New Zealand is a Great Place to Work

New Zealand is a Great Place to Work

It’s a great time for skilled international people to be looking for work in New Zealand.

So says Working In: New Zealand, a directory-style magazine that is distributed far and wide to returning New Zealanders and migrants by the New Zealand Immigration Service, promoting employment opportunities within New Zealand companies for qualified, skilled professional people.

Deputy Prime Minister Jim Anderton, who penned the magazine’s foreword, says this is probably the best time he can remember in forty years to be looking for work in New Zealand.

Prime Minister Helen Clark also welcomes returning New Zealanders and migrants with the message that changes in the New Zealand economy mean more opportunities for those with skills in areas of high growth potential.

93 Kiwi companies have advertised in the Working in: New Zealand 2003 directory, ranging from manufacturers and health boards through to some of our best technology companies. All have found there is a chronic skill shortage within our existing workforce.

Working In focuses on attracting employable migrants. “We target people with in-demand skills, good qualifications and relevant experience,” explains Founder and Director, Hayley Roberts.

Working In also showcases career and lifestyle possibilities in New Zealand via the Opportunities New Zealand Expo in London, and the Working In website. With over 1,500 visitors a day to, Roberts says, “New Zealand is more than ever the migrant’s country of choice”.
