Securing employment in New Zealand

New Zealand’s agricultural industry needs hardworking, skilled farmworkers. At The Regions, we work with Filipino migrants who have experience working in the industry and would like to immigrate to New Zealand. Our team will shortlist Filipino farmworkers who are hardworking and reliable and arrange interviews with farmers in New Zealand to secure employment.

We work with farmers in both the North and South Island and on a variety of different sized-farms. But the key to successful recruitment is finding the right match between job seeker and employer. At The Regions, we have a team of key account managers who work with New Zealand farmers to understand their employment needs. Our team then look for experienced farmworkers to find the right fit.

Immigration

Once our key account managers have secured you employment in New Zealand, our team of immigration lawyers will help you through the immigration process. As a skilled worker coming into New Zealand you will be required to have a work visa. Our team can help you with the paperwork you need to apply for this visa and ensure you have everything you need to start a better life in New Zealand.

We will also help to arrange your flights to New Zealand. Upon arrival you will be welcomed by one of our friendly support team and inducted into the New Zealand way of life, with bank accounts, mobile phones and a guide to living in New Zealand.

Pastoral Care

After your induction with our friendly team, you will be taken to your new place of employment. Our key account managers work closely with farmers who will have provided accommodation and some basic necessities to make your new home as welcoming as possible.
