The Employer Accreditation programme in New Zealand is a strategic tool designed to help businesses recruit and retain international talent. With VisaAide's professional assistance, you can streamline your path to accreditation, opening the doors to migrant workers whether they're based in New Zealand or overseas. 

Employer Accreditation grants your business an abundance of benefits, including a more efficient visa application process, ensuring you can attract and secure high-quality, competent workers when you need them most.

This programme forms a part of an employer-led initiative, designed to prioritise jobs for New Zealanders while facilitating the seamless hiring of skilled migrant workers in fields experiencing skill or labour shortages, such as construction and civil engineering.

Understanding the impact of international talent

Employing talent from across the globe can be instrumental for the success of businesses large and small. Diversity in skills, perspectives, and experiences empowers organisations to innovate, overcome challenges and remain competitive in a global market.

However, administrative hurdles and evolving immigration laws present significant challenges. VisaAide's approach is to not just manage these complexities, but to turn them into advantages for your company.

The services provided include strategic planning that aligns immigration with human resource strategies, case management for your specific immigration needs, and ongoing support for the life of the visa process.

Strategic workforce planning

Workforce planning is a critical aspect of organisational strategy. Aligning business goals with human capital strategy involves predicting workforce needs, identifying the right people for the job, and ensuring that they can work in your country.

VisaAide understands that immigration is not just about ticking a few boxes. It’s about ensuring that international hires can integrate seamlessly into your organisation. VisaAide’s workforce planning service assists with visa and immigration needs analysis, risk management, and the development of an internal immigration policy.

Understanding your accreditation options

There are four main types of employer accreditation that you can apply for depending on the size of your business and the volume of migrant workers you seek.
