Does your partner have any relevent qualiications in chefing or hospitality? NZ desperate for chefs and you could get a job offer easily, but think you would need relevent qualifications if you do not have experience.

hi nelson pom
thanks for reply...my partner has the required qualifications as a chef ( 706 (1+2) nvq) and some experience.at present though just doing part time as a cook/ counter assistant to work around picking son up from school. she has worked as a chef in the past but maybe 18 months.i think finding a job would be easy as you state but from some of the threads i read nz immi seem strict maybe please reply thanks

I would contact immigration as you are supposed to have 5 years experience but as she is qualified and NZ is desperately short of chefs you may find them approachable.
