International Recruitment

Where there are no suitable New Zealanders to fill positions then the Hub will assist with fast tracking the labour market search component of the Immigration NZ process. To understand fully the process check out the following links to information.

The Immigration NZ website provides general information on immigration requirements here.

Further Canterbury-specific immigration-related information is here.

To ensure consistency and clarity on the skill level and code required for your position, you can visit this page to find the relevant occupational description under the Australian and New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO).

In addition, some skilled occupations are listed on the Canterbury Skills Shortage List which means that there are no available New Zealanders, and employers can look internationally for those skills.

If you need to fill vacancies in other skilled occupations that are not yet on the Canterbury Skills Shortage List, our Skills Brokers can help you check whether there are any suitably qualified New Zealanders available before you search offshore.
