HGV Drivers in New Zealand Urgently Required - Working Holiday Visa Applicants

It's no secret - New Zealand is a beautiful place. As well as breath-taking scenery, we have great people and a great culture, so it's no wonder that it's consistently ranked as one of the best places to live and work in the world.

New Zealand is in the middle of a trade and construction boom, and we find ourselves struggling to find workers across all trades to meet the demand. New Zealand needs skilled workers across a number of sectors, so even if you are not a HGV Driver, don’t hesitate to visit online at http://skillshortages.immigration.govt.nz/ and see if you have skills to offer.

It can be a daunting task to start life in a new country, but we have been bringing people into NZ for the last 7 years, and we can help in every aspect of relocating. New Zealand Skills In Demand’s clients also have consultants who have also made the move to NZ from overseas, and we have an excellent support network to help make the process as seamless as possible.

We require HGV Drivers from all backgrounds that have their Working Holiday Visa. For more information on whether you qualify for a Working Holiday Visa click here.
