The recruitment company specialises in permanent staffing and long-term contracts in a diverse array of industries, covering blue collar and white collar roles at all levels. As well as recruiting nationally, RecruitNZ can also bring skilled migrants to New Zealand.

International recruitment

Sourcing overseas talent has become a significant part of our recruitment company, and we have a specialist division devoted to this. Forward-thinking employers are confronted with the challenge of on-going skills shortages in New Zealand, and the recruitment of migrant workers presents a positive solution. Cost-benefit analyses reveal that recruiting migrant workers using our recruitment specialists is often an economic and viable option.

Working with our People Inc partners, we are able to provide a complete and seamless international recruitment service. We can manage every step, from employer accreditation, to recruitment and HR documentation, to visa and immigration services via the Accredited Employer Work Visa. Clients are designated a single point of contact to for the entire overseas recruitment project, ensuring an easy and straightforward experience.

"I first met the RecruitNZ team as a candidate looking for a new job. They were friendly, very communicative, going into detail as to the benefits of working at the business along with their values and culture. I found the process thorough and helpful. Now that I work in the business, I am now using RecruitNZ to recruit my new team members. I am confident that they will go the extra mile during the recruitment process and will find the best people for us."

"The team at RecruitNZ have been working with us to bring immigrant construction workers to NZ. They have handled the recruitment process from initial screening to interviewing to liaising with various governments. Their consultants are invaluable to our business. Their local knowledge of the Filipino employment market and government processes is instrumental to ensuring a smooth, efficient recruitment process. They know exactly what we are looking for in an employee and deliver every time."


Katie Geck


"We have been working with Recruit NZ for over 4 years now. 

The team is great to work with and we know that they will consistently find the right fit of candidates for our company.

I really appreciate the way they follow up after the new recruit has started to see that both the employer and employee are satisfied.

We also use their HR Consulting division which is invaluable both for us as business owners and the staff.”
