Breakdown of the hourly rate for New Zealand jobs

We know that NZ pay can be a little confusing. To help make it clearer, we have set out a breakdown of the components of the hourly rate for all jobs.

The hourly rate shown on a Sidekicker job page will be made up of:

  • a base rate 
  • holiday pay

If you are eligible for KiwiSaver, Sidekicker will also make an employer contribution to your KiwiSaver of 3% on top of this hourly rate. You can read all about KiwiSaver in this help centre article

Deductions such as PAYE and your employee KiwiSaver contribution will then be taken off this hourly rate. This means your ‘take home’ amount will be less than what is shown on the Sidekicker job page.

If you have any questions about your pay or you'd like to clarify anything, don't hesitate to reach out to us via the blue Sidekicker chat bubble!
