How do you identify, recruit, and retain migrants who are skilled and motivated to work for your company?
Employing overseas workers can be a huge plus for your company. But how do you know they will be able to successfully obtain work rights in New Zealand? Our Visa Pathway assessment process will make your recruitment process a success. We check your overseas applicants to ensure their ability to meet visa requirements, helping you to shortlist and identify those candidates who can fill the gaps in your workforce.
Before a migrant can be granted a visa they must demonstrate:
- they have acceptable standards of health and character.
- they have specific skills, qualifications or work experience required for your role.
Immigration New Zealand sets detailed criteria here that may well be different from the expectations you have. Through our Visa Pathway assessment we can check the eligibility of any candidate you are considering, letting you know if they are able to qualify for a visa.
Don’t waste time considering a migrant who is ineligible to come to New Zealand.
How to find the migrants you need
Being prepared to consider and recruit migrants is only part of the puzzle. Knowing where to find the talent you need is a vital aspect – you can’t hire people you can’t find. Most NZ employers advertise on Trade Me and Seek but these can be unknown sites for migrants who are offshore. Other avenues should be considered and it pays for employers to be creative in their recruitment drives. The use of an industry specific recruitment consultant can be invaluable; check out our preferred partners page to access some of our great connections. Social Media is another great tool with migrant groups being a lucrative source of skilled talent. Talk to us about our connections across the migrant communities here in NZ and to those looking to relocate soon.
What happens if your migrant worker runs into difficulty with their application or immigration status?
The NZ immigration system can be confusing for overseas workers and it’s not uncommon for problems to crop up with self-lodged applications, visas already issued or even with maintaining a lawful status once they are here. If problems do arise this can have an immediate impact on your business and productivity. Having an expert steer you out of trouble is the best way to respond, they can guide you with any immigration matters and know the best and quickest way to solve these challenges.
