Talent Attraction and Immigration – What you need to know

Now that borders have reopened, attracting talent to fill open vacancies in the Bay of Plenty is a hot topic.
A recent EMA survey noted 38% of employers had been advertising vacancies for over 6 months.
International talent attraction could be an option to addressing these significant skills shortages.

But, between business accreditation, job checks, legislation changes and compliance, immigration can be a minefield for employers to navigate.

If you are thinking about recruiting from overseas now, or in the next 12 months, this event is for you.

Join us for an expert-led session that will take you through exactly what you need to know as an employer about the new accredited employer work visa.

Hosted by Priority One, join Brendon Gardner from Immigration NZ, Joanna Hall, the EMA’s Senior Policy Analyst for Immigration, and Lauren Qiu, Principal of Stay Legal, a local specialist immigration law firm. Together we’ll cover off on the practical things you need to know to successfully recruit from overseas, including:

  • Everything you need to know about how to recruit talent from offshore
  • The Government’s review of Immigration; the Accredited Employer Work Visa (AEWV); Green lists – what’s important for employers to know
  • Changes the EMA are advocating for on behalf of employers
  • The employer accreditation process, employer responsibilities, job checks and compliance

A practical toolkit to take away and use in your business
