About New Kiwis:
The New Kiwis programme links New Zealand employers with skilled and qualified migrants living in New Zealand, or who are in the process of emigrating, through the Chamber network of 22,000 businesses.
A very high percentage of vacancies are not advertised in conventional ways in this country and are filled through various forms of networking. Migrants arrive with few or no networks and this is a way of introducing them to businesses that belong to the New Zealand Chambers of Commerce. The New Kiwis initiative (www.newkiwis.co.nz) is divided into two sections: New Kiwis Local and New Kiwis Global. Local features migrants living in New Zealand searching for employment while Global houses job seekers living offshore who are interested in and may already be in the process of emigrating to New Zealand.
The New Kiwis website is an Immigration New Zealand joint initiative which candidates and employers can utilise at no cost.
