Employment Guide

The New Zealand job market may appear tough but it is no different from most other countries. When you’re applying internationally, you have distance, time and the fact that your experience is outside New Zealand often working against you. If you haven’t arranged employment before you get here, you’ll need to have patience while you search for a job.

The more experience and qualifications you have, the better your chances of getting the type of work you want. But even well-qualified migrants can take several months to find a job they feel happy with, and you may have to move out of your specialist field. This can be hard for some, particularly as they adjust to the country at the same time.

The team at NZ Jobs offer you up-to-the-minute briefings on the current job market; helping you to remain informed on industry movements, legislative changes, or topical news that may affect your job search.

In an effort to assist your career progression, we’ve compiled a body of useful guides, templates to help your job search. From how to write the perfect CV to achieving interview success, these useful tips as well as our industry insight will help you to achieve job satisfaction.

We assure you that all communication with NZ Jobs will be in the strictest of confidence. NZ Jobs look forward to working with you to help you to advance your career within your chosen industry.

Travel to New Zealand. Face to face meetings go a lot further than a phone call. The fact that you have taken the initiative to visit will impress Kiwis and make you memorable.
