Resources for your migrant staff

When people migrate to New Zealand they must learn a new culture and way of working. These resources will help them settle in and adapt to their new life.

Planning to move

We have a website that helps migrants to plan their move to New Zealand. NZ Ready assists new, and potential, migrants with the planning of their migration journey; from place of origin, through the move, to settling here.

Support in the workplace

Starting any new job is always stressful. Starting a new job in a new country where people do things differently is even harder. We explain the workplace culture and where to find help to fit in.

When working in New Zealand people have minimum employment rights. It’s important that people understand their rights, and where to get help and advice.
