At the moment, IT-specialties are on the list of popular specialties in New Zealand. The directions are very diverse: programming and application development, 3D design, technical support, networks and system administration, business analytics, etc. Actually, areas of Internet marketing and project management are gaining momentum. It is necessary to have a bachelor’s degree and 3 years of work experience after receiving a diploma in order to satisfy the requirements of the lists in most areas.

Being on the list means that you get a work visa and if you have an invitation to work, your potential employer will not have to prove to Immigration New Zealand that he did not find anyone suitable in the local labour market. This somewhat simplifies the situation, since not many employers want to do this.

Nevertheless, one must understand that without the experience of working in New Zealand, getting a job is not so easy. You need good English and recommendations. Participation in international projects and work experience in foreign companies will undoubtedly help you with your job placement.

Finding a job remotely is extremely difficult, employers want to see people in person, and most of them would like you to already have a working visa on hand. So, there are two options, in which you could increase your chances of finding a job:


You can attend language courses to bring your English up to the required level, and in parallel you can look for work in the specialty. If you find it, you can get a working visa, our licensed immigration adviser will be happy to help with this.

If you cannot find a job, there is a plan B – professional training during the year. At the time of training, you will have the right to work-in-training, the opportunity to improve your skills, get practice, make acquaintances and improve your professional language. In addition, at the time of obtaining a visa for study on a professional program, you can bring family: in some cases the student’s partner has the right to a work visa, and school-age children can study at public schools for free. To do this, you just need to choose the right training program.

Upon finishing such a program, you automatically receive a working visa. The family also extends their visas. Having a visa and a local diploma on hand, finding a job will be much easier.
