Default Re: IELTS needed ?

For the principal applicant (the person making the application) the minimum standard of English is an International English Language Testing Systems (IELTS) certificate, with an overall band score of 6.5 or better in the General or Academic modules. The certificate must be less than two years old.

However, you may not have to take the IELTS test, if you can show us that you:
have a recognised qualification from a course taught entirely in English
have ongoing skilled employment in New Zealand, and have been in the job for at least the last 12 months
have other evidence that you are competent in English - we will consider the evidence that you provide.
If you were born in the UK or an English speaking country then you will not have to sit IELTS. Though NZIS do reserve the right to request one.
From the above, it seems that a job offer is not sufficient.

Is this for an application under the SMC?

It's not clear where the OP is currently living or was born, we get a lot of posters from the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East.
You are correct if the OP was born in the UK or had qualifications that were taught entirely in English.
