Latest updates to the Essential Skills in Demand Lists – some exciting additions!

The New Zealand government recognises that there is a significant shortage of skilled labour in a variety of occupation industries in New Zealand. Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has three “Essential Skills in Demand” lists, which make it easier for employees to recruit and employ non-New Zealand citizens and residents for roles which are included on those lists.

INZ has just released updates to the Essential Skills in Demand Lists (ESID), which includes the replacement of the Intermediate Skills Shortage List with a new one called the Regional Skill Shortage List. Where an occupation is on one of the ESIDs, it is an acknowledgement that it is difficult to find suitable New Zealanders to fill those role in those occupations, and therefore the process of recruiting migrant workers has been simplified.

Here is a brief outline of each of the lists, with an explanation of what occupations have been added to or amended on them:

 

Long Term Skills Shortage List (LTSSL):

The LTSSL is a list of skilled occupation that are in sustained shortage throughout New Zealand. Occupations included in the list include occupation in engineering, ICT, health and social services and electricians.

The outcome of the latest review has been to add ‘Aged Care Registered Nurse’ to the LTSSL, and amend and extend the “Construction Project Manager” listing.

 

Regional Skills Shortage List (RSSL):

The Regional Skills Shortage List will replace the Intermediate Skills Shortage List, and provides a list of various occupations where there is a skill shortage in a particular regions. The RSSL is divided into 15 regions identified as having an immediate shortage of skilled workers in particular occupations. Early Childhood Teacher, Primary School Teacher and Secondary School Teacher have been added to the RSSL for all regions – great news for people wishing to gain employment as teachers in New Zealand!

 

Construction and Infrastructure Skill Shortage List (CISSL):

The CISSL is divided into the same 15 regions as the RSSL, and contains construction-related occupations which are in immediate, short-term shortage across the country. The occupation of Building Associate has been added to the list, and Plumber has now been added to all the listed regions.

 

The proposed changes will be implemented on 27 May, and come at a time when INZ is facing increasing criticism over extensive delays in visa processing times, which is causing problems for many visa applicants and their employers.

If you believe any of this will affect you and your application, please get in touch with one of our Licensed Immigration Advisers in either the UK or NZ office:

Increase to minimum income level required to support dependent children in New Zealand

Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has released its latest amendment circular containing updates to the current immigration policy.

 The latest update includes the following changes:

  • The minimum income required for Essential Skills work visa holders to support visitor visa applications for their dependent children has been increased to $43,322.76 per annum. Essential Skills work visa holders who earn less than that will not be able to support to support visitor visa applications for their dependent children.

  • Following the major changes to post-study work visas that were implemented last year, the Pathway Student visa pilot has been extended to 24 November 2019.

  • The List of Qualifications Exempt From Assessment (LQEA) has been updated. The list of qualifications recognised by INZ has been expanded to include a large number of newly-recognised qualifications from countries including Canada, Hungary, Sweden and Poland.

  •  Updating the New Zealand Residence Programme planning range to 50,000 to 60,000 from 1 July 2018 to 31 December 2019. Immigration remains a hot political issue. It is clear that the Minister of Immigration is actively working to implement changes across the board, which appears to include the  targeted reduction of the total number of Skilled Migrant category residence visa approvals.

NZ Job Adverts continue to rise 1.2 per cent in March 2019

The latest report from Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment showed that online advertisements increased by 1.2 per cent in the March 2019 quarter, slightly lower than the December 2018 quarter's 1.4 per cent increase. Here are the report highlights:

  • Among the nine industry groups, the Primary sector had strong growth, especially in the Manawatu-Whanganui and Taranaki, and Otago-Southland regions. The IT industries grew strongly in Nelson/Tasman/Marlborough/West Coast, Otago-Southland, and Wellington.

  • The strongest percentage increase in online advertising over the quarter came from the Labourers occupational group in most regions. The next highest increase was in the Community and Personal Services occupational group, which grew the most in Gisborne/Hawke's Bay, and the Bay of Plenty regions.

  • Over the year, the largest increases in online advertisements by broad skill level groupings were for highly-skilled and skilled jobs.

  • Provincial New Zealand and the Wellington region led the growth in job advertisements over the quarter. However, given the size of Auckland, and Wellington they are amongst the top three regions for the number ofadvertisements during the quarter. When taking into account the relative size of regions, Wellington, Otago-Southland, and Auckland had the greatest growth. Over the year, Wellington, Auckland, and Otago-Southland were the main contributors to the overall increase.
