Hiring trends in New Zealand in 2019

In 2018, New Zealand’s economy felt the impact of a shift in Government, after a surprise election result. Investment gradually switched from commerce towards social areas such as housing, education and health - and New Zealand jobs growth will reflect this trend. 

Key drivers of job growth are: 

  • Technology 
  • Large infrastructure projects 

New Zealand will experience acute skill shortages in 2019, and there will be opportunities for those in skill short areas to develop their careers and apply transferable skills to new roles. 

Employers will need to emphasize flexible working arrangements, learning and development and staff empowerment as salaries are unlikely to rise steeply across the board.
