Employer accreditation is currently voluntary, but a decison is expected any day now confirming that it will be mandatory for all employers wishing to sponsor migrants for employer assisted work visas to hold employer accreditation from January 2020.
As it stands, if you are a New Zealand company that regularly recruits skilled workers from overseas, you may benefit from becoming an accredited employer.
The purpose of accreditation is to allow employers to recruit highly talented workers from overseas more easily to ensure access to the global skills their company requires. Becoming an Accredited Employer offers the freedom to employ workers from outside New Zealand without having to prove there are no suitably qualified New Zealanders applying, or readily able to be trained, to do the work.
