Looking for where to find work in New Zealand? Take a look at high demand work

If you want to immigrate to New Zealand as a qualified immigrant, you must obtain a work visa, and to qualify for a work visa, you must have a job. Also, if you want to know where to find a job in New Zealand, you should ask two questions: “What are the current skills shortage occupations?” And “Where is New Zealand most likely to find these jobs?”

To answer the first question, the following are examples of jobs that are in high demand but cause a shortage of skills.

-Engineers (civil, structural, production, chemical, mining, and geotechnical engineering)
-Health professionals (doctors, nurses, midwives)
-IT professionals
-Construction (project managers, architects, qualified builders, trade-related professionals)
-Agriculture (scientists, agricultural workers)

If you have the appropriate qualifications in the skills shortage area, you may be allowed to enter the skilled immigration category. In this case, to be eligible for residency, you must be 55 years of age or younger, in good health, good character, and fluent in English. In addition to your employability and qualifications, Immigration New Zealand also uses a points system that takes the above criteria into account. If your resume meets these criteria, New Zealand will most likely accept your application.

In answering the second question, most of these jobs are likely to be in Auckland or Christchurch. The reason for this is that Auckland is New Zealand’s largest and fastest-growing city, while Christchurch, the second-largest city, suffered a devastating earthquake in 2011. Damage is estimated to require $ 40 billion to rebuild. . In fact, some people say that this is one of the costliest earthquakes in the world, and it is estimated that it will take 20 years to complete this work.
