International Appointments

Recruiting and employing staff from off-shore often raises many and at times quite complex questions, particularly regarding the cost of living in New Zealand, our tax rates, and employment laws.

External websites

The below external websites provide information to assist with questions regarding living and working in New Zealand.

Local city councils are a good source of local community information and a sense of what kind of lifestyle can be expected.

Relocation management

How Massey manages relocation for new appointments and their families detailed in our relocation guidelines.

Visa immigration information

Staff considering or preparing to relocate to New Zealand are encouraged to apply for their visa or work permit as soon as possible, as it can take considerable time for applications to be approved.

Settling in

Additional information in our induction section is available on how to assist the new staff member and their family's transition to New Zealand after their arrival.
