Moving to New Zealand


Beyond Recruitment are a 100% kiwi-owned recruitment agency that loves New Zealand and are passionate about the people and organisations that make this country such a great place to live and work.

As one of the largest recruitment agencies in New Zealand we have a strong network of organisations across the public and private sectors that we’re a preferred supplier of staffing solutions to. We maintain strong relationships with all of these organisations, meaning that we always have a broad variety of vacancies available across our ten specialist business areas.

If you’re currently living overseas and seeking work in New Zealand, you should know that there are many skills that are in demand. If you’d like information on the New Zealand market or would like to find out how your skills line up with the demands of the New Zealand market, take a look at the official New Zealand skills shortage list or feel free to get in touch with us today.

If you are serious about finding a job or living in New Zealand, the first step is to find out if you are eligible to move here. Immigration New Zealand is a great resource to help you with this initially. Immigration New Zealand provides information on:

  • Visa applications.
  • Skill eligibility.
  • New Zealand employment law and work rights.
  • Life in New Zealand outside of work.

The New Zealand Now website also provides practical advice on a number of immigration related questions, including visas and citizenship, pre and post-departure checklists and help and support once you arrive in New Zealand.

Our partner migration experts, Malcolm Pacific can also help. Malcolm Pacific’s robust service offering includes:

  • A free assessment of your eligibility for migration.
  • A personal Case Manager assigned to help you with your specific situation.
  • Specialist teams in both Auckland and Wellington.
  • Licensed Advisers supported by in-house training, IT services, immigration assistants and administrators.

You can complete a free eligibility assessment, and find out more about Malcolm Pacific's services, here.

We know that moving to another country is a big change in people’s lives, not just their careers. Many of our consultants have come to New Zealand from every corner of the globe, and are well acquainted with the migration process and what it takes to get comfortable in a new country.

Here at Beyond Recruitment, we regularly help overseas candidates to not only secure work here but also to get settled into the country.

We can’t wait to help you start your journey.
