Job Hunting with NZIC: Powerful Job Seeker Support on many levels.

Finding a job in a new country is a daunting task and job hunting in New Zealand is different in many ways from what you are used to in your home country.

You need to understand these differences and use the right approach to be successful in your job search.

In New Zealand, we have a Hidden Job Market. Only about 30% of all jobs are advertised. To access the remaining 70% of job openings that are never advertised, you have to gain access to the Hidden Job Market.  

Local expert knowledge is the key to unleashing the vast potential of New Zealand's Hidden Job Market and maximising your chances of finding the job that is right for you.

You need a partner on the ground in New Zealand.

Our One-on-One Job Search Sessions:

A highly targeted approach to your job search in New Zealand.

To get started you will meet with your Job Search Consultant and develop your job search strategy based on your professional background and your plans for New Zealand - online meetings work perfectly well.

Your One-on-One Job Search Sessions will ensure that we can identify the best way forward for you to make the most of your professional skills and target the right roles for you.  

We will be your partner on the ground to give you exactly the support you need at any stage of your job hunt.

Our One-on-One Job Search Sessions will empower you to be the best candidate you can be in the New Zealand job market.

Our goal: Your job in New Zealand.

Our Interactive Job Search Webinars:

Our webinars are designed to run alongside your One-on-One Job Search Sessions and are conducted in an interactive online format.

You will meet a panel of our Job Search consultants and have a chance to put your job search related questions forward, while also hearing about experiences your fellow migrant job seekers have made on their job hunting journey in New Zealand.

Feedback from our Job Seeker clients:

"Great to know about the connecting element of your service that you will be offering soon, as this is what we actually need help with for the gruelling process of job seeking from miles away!" M.Z.

"This job search team was extremely supportive. Thank you for helping me with interview preparation and so much more.

I now have my dream job secured in New Zealand. I couldn’t do it without your teamwork effect.

I recommend anyone to take their advice if you don’t know how to start finding a job in NZ and for visa application." Zoey C. (Taiwan) - 5 star Google review

"Hi, Thank you, much appreciated!

Looking back, it seems strange now to think that for every job I've ever had, all I did was send in a CV and cover letter.

Obviously it makes more sense to open a conversation with someone first. However, never having done it before, I've got some catching up to do! Very best wishes, Antony"

"Your support has been just phenomenal. You have provided exactly what I needed, where and when I needed it.

Having your precious insights and ongoing emotional support gave me the confidence to push through a really hard time.

I cannot give you a big enough thank you!" F.R (Germany)

What our clients have said:

NZIC was a great help in getting my family and I to New Zealand. Anna was worth her weight in gold, she was fantastic at helping me format my CV and search for jobs that suited my skill set. In the end, I got a great job in a great city. Carsten and his team were very thorough and helpful when it 2020 came time to apply for and get our visas. Because of that, once we submitted our paperwork immigration had everything they needed from us and did not have to come back for more information. They are now helping us with our resident visas, and I’m certain that the process will be the same. I’d recommend them highly.

“NZIC shows commitment and provide professional immigration service.
At first, Maj kindly explained the whole process and what to expect. I was coached and introduced to New Zealand job market by their Job Search team, and getting assistance until I got a job in the country. The Visa team would also follow me up on my pending documents, so I never felt left out. Truly recommended for those seeking out an option to live in New Zealand. Big thanks from me and my whole family for things NZIC did for us..!”

"NZIC was the only company in New Zealand that we could find with a comprehensive Job Search service!"

"Thank you for your help on that journey! My job hunting has really been improved thanks to NZIC! Anna was always by my side, giving me advice, working on my CV and Cover Letter and even correcting my English! And then, thanks to Carsten, my application for my work visa has been accepted within only 3 days!"

"Dear Carsten, Katrina and all of our friends at NZIC- We can still hardly believe this wonderful event of our residency visas having come through! Thank you so much for all of your guidance, support and encouragement throughout the process; without you, we would have been adrift. J and I are over the moon.
We cracked open a bottle of local NZ sparkling wine last night to celebrate. Thank you for standing by us through this uncertain journey. It has made the world of difference to us having you there."
K.T South Africa October, 2020
