Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays!

December 18th, 2014

Wishing all our website viewers Happy Holiday, and when you celebrate Christmas, a very Merry Christmas!

Over the next 2 weeks we will check email and posts, but a reply may take a little longer than usual as we also take a modest break, so please be patient, thank you.

First, check for visa

November 23rd, 2014

As much as we would like to help anyone who wants to make the move to New Zealand, we can only do so if you are eligible to apply for visa, with or without an offer of employment.
So your fist port of call should be the INZ website, www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant to check if you are eligible to appy for a work or permanent residence visa.
In many cases an offer of employment will be a requirement, and if this is the case, then we can help.

We can also recommend a good IAA-registered migration adviser who can do a visa check for you. Just go to http://www.newzealand-jobsearch.com/en/assess.php and you will know exactly where you stand, visa wise.

Finding a job and with it, getting a visa.

October 9th, 2014

Although we would like to help everyone, not all candidates qualify for employment or for a visa.
Job offers must meet INZ requirements, but there are other criteria as well.

We always recommend to check the INZ website, www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant, but as it is not the easiest website to navigate, and users often don’t know what to look for specifically, we advise to contact a good IAA-registered migration adviser.
Especially worth while for professions that are not stated on the INZ skills in demand lists. Migration advisers not only help the candidate but also the employer, to get the paperwork acceptable for INZ and that removes a huge hurdle.
We often work together with a few reputable services that we know and trust, and who have an impressive success rate.

So feel free to send us your CV for a free of charge employability assessment, and we will always provide you with as much information as possible to help you get started.

Comment from a happy client

June 27th, 2014

I had engaged Janneke to assist me in my job finding in New Zealand. Janneke had appointed her committed staff Harriette to assist me with my Job Search.Within weeks she was able to secure a job interview for me and I was subsequently hired for the job. It however did not last for long as my employer was irresponsible and did not pay my wage. I approached Janneke about my dilemma and I was surprise that she was willing to assist me in finding me a new job without charging the extra. Again Harriette came to the rescue and managed to secure me another job interview within weeks and I managed to get the job offer. After the first experiencing with a New Zealand employer, I was lost and disheartened in a foreign land. However Janneke and Harriette were kind, supportive and relentlessly assisted me in my job search. I am greatful to them for the assistance rendered.

Does your profession require registration in New Zealand?

June 7th, 2014

As most of you may know already, some professions require registration in New Zealand. Without registration you may not be able to find a position so it is important that you start the registration process in time as this may take a while to finalise.
Not only most medical professions require registration, also Teachers and Plumbers for instance must be registered.
To check out if you need registration, go to http://www.newzealand-jobsearch.com/en/reg.php where you can find the contact details of all registration bodies.

No more job search in Christchurch.

June 5th, 2014

Because of the current housing situation in Christchurch we have decided not to perform job searches in Christchurch for the time being. There are currently no affordable rentals available , landlords have raised rent prices to an all time high, often for really bad and dirty houses.
This kind of profiteering should not be supported and we therefor no longer look for employment for our clients in Christchurch.
