Businesses like yours have already met the New Zealand skills shortage head-on by working with us. Here’s what some of them have to say:

Analysts for Wellington

“In March 2019, Working In helped the New Zealand Treasury to deliver a targeted campaign to expand its talent pipeline. Working In’s unparalleled experience of the UK market and successful organisation of Interview Expos helped attract a huge number of applications and quality candidates for interview.”

IT Talent Pool

“ A combination of ongoing skill shortages and a need for highly specialised IT professionals meant we have needed to come up with new ways to find that elusive talent.

For us, with the help of working in, it meant “taking Theta to the people” to meet a potentially untapped UK market. We knew attending the working in event might not necessarily solve our short term pain, but it would help in the long run. As it happens, the trip has already paid off – we have hired two people and have a talent pool of great candidates we can call on for future vacancies.”

Electricians From The UK

“ Clarksons were assisted by Working In to recruit Electricians and Fuel Technicians from the UK in 2018. Working In made the whole process very easy – from excellent candidates right through to their guidance with the work visa process. We had great success and now have some new valuable team members from the UK.” have a talent pool of great candidates we can call on for future vacancies.”

Building NZ’s Infrastructure

“ In November 2018 Downer New Zealand worked with Working In to attract people from South Africa and the UK. The Working In team arranged over 180 interviews and managed all the on the ground operations in both countries including looking after the interviewing teams that travelled. The good quality work and attention to detail has led to good hiring outcomes so far.”

Teachers For New Zealand

“ We recently completed two important campaigns with Working In to source suitable candidates to come and teach in New Zealand. Targets for each of the campaigns were reached and, within a week or two of the final campaign closing, several candidates had been sent through to our schools. We’re delighted with the final results and we look forward to working with the team at Working In again.”

Education Personnel

Sourcing Healthcare Professionals

“Over the last year (2018-19) we engaged Working In to source healthcare professionals for our DHB including doctors (RMOs), specialist nurses and allied health workers.

We travelled to the UK three times for face to face interviews. This high contact approach has resulted in excellent hiring success – helping to fill some vital shortages in our local area.”
