Job search assistance service will:

  • Advise on any necessary changes to your CV, to suitably meet the NZ market and make those changes where necessary.
  • Research the current employment market relevant to your qualifications, skills and experience. This includes a report with feedback and potential contacts here in NZ.
  • Identify any job opportunities or potential employers relevant to you.
  • Introduce you to possible employers and be a local ‘voice’ for you when applying for roles or introductions are being made.
  • Follow up with prospective employers and opportunities and provide feedback and insights from this process.

Quick Tip

Have your qualification assessed to ensure it meets NZ standards

You can do this online or Woburn International can do it for you as part of the Job Search Process.

Should the applications or introductions we make on your behalf lead to any initial conversations or interviews with you in person or by phone, we are able provide an additional service that includes:
  • Securing and coordinating appointments for you, by phone, Skype or in person (because it is unlikely you would secure a position unless the employer meets you).
  • Preparing you for your interviews.
  • Managing the immigration process for you when you secure appropriate employment.
