International Job Seekers
Not surprisingly, the employment opportunities generated by the Canterbury rebuild are attracting international interest.
Our priority, of course, is to match Canterbury and New Zealand job seekers with prospective employers. But the scale of the demand for workers in Canterbury for the rebuild and for other growth sectors means that there will be plenty of opportunities for migrant workers at all skill levels. If you are a migrant interested in working in Canterbury check the following information.
http://www.immigration.govt.nz/employers/employ/Canterbury/ provides a range of information around skills on the Canterbury Skills Shortage List (CSSL) and types of immigration options.
http://www.newzealandnow.govt.nz/working-in-nz also provides information for migrants.
A streamlined immigration and visa application service is available for employers and job seekers where jobs are on the CSSL
