How International Perm Recruitment Works : We endeavour to go through the entire process from set up to the candidate's first day and beyond.

➡️ Start - Our staff will complete Permanent Terms of Trade with your team; this covers everything from selection criteria, salary, job description, fees and your guarantee . We aim to agree on 95% of the processes at this stage, so expectations are clear from the start and we are all on the same page

➡️ Hunt - We begin our search for the right candidates for you; this involves searching our database of over 80,000 staff, running advertising campaigns including print, online and radio media.

➡️ Screen - As applicants apply, they are screened using our online Q&A system or by telephone if we deem the candidate suitable for your needs.

​➡️ Interview - If successful in their telephone interview will be progressed to the next stage which involves a face to face interview or a Skype if they are located overseas.

We conduct an in-depth interview that covers skills, experience, personality, suitability for a client's individual requirements, health & safety, attitude, family situation and flexibility. During this interview candidates complete our application paperwork which includes a health & safety test and medical history.

➡️ Background checks - are completed for candidates we interview. This may include, but is not limited to: criminal record checks, ACC claims & medical history, reference checks with previous and current
employers, verification of qualifications, driver's license checks, literacy and numeracy tests and skills testing.

➡️ Client interviews- can be conducted if required; you have the final say on who is suitable for your vacancy. We may present multiple candidates to you for one role so that you have options of who you would like to engage. Most of our long-term clients now skip this stage as they trust us to make the right decision regarding which worker we send because we have consistently delivered the right person for the job.

➡️ Preparation -Should we get the green light from you to engage the candidate, we will complete medicals (ours, yours or site/country specific), drug testing, visa paperwork. Once all paperwork is ready to lodge, we send you copies of all relevant documentation including copies of qualifications, passports, medical paperwork, and any necessary documents.

​➡️ NZ Induction - We complete a pre-deployment induction with our staff which can be tailored to your needs. Our usual induction covers what to expect when working for a New Zealand company and a full guide to living in New Zealand as well as contacts to set them up and a full disclosure on how to obtain licenses, cell phone numbers, medical insurance and the logistics involved in getting to New Zealand and more.

​➡️ Travel - Once flights are booked, we send everything through to the candidate and confirm their arrival with your team. Clients can choose to add the relocation fee into the package or to have the candidate pay for their own relocation.

➡️ Ongoing Communication

​We keep in regular contact with the candidate and yourself throughout the hiring process and we will do so twice month for the first three months from the start date.
