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:

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