There are no shortage of career opportunities in the New Zealand technology sector.

The technology sector is booming, and while not all of these jobs require a degree, getting a job can be harder than getting into a world cup final.

Competition between businesses is too steep for firms to hire those who aren’t qualified, and demand for these positions is greater than the skills that exist in the marketplace. Yet finding the right one can still be a challenge.

Incredible job opportunities exist, if you know how to get them. Partnering with a specialist in matching the right people with the right jobs can make all the difference. In which case we can recommend a few recruitment firms that specialise in the tech sector.

Alternatively you might like to start search online job hubs such as Linkedin, Seek or TradeMe.


Choosing a recruitment firm.

There is no right answer as different recruitment firms have different specialities, different networks and jobs available. Visit their websites and find out what sort of roles they have available. But when you start really searching for the new job we recommend going in and talking to the recruiters to explain your background and experience first hand.
