Hello! Thanks for viewing our International Recruitment page. My name is Tanya Gray. I have been working in recruitment and HR for over 10 years from our Warkworth Office. In recent years, we recognised the demand for skilled migrants and placed some focus in this area - specifically, in the area of correct process.

We have an Immigration NZ licensed Visa specialist in our office and a specialist team - including two Filipinos who have themselves experienced the process of migrating to New Zealand themselves some years ago. This gives us not only a fully integrated process, it also allows us a unique vision of how employers may optimise the recruitment of migrants and settling them quickly into life in New Zealand.

For employers, the exercise of employing migrants is very cost effective in the long run in terms of project continuance, workflow forecasting and lean management. Filipinos are fantastic employees.

We can say with confidence that if you or one of your employees is spending more than 1.5 days per average month on recruitment for skilled construction workers, we need to talk.

We would love you to contact us by email - or just give us a call during business hours on (09) 280 3977

Best regards
