Essential Skills in Demand List review

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) has completed its annual review of two of the Essential Skills in Demand (ESID) Lists – the Long Term Skill Shortage List (LTSSL) and the Immediate Skill Shortage List (ISSL).

The LTSSL identifies occupations that have an absolute (sustained and ongoing) shortage of skilled workers both globally and throughout New Zealand.  Migrants who gain employment in one of these occupations may be granted a LTSSL Work to Residence or an Essential Skills work visa. Migrants applying for residence under the Skilled Migrant Category may gain bonus points towards their application if they have an offer of employment or work experience in an area of absolute skill shortage identified on the LTSSL.

The outcomes of the review of the LTSSL are to:

Remove five occupations

Anaesthetist
Forest Scientist
Pathologist
Petroleum Engineer
Renal Medicine Specialist

Retain two occupations that were included in the review

Chemical Engineer
Materials Engineer

Immediate Skill Shortage List

The ISSL identifies occupations that have an immediate shortage of skilled workers either throughout New Zealand or in certain regions. Migrants wishing to work in occupations on the ISSL may be granted work visas under Essential Skills instructions if they meet the specified qualifications and/or experience requirements. 

The outcomes of the review of the ISSL are to:

Add 12 occupations

Accountant (General) (a)
Carpenter (b)
Carpenter and Joiner (b)
Fibrous Plasterer (b)
Joiner (b)
Midwife (b)
Motor Mechanic (General) (b)
Panelbeater (b)
Roof Plumber (c)
Roof Tiler (c)
Solid Plasterer (b)
Vehicle Painter (b)

(a) only for the Auckland/Upper North Island, Wellington and Canterbury/Upper South Island regions
(b) for all regions of New Zealand
(c) only for the Auckland/Upper North Island, Waikato/Bay of Plenty, Canterbury/Upper South Island and Otago/Southland regions

Remove five occupations

Dental Technician
Dentist
Medical Laboratory Technician (Phlebotomy and Histology Technicians)
Pharmacy Technician
Poultry Farmer

Retain five occupations that were included in the review

Cardiologist
Ophthalmologist
Metal Casting Trades Worker (Foundry Moulder)
Registered Nurse (Aged Care)
Resident Medical Officer

This applies directly to the Skilled Migrant Category, and if your occupation has been removed it does not necessarily mean that migrants cannot come to New Zealand. Other immigration options are available for employers and prospective migrants, such as the Essential Skills Work Visa.

Electricians needed in New Zealand - permanent and working holiday visa position

Are you interested in a move to New Zealand?

NZ Skills in Demand is a NZ and UK based company. They help set up job interviews for people like you and help you through the process of getting out to New Zealand.  

They work with all trades but are finding that there is huge demand for Electricians.

There have been some challenging regulations which make it difficult to place an overseas worker into a role where they require supervision to work on the Limited Certificate.

At this point in time the only candidates NZ Skills In Demand are able to help are those who have managed to complete their full registration in New Zealand OR those who are looking to come to the United Kingdom to complete full registration course in London (details can be seen here - http://gbconstructiontraining.com/ and the course costs £1500.)

If you can make the UK course option work, please let Rachel Beattie at NZ Skills in Demand know as they are able to line up interviews with employers who will make you a job offer (subject to a successful interview) which is conditional upon you passing your UK coursework. This gives people the confidence to then commit the time and money to passing the course, knowing they have a job guaranteed at the end of it.

If the course is not realistic, in the meantime they suggest (if you haven’t already) you complete the first step in the process of gaining NZ registration, which is having your skills and experience assessed by the EWRB. You can start that process by reading information here - and starting the application process hereThis process must be done even if you are doing the course in London. You will need to deal directly with the EWRB in New Zealand for this process.

If you are heading out to New Zealand on a Working Holiday Visa then they are able to help with your job search as well. The above course would be completely optional for you.

Please get in touch with Rachel if you are keen to make the move to New Zealand in 2018.

65,000 new Building and Construction workers needed in NZ over next 5 years

There is a high level of demand for qualified builders and construction workers to emigrate to New Zealand, to deliver the country's £66.9bn infrastructure and housing programme.

The Building and Construction Industry Training Organisation (BCITO) has stated that New Zealand is suffering from such a huge skills shortage that the country is in need of 65,000 new workers over the next five years to meet growth and replace people who lave. 

The UK construction industry has seen a recent downturn, that coupled with the uncertainty of Brexit and the promise of a great lifestyle has already seen those with key skills make the move to New Zealand.

Many local employers are working with the NZ government and local bodies to create attractive job packages that include exciting “experiences”, such as fishing, surfing and sailing.

Craig West of engineering company Downer, said: “Our construction sector is very competitive and this kind of inter-industry co-operation has never happened before but the need for staff requires us to take an all-of-industry approach.

“We’ve united to solve a big problem for all of us and we’ve come to the UK because that is where some of the best global construction talent is.”

Immigration minister Michael Woodhouse said: "These changes are designed to strike the right balance ... and encourage employers to take on more Kiwis and invest in the training to upskill them."

We work with NZ recruitment specialists New Zealand Skills in Demand to assist skilled migrants to find jobs and visas for New Zealand. The current skills in high demand include:
