New Kiwis Programme milestone

The New Kiwis website and New Kiwis Career Success work search programme, which are run by the Auckland Chamber of Commerce, have been achieving remarkable success.

As at 30 April in the financial year ending 30 June, the Chamber’s migrant employment services had assisted in the employment of just over 1,000 migrants, primarily in the Auckland region, but also throughout New Zealand.

While a buoyant job market undoubtedly helped, breaking the 1000-migrants-employed mark in ten months is a new record for the Chamber.

Funded by the  Settlement Unit of Immigration NZ, the New Kiwis programme assists the employment outcomes for partners of skilled migrants and for international student graduates with qualifications at Level 7 and above.
