New guides for employers & migrants in the Aged Care sector

23 May 2014

New guides for employers and migrants in the Aged Care sector

Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has launched two new guides containing useful tips and information for migrant workers and their employers in the Aged Care sector.

INZ’s National Manager, Settlement, Judi Altinkaya, says that migrant workers in the Aged Care sector have been identified as a priority group for targeted settlement information to help prepare them well for New Zealand aged care workplaces, which can be quite different from those in their own countries.

“These guides are the latest in a series of resources which help sectors’ employers understand the kind of challenges that migrants face when moving to New Zealand and help migrant workers settle more quickly into work and understand some of the differences they may experience here compared to home,” Ms Altinkaya says.

INZ has led the development of the guides in collaboration with key sector stakeholders including Careerforce, the Human Rights Commission, New Zealand Aged Care Association, Nursing Council of New Zealand, New Zealand Home and Community Health Association, New Zealand Council of Trade Unions, New Zealand Nurses Organisation, First Union’s Network of Migrants, Age Concern, Rural Women New Zealand, and Bupa.

Research undertaken by the Human Rights Commission and Victoria University of Wellington on the Aged Care sector also contributed to the guides.

INZ has already produced successful guides for employers and migrants in the Construction and Dairy industries.

A guide for employers: Are you employing migrant workers in Aged Care? and A guide for migrants: Working in the Aged Care in New Zealand are available here.
