New Zealand urgently needs skilled British workers to fill the vacant positions in its workforce. The New Zealand Ministry of Labor recently released startling statistics. Within 10 weeks of the announcement, only 54% of New Zealand job vacancies were filled.
Occupations with a severe shortage of skilled workers in New Zealand can be found in the Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL). If you are bored with the current situation, immigrants to this country now have very good opportunities.
Like Australia, Canada, and the UK, potential immigrants applying to live in New Zealand must pass the points system to qualify. Points will be awarded to qualified or experienced candidates who meet LTSSL specifications and who have qualified work experience in a specific industry.
Right now New Zealand must have some very good opportunities. The country’s workforce has grown significantly in recent years and will continue to increase in the years to come. The current workforce cannot keep up with the strong growth in demand for skilled workers whose labor shortages have reached record levels.
In September 2010, the LTSSL was revised to help the country address 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 can help you find a suitable job in New Zealand and advise you on the main obstacles to mobility.
