Answer

If you are looking to recruit a foreign national, you will need to assess the potential employee's eligibility for the visa they need.

You may need to show genuine attempts to recruit locally. This is the area where most work visa applications run into problems.  We can assist a worker to prepare and lodge work visa applications. If you need to recruit high-level skills, you might want to consider making an application to Immigration New Zealand for your business to gain accreditation status, or obtain an approval in principal to recruit people from offshore.

“I can't speak highly enough of Jenny. She got everything done in a timely manner and when my ex-husband threw a spanner in the works at the eleventh hour she got the required documentation to his lawyers and settlement back on track.” ~ Tracey
“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to John Stirling and Kathryn Wynd for their patience and understanding. We are so honored to have John and Kathryn looking after us. Whenever someone asks if I know of legal firm, I always say Turner Hopkins.” ~ Manaia
“John is very easy to talk to, he never makes you feel dumb, and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time for asking questions. He explains everything very clearly, every time. John's support staff are also very efficient and so easy to deal with. No detail is missed when dealing with them. My husband and I are fans of them all :)” ~ Jess
