Each year many expats make the exciting move to Christchurch, being the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand and the third most populated city of New Zealand.

The services of a recruitment agency will prove invaluable to an expat seeking employment whilst residing in Christchurch.

Localised Knowledge of Recruitment Agency

A recruitment agency has localised knowledge of the opportunities presented by various industries and work sectors.

They can match an expat’s knowledge and work experience with such industries and sectors.

Recruitment Agency’s Large Network of Employers

In addition, a recruitment agency has a large network of local employers.

They can, therefore, usually quickly, match an expat’s skills and expertise with an appropriate employer.

Assistance Through All Stages of Employment Process

Following up on an employment application is also a part of a recruitment agency’s role.

An expat is therefore assisted through all the stages of the employment process, from the initial interview to salary negotiation.

Access to Employment Vacancies Which Are Not Advertised

Through years of partnership with clients, recruitment agencies are often first to learn about available employment vacancies.

Some of these employment vacancies are not advertised, thus granting expat access to additional markets regarding employment.
