Default NZ query

Hi everyone,
well as i said in an earlier post my partner and i want to move to nz and we were thinking of using a consultant. However we have now just received their fees/costs including a 10% of your 1st years wages if they help you secure a job. Needless to say this is a bit of a shock. The question i'm hoping you all can answer is how difficult is it to apply without a consultant? or is it worth the money for less hassle?

Thanks for your help

Paul

ps. any teachers had problems registering?

I found it easy enough to apply for PR alone; the forms are not complicated and NZIS
are super efficient. No comment on the job front.

Good luck! Winnie xx

I always considered that people using consultants to immigrate to NZ do not deserve
the privilege to be accepted as NZers Do you score the pass mark? Apply yourself!
The difference is just a few hours of paper work (and quite a few thousands..)!! And
keep in mind that the NZ Immigration officer is there to assist you in the process,
not to make your life more difficult!

Cheers (and cheerup) and good luck!

Have you looked on www.teachnz.govt.nz it has all the info on there for teachers - employment, pay, registration details etc.

No I do not think you need an agent the forms are straight forward.
My wife registered to teach in nz and had her skills assesed very easily and quickly.

we had a friend who went out last december which is not a good time to look for jobs, she simply visited schools with her cv she actually got a promotion to head of science.

It would appear secondary school teachers are in more demand than primary.

cheers steve

I personally found it very easy to fill the forms in myself. Mind you
- I haven't been accepted yet! I'm off to London tomorrow to take my forms to NZIS -
so I'll post then to let people know how it went!

As for teachers - once we get PR (see - I'm being optimistic!) my husband intends to
register as a teacher, so again - I'll post the details if and when.

Good luck! Nicki.

It sounds very unusual for a consultant to charge the job seeker. Normally the fee
for someone acting as a recruitment agent is paid by the employer.

In my opinion, anyone with a reasonable level of education (a necessity for skilled
migration) and from an English speaking country should be more than capable of doing
their own application for a country like NZ, unless there are special reasons. A good
consultant can help in terms of peace of mind and covering all bases, although a bad
one can be worse than useless.

Christian, I take your point on that however what are you supposed to do when you ask
NZIS for information and are told that they can't answer the question?? OK so if you
have a straightforward case then fair enough you'd be silly to spend thousands (I
assume) as it *is* very easy. Except in some circumstances where basic information
simply is not available and no-one including NZIS can answer a query. I'd consider
using a business consultant not to avoid taking hours on my application, but to get
it right and not make a stuff up.

Fair enough.. But make sure you maximise your benefites/cost ration.. It is a pitty
you have to go into the grey area, I always admired NZIS for their strugle to
eliminate it, although not always succesful.. Good luck!

Cristian Croitoru

PS It would be nice if, at the end of your endevour, you will make a formal
complain/report to NZIS highlighting your problems. They will be able to look into
it and save time and money for other people. "Pat" <[email protected]> :
