WHAT ABOUT HEALTHCARE? DO I NEED HEALTH INSURANCE?
There are a number of Health Insurance providers in NZ however we also encourage you to get medical insurance from
your home country. In addition to this New Zealand has a public health system that is low cost and, in some instances, free. Some work visa holders’ benefit from New Zealand government subsidies. Further information can be found at https://www.newzealandnow.govt.nz/living-in-nz/healthcare
ARE THERE FELLOW EX-PATS THAT I CAN CONNECT TO?
We are happy to introduce you to fellow sponsored workers directly or remotely, and this has proved to very valuable in
the settlement process. Simply let us know if you would like us to make the introductions and we’ll take care of the rest!
WHERE WILL I BE WORKING?
We are fortunate at Tradestaff to have over 5000 clients nationwide. However any work must be within the regional boundaries stipulated on your offer of employment, as usually your visa will have a region specified on it. Although we always endeavour to keep assignments within a short commute of your Tradestaff branch, operational requirements will sometimes mean a longer commute than normal.
WHAT IF I WANT TO MOVE TO A DIFFERENT LOCATION?
Due to Tradestaff having 12 branches nationwide, it is possible to relocate at a later date. However, please note
that our demands differ from region-to-region, so it could be some time before an opportunity becomes available. Also note that you would likely need to apply for a new Work Visa if moving to a different region.
