About NZ Careers

New Zealand Careers Limited (NZC) was established in 2012 to help employers find suitable candidates for the Canterbury Rebuild in the wake of the Christchurch earthquake. Since its conception, it has been instrumental in the placement of skilled migrant workers in positions that could not be fulfilled by the local workforce alone. It has naturally expanded to other sectors such as farming and health where vacancies have been difficult to fill. NZC is committed to delivering high standards of work and works closely with her clients to ensure their needs and desires are met. NZC prides itself in ensuring they recruit the best candidates for your business so that the work delivered is of the highest quality standard.

NZC works closely with FernLaw to make sure that applications for overseas candidates are compliant with New Zealand Labour Law and immigration.
