Default Quickest way to start work

Hi,
New here, so go easy,
Quick question regarding work visa V Skilled migrant visa.

I am currently in NZ on a holiday visa, was visiting friends over christmas, when I got offered a position through a friend of a friend etc. Prior to the holiday, I was in Oz on a WHV.

I lived in NZ before for 11 months (on whv), and always thought I would come back at some stage.

Long term, my plan is to apply for PR, but just wondering about short term atm.

Will a work permit/visa allow me to start work quicker than a skilled migrant visa?
Any idea what the processing times are like for a Work visa?

Thanks

Yes. a temp work permit will be the quicker really.

Is your occupation/job on the shortage list? If not, please be aware that the person employing you will have to show that there is no NZ PR or citizen that could take or do that work. That's an extra form for the employer to fill in and will slow the visa process down whilst they check that out.
