When no suitable New Zealanders are available, how can we find, recruit and retain skilled employees from overseas?
According to a new economic forecast, the tourism revival can fend off New Zealand’s recession with the right people in place.
What we need now is great people to join us at this defining time. Our recent Workforce and Industry Readiness survey found that 75% of TIA members are currently recruiting.
59% of job vacancies are receiving less than five applications per role, and over 40% of you told us you will have to rely on overseas workers this year if you are unable to source suitable New Zealanders.
To support you with your workforce challenges, TIA has organised a webinar on recruiting workers from overseas.
In this webinar, we'll hear from NZ/AUS Divisional Manager Sharyn Hight from BUNAC, a company that brings Working Holiday Visa holders into New Zealand and assists with settlement and finding employment.
Immigration New Zealand's Sector Strategy Manager (Tourism) Julia Lindsay will speak to the Accredited Employer Work Visa.
Programme Director Heidi Gillingham from Go with Tourism will help us understand the connection between Working Holiday Visa approvals and the job listings they receive.
Join us for this 45-minute Discussing Tourism webinar with an opportunity for Q&A at the end.
