Do Your Skills Match the Demands of the New Zealand Job Market?


Can you realistically secure a job in New Zealand? Absolutely!


Several factors will determine your chances of finding work in New Zealand

  • Is your occupation in demand?
  • Is there a shortage of local workforce in your occupation?
  • Is your occupation on the Green List or one of the three Essential Skills in Demand lists?
  • Does your occupation contribute to driving the New Zealand economy?
  • What is the average salary for your occupation in New Zealand?
  • Do you have the necessary skills and experience, and do they align with the employer's expectations?
  • Do you meet the requirements to apply for a visa in New Zealand?

Years of experience in job search

Our team of Licensed Advisers has extensive experience in helping migrants navigate the visa process and job search in New Zealand. We can help improve your chances of getting hired by presenting your profile in the best possible light and meeting the local job market's standards. If you have a diverse skill set, we can advise you on the occupations most likely to result in a job offer.

Comparable labour markets

If you are coming from a country with a significantly different job market from New Zealand's, you may need to demonstrate the quality of your work experience. Moving to a new country requires being realistic, and if you are having difficulty finding a job in New Zealand, you may need to temporarily lower your expectations in terms of salary, position, or location.

Job market research

We recommend conducting thorough market research before applying for jobs. This will help you identify the most frequently advertised occupations and give you a clear understanding of where you fit in the market. While you may be tempted to apply for jobs, we do not recommend doing so until you have received our instructions and are 'document-ready.'

Be prepared. Do not jeopardise your chances

You usually only have one opportunity to apply for a particular position, and it is challenging to persuade an employer to wait for all your documents to lodge your visa application, even if they initially expressed interest in your application. Be prepared and ensure that you have all the necessary documents before applying for jobs.
