We put New Zealand employers first

Here’s what they have to say…

SRG Global

Working In has been an invaluable partner to SRG Global, consistently exceeding our expectations. Their expertise in managing multiple rounds of recruitment from the Philippines and handling hundreds of staff visas has been instrumental in meeting our resourcing needs over the years.

Their visa team secured our accreditation status even before it became a mandatory requirement. They consistently demonstrate a proactive approach and a strong commitment to immigration compliance.

The personalised support provided to our employees throughout their visa and residency process significantly eased the transition and integration for our whole team.

Working In has proven to be more than just a service provider; they are a strategic partner who genuinely listens and offers both short-term and long-term solutions. Their willingness to go above and beyond to accommodate our needs is always appreciated.

We highly recommend Working In for their professionalism, dedication, and the seamless experience they deliver.

Their professionalism is outstanding and their knowledge of every law change has been so valuable for our people leaders. I can always count on the consultants to get back in touch quickly and they are very thorough with their applications and information given out. I would not hesitate to recommend the team at Working In.”

Lynn Miller / Talent Acquisition Consultant

Why did you choose Working In?

“We were using Working In at the start of 2020 for an international recruitment drive to Europe. When that did not go ahead because of Covid we used their advisors to help us understand the immigration changes for new employees wanting Visa information for NZ. This grew to engaging their services to help us apply for Visas and Job Checks for International Candidates. “

What would you tell someone that’s considering working with us?

Working In is very thorough and very detailed. They are experts on Immigration and the turnaround times are the best so far I have found in Auckland. They have had 100% success with our candidates gaining Visas. They also have a free portal to help with new Settlements.”

What are the benefits of using our service?

“Fast turnarounds. Prompt service, call backs, and detailed information on each candidate. The service is very thorough and I have found it to be extremely reliable.”

“I would strongly recommend Working In. They are prompt and always return emails and phone calls within a day. They have always given us very reliable information and processed visas with immigration very quickly. I liked their market updates, their reporting on visas we have in progress and nothing was too much trouble.”

Steve Dohnt / HR, HSEQ Manager


“I have sought professional advice from Nassim Lalehzari & the Working In Visas Team regarding matters relating to immigration; including work visas, residence and employer accreditation. I have found Nassim to be the ultimate professional, providing consistent, helpful, and pragmatic advice in a timely manner. She is trustworthy, honest and has a welcoming approach. It is reassuring to have someone like Nassim and her team help navigate the ever-changing immigration laws and regulations and we have progressed many applications without an issue. While I worked as HR Manager at Dominion Constructors Ltd and in my current role at Komatsu, I often seek advice from Nassim regarding many immigration issues and have often recommended her services to others.”

By Design Concrete and Paving

“When we first met Scott and Nassim, we felt instantly comfortable with them. They took the time and explained in detail all the pros and cons. Once we decided that Working In were to be our agents, they were there to help us every step of the process. We were also lucky to work alongside Hamneet, their Immigration Adviser. She has helped us with all our paperwork along the way. Even at times when it can get overwhelming, she was always only a call away. They don’t just “take your money”, the support and the professionalism they demonstrate every step of the way is outstanding. Yes there is a lot to process, but they help you all the way even if you, like myself, find it confusing they will help you. Nothing is a problem. Everything worked like clockwork. The best thing was the relationship we have built with them over the last 4 years and we are still using Working In at present. We have highly recommended them to other companies. The back up support not only to us but our crew as well is outstanding. We give Working In 5 stars out of 5 stars, we highly recommend them.”

Peter Robinson / Director

“You have some amazing staff within Working In. A special mention about Hamneet what a rock star. She is the most efficient communicator and so easy to work with and always gets back so fast with whatever needs to be sorted out. Nothing is a problem to her at all.

Yesterday Hamneet, Petra and Don came in to have a well being meeting with all our Filipino crew (15). They were amazing explaining about bring over family and working together to make this happen with the support and services Working In can offer them. Along with many other questions our guys asked and have explained in their language to them as well.

The crew all walked away happy yesterday with clear goals over the next few months and years about their work visas and gateway to getting residency etc. It was l a great idea from Hamneet to get the crew together and see how they have all settled into working with us here. Plus the crew can make contact with Working In going forward.

Again thanks to you all as always, the support you have given By Design Concrete and Paving over the last 5 years making it so easy for us here to fill the gaps in our growing company. We aren’t the brightest clients you work with but you guys “get us” and are very patient guiding us every step of the way.”

Great company to work with when it comes to what can be complicated immigration matters. Great to work with and it seems like objectives are met one way or another. Very helpful advice and guidance to have just a phone call away. And very reliable as the results speak for themselves.

“This is a great company to deal with. They don’t muck around & get things done pronto. Extremely knowledgeable in their field & will go above & beyond the call of duty to keep things moving. I would highly recommend Woking In Visas. From start to finish Tanvi’s dedication to getting the documents together was amazing. There was a lot to deal with on the paper work front which was quite stressful as I’m very busy but Tanvi went above & beyond to assist me through the whole process making it a lot easier. 5 stars from me!”

The Treasury New Zealand


“A combination of ongoing skill shortages and a need for highly specialised IT professionals meant we have needed to come up with new ways to find that elusive talent.

For us, with the help of Working In, it meant “taking Theta to the people” to meet a potentially untapped UK market. We knew attending the Working In event might not necessarily solve our short term pain, but it would help in the long run. As it happens, the trip has already paid off – we have hired two people and have a talent pool of great candidates we can call on for future vacancies.”



“Clarksons were assisted by Working In to recruit Electricians and Fuel Technicians from the UK…Working In made the whole process very easy – from excellent candidates right through to their guidance with the work visa process. We had great success and now have some new valuable team members from the UK.” have a talent pool of great candidates we can call on for future vacancies.”
