Employer Information

At Cottrell Law we understand the important role employees play in the success of a business. We understand that your business requires skills and expertise which may not found domestically. We work with employers to ensure that the sourcing and recruitment of overseas staff is smooth and successful.

The following are the key areas we work in:

Approval in Principle

We assist employers to obtain Approval in Principle from Immigration New Zealand to employ overseas staff. There is a need to demonstrate that there are no New Zealanders to perform these roles. If you would advice about Approval in Principle, please click here.

Employer Accreditation

Employers who have a sound financial position, high quality human resources polices and processes, have demonstrated a commitment to training and employing New Zealanders; and have good workplace practises may be eligible to make an application for Employer Accreditation. This then allows the employer to recruit staff from overseas. There are key conditions that must be met by both the employer and the potential employee. If you would like further information about this category, please click here.

Skills Shortage Lists

Immigration New Zealand NZ recognises that there are occupations where New Zealand employers will be unable to recruit a suitably qualified or experience New Zealand to that occupation. These occupations are defined on one of the following lists:

  • Immediate Skills Shortages; or
  • Long Term Skills Shortages; or
  • Canterbury Skills Shortages

If you would like further information about these categories, please click here.

If you have any other questions as an employer, please feel free to submit an assessment or contact us directly for advice and assistance.
