Skill shortage lists are usually updated June & October time from memory. ChCh shortage list might be adjusted outside of those times.

Thanks. Yeah, I've noticed the ChCh project list has been updated recently but wondered about the other ones in particular. What would happen if you were offered a job that was skilled but currently not on the lists? Is it totally "no go"?. Thanks

With the skilled migrant category, it depends on your points.

If you have a job offer and it matches your skill set and experience, then you are in with a good shot.

Default Re: Skills lists

We were recently let down on an Australian sponsored visa. Out agent caused it to become invalidated! It was time sensitive and now there is no way back, so we're looking at NZ as a possibility. Just thought the skill had to be on the current list before you could submit an EOI. My OH may consider a trip out there to secure a job offer if it meant it didn't have to be on the list (and to get the points). It has appeared previously but is not there at the moment. Thanks x

Skilled Migrant Category is all about the points.

He may not gain any bonus points if the occupation isn't on a shortage list but with a job offer he would gain those points at least.

How many would he have with a job offer in place?
You will remember that 140 is an automatic pull from the pool.
A job offer prioritises an application .

Assuming a job offer, 135pts - ouch! Just 5pts shy - that's just our luck, lol x

Default Re: Skills lists

So what is the point if the skills list then? Sorry to sound dull but this could be very interesting ... We thought we might have to wait for his skill to appear on the list first. It seems now that a job offer could be our main focus (as it was with Oz) x

The skills shortage lists list those skills in shortage and I know that sounds obvious!
The long term list allows you to gain bonus points on your EOI and depending on what's being drawn out that fortnight may mean you get selected quicker. eg I had no job offer, 130pts but bonus pts for work experience and a degree in a shortage area. I got selected on my bonus pts . It is worth having a look at what gets selected at the draws as that will give you an idea of how it works.
The short term lists have noting to do with the EOI or residency, they are for temporary work visas only. It means that if your job is on that list then an employer can offer a job without having to prove no NZer is available.

Does that help?

With a job offer you may well be selected with less than 140pts

Default Re: Skills lists

Thank you. What does an employer have to do when making a job offer? Does the job have to meet certain criteria or as you said earlier, do they have to prove a Nz'er isn't available - how would they "prove" this? Thanks

Default Re: Skills lists

If you're applying for residency via an EOI then that doesn't apply.

To gain points on the EOI a job offer must be permanent, skilled and at least 30 hours per week. I have not seen any salary requirements for this category as there is for the WTR visa.

If you're considering a work visa and the job is not on the ISSL then an employer must have advertised in a way that does not deter NZers, hours and salary must be acceptable, must explain why they cannot train up a NZer etc etc . NZIS will also conduct a labour market test. It's not just a case of saying 'I can't find anyone'!
