Employers

Next time you have a skill gap don’t hesitate to contact us

Are you an employer with a skills gap? We have skilled migrants already living here, looking to enter the NZ job market from a wide range of professions. For every outcome we have, an employer has taken on a skilled migrant, which is fantastic as it means a migrant is well on the way to successful settlement. Having a migrant in your workplace is also an opportunity to increase your cultural diversity and develop international connections.

 

We offer

  • A professional and experienced employment service including post-placement support
  • No placement fee

Employer Testimonial

 

We have had several occasions to work with Jackie and her team in regards to looking for staff for our Quest Apartment Hotel here in Hamilton. We like to help out where we can to assist people to assimilate here in Hamilton.  Quest looks forward to many more years of association with the good folk of the Centre. We are glad to be a small part of their success “  Robert and Chern Hunter, Quest Hamilton.
