Get access to international talent

International students bring a wealth of knowledge, unique and diverse perspectives, and broad skillsets to a workplace. Students participating in the Work Ready Programme are well educated, driven and excited about their future in New Zealand.

We have a number of events and work placements which enable New Zealand Employers to meet international students. If you would like to take part in any of these events, please contact us.

Here’s what a Dunedin employer, who hired an international candidate, has to say:

“We have benefited hugely from the global experience and perspective that Pramuk contributes. In particular, his skills gained from working in larger multinational businesses, and his area of study, have massively improved our ability to execute on projects.” Chris Wright, ADInstruments.
