen to meet talented and experienced individuals interested in joining our progressive, friendly and hardworking team.

We make a concerted effort, with great success, to employ Cook Islanders in frontline jobs. When possible we give preference to people living in our local Vaka (Village). This way we infuse our resorts with an authentic cultural experience for our guests. Whilst our preference is to employ local Cook Islanders or Cook Islanders planning to return home from time to time, we do recruit international experienced and qualified individuals from a range of countries if we are unable to fill the position locally and to ensure the highest standards in all areas.


Visa Requirements to work in the Cook Islands: 

PRHG operates its resorts and hotels from its Corporate Head Office in Rarotonga, Cook Islands.

Before a permit can be processed, we require the following to process visas for immigration:

- Full medical certificate by an Immigration NZ certified medical practitioner on Cook Islands Immigration Forms
- Police clearances may be obtained  from countries in which you resided for at least 12 months over the last ten years. 
- Return airfare (this is not the case for New Zealanders)
