New Kiwis Recruitment Solutions

New Kiwis is a nation-wide free web based recruitment service that connects highly skilled migrants living in New Zealand eligible to work here with employers throughout New Zealand. Employers can post job vacancies and/or search for suitable candidates online. This initiative is funded by the Department of Labour and has been running for 9 years. We have successfully transitioned more than 3000 migrants into meaningful employment through this initiative.

Skilled Migrant Work Experience Programme

Candidates are migrants with professional skills and qualifications. Under this programme candidates are provided with advice on their job search strategy and interview skills training. All candidates are seeking full time paid employment, but are also available to potential employers for between 1 – 8 weeks work experience, at no cost or obligation. This may be a pathway to a job offer being made or a specific project that the candidate can then add to their CV, making them more marketable, as well as providing a local referee.
