Work permits and Visa’s

1. Do you guarantee to get me a job?
We cannot guarantee anyone a job. If you have transferable skills that are in demand in New Zealand and are on the skills shortage list, then your chances of getting a job are very good. If your job is not on the current shortage list, we can often still find you a position if there is not a New Zealander available to fill the position. This is done through labour market testing by the employer. Some occupations are easier to place than others. In some cases, the availability of positions that suit your profile will only be clear once you have engaged our services and our Employment Managers start working on your file.

2. What countries are you focused on?
All Countries.

3. What skills are you looking for?
We work with all skills, education and experience. Our team has helped people to secure good jobs across a wide range of occupations.

4. What guarantees do you offer?
Our guarantee is that:

  1. We will be open and honest with you in all of our dealings.
  2. We will inform you quickly if we believe we cannot help you.
  3. We will do everything in our power to help you find a job.

5. How long will an employer wait for me to take up my job?
While employers are aware that you are coming from overseas, they would expect you to be able to start as soon as possible. Your Employment Manager should be in a better position to advise you on this when the time comes because it varies from one employer to another.

6. Can you give me an idea of the salary range I may expect given my qualifications?
Please visit this link for salary ranges: http://www.kiwicareers.govt.nz.

7. Do you concentrate on one employer or do you arrange several job offers in parallel?
Your profile is Job Matched against an ever increasing list of positions in New Zealand. This means you may get several job offers, however, this would depend on the job market at the time.

8. What is the procedure of getting a work permit once I have accepted a job offer?
Once we have secured a job offer on your behalf that you accept, we will assist the employer with the job offer letter and contract. We will then go through the process of applying for a work visa.

9. Do I have the choice to decline a job you offer to me?
You do not have to accept any job offer if you are not happy with it. We will keep searching until we find a suitable job for you. Please remember that New Zealand is a very small country in comparison to the UK, USA or even Australia, therefore the opportunities are often limited. You may want to take this factor into consideration when accepting or rejecting an offer.

10. What will be the expenses for getting a work permit?
These fees are set by the New Zealand Immigration Service. You should budget for approximately NZ$1500 for each person for visa processing and related fees. Depending on your immigration needs some additional costs may be incurred for Immigration Consultancy.

11. How will you help me get a work permit?
We will apply for the work permit on your behalf. The work visa/permit is issued by the NZIS and we are not to influence their decision. However, we will ensure that your documents from the employer are in order to limit the chances of your application being rejected because of the job offer.

12. Do employers help with relocation costs?
Typically New Zealand employers do not assist with relocation costs. There have been some exceptions to this and it will depend on the specific job, the candidate shortage in New Zealand and the employer in question.

13. What sort of Medical Plans are in New Zealand and how do they work?
New Zealand operates a ‘user pay’ system for health concerns, although accident and emergency care at a public hospital is free in most cases. Many people opt for medical insurance from one of the many providers who give a range of cover from Doctors’ Fees, right through to Specialists which can include dental and optometrist care, Trauma Care, Life and Income Protection, and Disablement. All premiums are priced to reflect the degree of cover. Most policies are age adjusted, and have an exclusion period for pre-existing conditions which are assessed on a case by case basis. Our Settlement program includes access to a variety of information sources to answer your questions.

14. How does the New Zealand schooling system work?
New Zealand has both private and public institutions which offer a high standard of education for our young people, and also for those looking to return to education to update their skills and/or training in order to better fit their desired jobs. Education starts with pre-school options for children from the age of 3 years. Most children enter the Primary system at age 5 and progress to Secondary school at about the age of 13, where they can stay for up to 5 years. During the last 3 years of Secondary they study for and sit exams towards the NCEA (National Curriculum of Educational Achievement) qualifications which have 3 levels, the 3rd of which is usually necessary for entry to the tertiary institutions of University, Polytechnics or their equivalent. The school year is divided into 4 terms, but children are able to start school mid term or whenever they come to New Zealand and move into the local school ‘zone’.

15. My spouse and I both want to get a job in New Zealand.
Only one of you needs a job offer to apply for a work permit. Your spouse will receive an open work visa/permit on the strength of the principal applicant’s visa/permit. If you want us to do two job match/searches, we can help you find multiple placements in the same city.

16. We have the necessary points to apply for residency?
If you have the necessary points, you should consider submitting your Expression of Interest. The NZIS will sometimes grant residency very quickly, particularly if you have a job offer. Once we have secured a job for you, we can submit the job offer to the NZIS to complete the processing already started.

17. What is the average time scale from commencing with your services to moving to New Zealand?
This is a good question. It all depends on the job market at the time we start the job match/search for you. Once the Employment Managers start working on your file, you will be able to get a clearer picture. Most employers are reasonable and so you should have sufficient time to make the move across.

18. Which part of New Zealand do you usually get job offers from applicants or where would I most likely be able to get a job offer?
We primarily look first in your preferred locations. Auckland is the biggest city in New Zealand, and therefore the most likely place where we might find you a suitable position. The next options are Christchurch and Wellington.

19. Can I apply for permanent residency with the job offer that you provide instead of coming initially to New Zealand on a Work Permit?
We encourage people to come initially on a work permit is because the process of applying for permanent residency is time-consuming and sometimes can take up to 18 months. Consequently, employers might lose interest and it could result in a lost opportunity for you.

20. How can you ensure confidentiality?
Any information you send to us will only be used in strict confidence on our secure electronic database which is only accessible by the members of our team. Our organisation adopts best business practice policies at all times and more particularly when it comes to personal data. Our staff members are qualified and experienced in this field. Our role is to provide a premium migrant placement service to individuals, who like ourselves, take pride in their jobs and act with respect for one another.

21. Are you an Immigration Agent?
Yes; we are a registered Immigration Agent and we also work alongside other Immigration Agencies where appropriate to assist our customers.

22. Why do you insist on a fee for job placement service?
New Zealand is a very popular destination and we receive thousands of visitors to our web site every day looking for a new life. In order to provide a quality service to those people who really want to come and live in New Zealand we have to make a commitment and employ professional staff to help you. We also ask you to make a small commitment to show your level of interest in actually moving to New Zealand so we know you are serious. This enables us to focus on you and not be distracted by all the people who are just window shopping and

23. How do I know you will be successful in finding me a job?
Our offer to help you is genuine and we will do everything in our power to secure your job offer. We are not perfect and sometimes the market is more difficult depending on the economic climate. Your commitment to the process is as important as our commitment to the process. Your success is our success!

24. What do I have to do?
We are offering you access to a real and well proven New Zealand based Immigration and Job Placement service. You need to decide if you are serious about moving to New Zealand.
