Get a job in New Zealand

Most migrants will look for a job to earn a living in New Zealand and a job offer is often needed to meet visa requirements, but looking for employment in a new country is a daunting task.

To be successful in your job hunt in New Zealand

  • Partner with a dedicated team of Job Search Professionals on the ground in New Zealand;
  • Know the job search techniques that will land you the job;
  • Make full use of our local connections and the NZIC Job Portal.

  • Access to our NZIC Job Portal

Two important facts about Job Hunting in New Zealand:

1. Job Hunting in New Zealand is different.

Job hunting in New Zealand is different in many ways from what you are used to in your home country.

Here simply sending out your CV can do more harm than good. You need to understand these differences and use the right approach to be successful in your job search.

2. 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.

What does this mean for you?

You need a partner on the ground in New Zealand. 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.

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."
