There are many ways to find employment but before you start you many want to think about the type of employment you are looking for.
Temporary – great to build experience, many recruitment agencies will take people without experience and place them in temp roles where the duties are varied. Temping can be to cover maternity, sickness, holiday or even planned positions that become permanent.
Permanent – ideal if you are looking for a career, or long term stability. New Zealand is one of the few countries that has no 90 day period of unfair dismissal. This means that the employee has greater employment rights even from their first day of permanent employment. However with the new government in power as 2008, this situation may change.
Contract – very lucrative for people with hard to find skills. Rather than be employed to represent the company, contractors are hired to complete specific tasks. Normally once that task is completed the contract is ended and the contractor looks for another contract. Contractors can earn more money than permanent employees but the work is not always stable.
