NEW ZEALAND – LAND OF OPPORTUNITIES FOR MIGRANTS
New Zealand, an island nation nestled in the Pacific Ocean is a land of opportunities. This country welcomes people from all over the world to boost its economy. Thus making it a dream destination to work at.
Getting a work visa is a very important thing. To get a visa we need to have a proper job offer in hand. The biggest advantage that migrants have is their skill sets. Whenever there is a job vacancy, the first thing that is done is to look within the country whether that requirement can be fulfilled. If from within there is no suitable applicant that is when skilled people from outside the country are given a chance.
The sectors that thrive with a migrant workforce are Medicine, Education, Engineering, IT, Tourism and Hospitality etc. Every year we can see a lot of advertisements online regarding vacancies in New Zealand especially in the fields of Medicine, Education and Tourism and Hospitality. Many people around the world apply for these jobs and finally, also end up working in New Zealand. This is not only the case with India, China, Singapore etc but also the case with job seekers from other parts of the world.
Tourism and Hospitality
The tourism and hospitality industry is one sector that has experienced an influx of migrant population. This is because New Zealand being a tourist destination is visited a lot in both summer and winter. This provides opportunities like having a restaurant that serves cuisines from all over the world or being a tourist guide, scuba diving instructor, skiing instructor etc.
The Education industry too has seen a growth in the demand for teachers as there is more demand for subject-specific teachers. Most of the teachers come from the UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada etc. They are expected to be well versed in both written and spoken English. They also need to go through a test to prove their competency in English.
These are just two sectors but the other sectors too have an equal contribution from migrants, thus giving them a chance to grow and also enhance their skills.
