EMPLOYER ASSISTANCE

Are you a Kiwi employer wanting to hire a migrant and the very thought of going through Immigration New Zealand instructions and policies seems daunting? You need not look further, as our team of expert Licensed Immigration Advisers will get it all sorted for you by acting on your behalf.

We at Zealand Immigration have worked with employers from different sectors in NZ such as IT, hospitality, dairy farming, construction, healthcare, retail, and much more. Our advisers understand Immigration New Zealand perspectives on different sectors and work accordingly. We also know that every business is different and so are its needs when it comes to hiring migrant workers.

Here’s a list of services that we offer:

Individual assistance to the applicant – Whether it’s your current employee or one that you are looking to hire, we can assist them and their family members in preparing visa applications right from start to finish. We spot and fix issues with applications before they go to INZ and will ensure to resolve any problems that may arise. Our forté is the hard work that we put into representing our clients to INZ and making appeals if needed.

Employer Accreditation – If you are an employer who is constantly in need of hiring migrant workers because of shortages in the local market, you might be able to streamline the process and make it even smoother. You can apply to INZ to become an accredited employer, which will give you a number of benefits such as:

  • You won’t need to do a labour market test to check if any New Zealanders are available to do the work, thus saving time and money
  • Your employees’ applications will be prioritised by INZ
  • You can provide support for a Work to Residence visa which is otherwise not available through other employers, thus gaining and retaining the right talent
  • Less paperwork means your HR personnel end up saving a lot of time

We can help you to understand how this tool can be used to your advantage and if you are eligible to apply for accreditation we can assist you in doing so, as this can be a cumbersome process.

Educating employers on ever-changing INZ policies – Since our team is actively engaged in learning and development, we keep abreast of any proposed and actual changes to INZ policies and ensure that this is passed on to employers at the right time. When you are on board with us, we keep you constantly updated on any INZ issues that might impact your business. From educating you about employers’ obligations in hiring migrant workers to assisting you on hiring and continuing with migrant employees, we’ve got you covered.
We provide employer assistance services to employers across NZ and would love to have you on board. Get in touch with us to discuss your organisation’s needs and we’ll work with INZ while you focus on your business.
