12-month extension on Employer Accreditation

Did you know that by submitting your first employer accreditation before 4 July 2023, you will receive a free 12-month government extension and save your business around $1200?

Accreditation is a legal requirement for anyone looking to hire or retain international staff. Whether your organisation is employing people on a visa now or likely to in the future, you need to be prepared and get your accreditation status in place.

We understand the challenges employers face in managing costs, and we’re here to support you. With the cost of everything steadily increasing we’re finding this extension window, and it’s significant savings, is the incentive many employers have been waiting for to finally tackle their accreditation.

Our dedicated team have helped hundreds of Kiwi employers of all sizes gain their accreditation status, even long before it was a legal requirement, and we can help you too!

Managing your employer accreditation with us puts your organisation in the best position to:

  • Be ‘hire ready’ – Don’t risk missing out on securing key staff. Get one step ahead and be ready to hire when the need arises.
  • Attract top talent – Being accredited enables your organisation to legally attract and hire skilled international professionals choosing New Zealand.
  • Streamline your recruitment process – We ensure you can efficiently and quickly recruit skilled workers who meet your specific requirements, saving you time and resources.
  • Enhance your reputation – Being INZ compliant helps build a positive reputation for your organisation among job seekers and industry peers.

Make the most of this limited-time government offer and secure your accreditation for an additional 12 months, completely free of charge.

We are ready to assist you and answer any questions you may have. Get in touch today to get your organisation prepared and in the best possible position to hire and retain key staff.
