New Zealand Employers assist overseas job seeker to get the job done

Aug 29,2016

New Zealand companies would not fill vacancies if they did not recruit workers from overseas, an employment agency reveals.

The government has been criticized by the Labor Party and New Zealand First after a record number of work visas more than 200,000 were issued last year, but it says they are not taking jobs that New Zealanders would fill in any other ways.

Enterprise Recruitment operations director Ian McPherson said New Zealanders have not applied for all the unskilled and semi-skilled jobs that needed filling.

His company was hiring seven out of 10 information technology workers from overseas.

He said training was becoming better aligned with what the labor market needed, but those needs could change quickly.

Mr. Carlisle said his company employed everyone who passed a trade test, along with people that arrived from overseas.

He said a lack of trained staff was slowing the success of the business, especially in Wellington and the regions, and other owners were selling up because they couldn't find new staff.
