NZ’s new Scheme to Draw International Skilled Workers to Wellington
In order to fill the gaps in the thriving technology sector, caused by the scarcity of skilled workforce within New Zealand, Wellington is seeking to lure professionals from overseas.

A brand new programme known as “LookSee” will usher a 100 IT professionals, who are pre-screened, from across the globe to NZ’s capital of Wellington and most likely coax them all to stay. known as “LookSee” will usher a 100 IT professionals, who are pre-screened, from across the globe to NZ’s capital of Wellington and most likely coax them all to stay.

David Jones, a spokesman for Wellington Regional Economic Agency, stated that applications for the above scheme are now officially open.

"They will then go through a screening process to apply and get selected, all being while they get selected and are invited to actually come to Wellington to see the benefits of living and working here as well as go through a series of interviews with a number of companies."

He says accommodation and flights shall all be sponsored or paid by the co-founders of ‘WorkHere’, WREDA & Immigration New Zealand.

Jones further stated that just one single news write-up in the newspaper - ‘San Francisco Chronicle’… had resulted in a great number of 400 sign-ups.

According to him, there is not much of a strong or similar kind of talent in the country yet. 

"In the long term, what our ambitions are is to create that talent through graduates and people retraining here in Wellington, but the demand is now and the supply isn't there, so we're trying to bridge that gap."
