In the face of local staff shortages, New Zealand businesses are turning their gaze overseas to find the talent they need to thrive. The “Essential Guide Before Going Offshore for Staff,” a webinar presentation by Woburn International and the Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce, is designed to guide businesses through this process.

Why Consider Overseas Staffing in New Zealand?

The New Zealand job market is evolving, and businesses are discovering the benefits of expanding their talent pool internationally. Here’s why you should contemplate overseas recruitment:

1. Global Reputation for Quality Candidates: New Zealand has garnered a global reputation for attracting high-quality talent. The country’s strong education system, diverse workforce, and commitment to innovation have made it a sought-after destination for skilled professionals.

3. Tackling Domestic Challenges: The domestic job market in New Zealand is not without its challenges. Since Covid, New Zealand has seen a lower level of migration.
