Hi prabakaran,

I don't know your field of work but the good sites for searching possible jobs in NZ are :

www.trademe.co.nz
www.seek.co.nz
www.nzherald.co.nz

There are a lot of recruiting agencies that advertise jobs but it depends about your profession which one to look at.

Hope I helped a bit. I am sure someone will come up with more info for you.

Good luck with your application and job hunting.

Cheers

Have you started applying for any jobs in New Zealand ?

If you are offered a job in NZ before you get a Visa, I understand that if you let you local NZ Embassy /Consulate branch know, they can review your application and try to speed it up (if the job is in the category you have applied under).

I have got a Skilled Work Visa without a job offer. I am going out in September so will try to get work just before or when i arrive.

Hi,
I think it depends on the field of work that you're in. I am a pharmacist and I looked for work on the district health board websites. As luck had it there was a job advertised in the hospital I wanted, so I applied direct to the hospital.

But, like I say it really depends on the sort of role that you are after. Healthcare jobs tend to get advertised on the DHB websites, rather than through agencies in my experience.
My partner is currently looking for work in the finance field and he found that no-one would really talk to him, let alone look at his CV, until he was in NZ. For his line of work it is very much through agencies as well as applying to banks direct. But he's finding it quite difficult to get work.

The websites that lida mentioned are you best starting points.

Hope this helps.

I don't understand this sentence. What does it mean please?

If you mean you want to find recruitment consultants, then the best bet really is to go through the NZ yellow pages and send a CV to all the relevant agencies.

This is my timeline,
everyone is different depending on circumstances, but think this is fairly typical.


EOI submitted (125pt) 12/06/09
EOI selected 17/06/09

ITA recieved 22/07/09
ITA submitted 02/10/09

'(I took from 22 Jul to 02 Oct to complete medicals and get all my evidence, you may be able to do this quicker)

From when ITA is submitted to CO assigned , in UK is about 3 -4 months. If during this time you get a job offer and you inform them, they may be able to prioritise your application and assign CO sooner.

CO assigned 02/02/10
At this point I just had to provide some more relatationship evidence. depending on what you sent for ITA submission, then there may be more questions at this point.

Phone Interview 08/02/10
Again, my interview was ok, but there may be other queries at this point depending on individual cases.

APPROVED 09/02/10

From this point you just need to send in passports and then go when you want to search for job if you don't have one.

you can look around at peoples signatures, as many have their timelines on, this should give you an idea.
