Are you an employer in Canterbury seeking staff for roles that cannot be filled by New Zealanders? If you have satisfied the labour market tests and you’re interested in adding international talent to your team, come and talk to us. SkillsConnect Canterbury is funded by Immigration New Zealand and is designed to assist employers with connecting skilled newly-settled migrants with employers like you. Our job-seeking migrants all have the right to work in New Zealand, have been given assistance with understanding Kiwi work communication and culture, and are already settled into the region. Contact us to have a chat about your needs.
Are you already an employer of migrants in Canterbury? SkillsConnect Canterbury provides employers of migrants with the advice, information and support they need to successfully integrate their new migrant staff into the Kiwi workplace. We can meet with you to discuss any challenges with cultural differences, and offer free in-house workshops to both Kiwi and migrant staff on settlement and intercultural communication. Contact usto see how we can help you provide a positive, productive workplace for everyone in your organisation.
Our employer services are fully funded by Immigration New Zealand and are offered at no cost to the employer and the migrant. These services are available to all Canterbury businesses (both members and non-members of The Chamber) as part of the Regional Newcomers Skills Matching and Job Assistance Programme.
