New Zealand Job Opportunities

July 8, 2011


New Zealand is currently experiencing a wide range of skill shortages which means if you are looking for work overseas, it could be the perfect location for you. With its sprawling countryside and picturesque scenery there has never been a better time to experience the work/life combination that New Zealand has to offer.

There are currently a wide range of jobs in offer in New Zealand spread over a wide range of occupations, and demand for skilled workers has never been higher. New Zealand welcomes skilled workers to settle right across the country, providing they have the skills and characteristics needed.

New Zealand currently operates both a long and short term skill shortages list. If you possess the skills on either of these lists then you will most likely be eligible for migration to New Zealand under the skilled migration program.
The long term skill shortages list includes occupations such as construction, education and engineering workers. This can feature jobs such as civil or electrical engineers, pre-primary and secondary school teachers and project builders and surveyors.

The short term skills shortages list mainly focuses on the agricultural and forestry industry, construction, health and social services and trades. Jobs in this category include a variety of types of medical practitioners, loggers and farmers, building surveyors and project managers, and motor mechanics and truck drivers.

So if you are looking for a change of occupation, why not make New Zealand your next career move? For more information on working in New Zealand and to find out about job opportunities there, call The Emigration Group on 01244 32141 (North) or 0207 118 2526 (South).
