Southland Skills Placement Programme

Connecting newcomers to Southland with employment opportunities

Through the Skills Placement Programme, we can connect skilled migrants, and their spouses, with employment information and opportunities across the Southland region.

With support from Immigration New Zealand, we facilitate the connection between skilled newcomers and Southland employers who are seeking new talent and skills for their workplace.

Our free service helps skilled migrants to better understand the Southland workplace and recruiting processes, while also supporting Southland businesses to plan their recruitment of skilled migrants and address any cultural challenges they may have in the workplace.
