New Zealand urgently needs skilled British workers to fill the vacancies in its labor force. The New Zealand Department of Labor recently released some surprising statistics. Within 10 weeks of the announcement, only 54% of New Zealand job advertisements were filled.
Occupations with a severe shortage of skilled workers in New Zealand can be found in the long-term skills shortage list (LTSSL). If you are bored with the current situation, immigrants in this country now have some very good opportunities.
Similar to Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom, potential immigrants applying to live in New Zealand must pass the points system to qualify. Points will be awarded to qualified or experienced applicants who meet LTSSL specifications and have qualified work experience in a specific industry.
At present, New Zealand must have some very good opportunities. The country’s workforce has grown significantly in the past few years and will continue to grow in the coming years. The current labor force cannot keep up with the strong growth in demand for skilled workers whose labor shortage has reached record levels.
In September 2010, LTSSL was revised to help the country fill the severe shortage of skilled workers in various industries and occupations.
If you are seriously considering immigrating to New Zealand, you can contact a qualified and licensed migration agent. They will be able to help you find a suitable job in New Zealand and advise you on major mobility barriers.
