Catalyst Recruitment is a New Zealand based International sourcing specialist. For the last twenty years our team has been supporting our New Zealand clients with the expertise to locate and secure internationally qualified candidates to facilitate the delivery of New Zealand’s construction and engineering projects. Our approach is unique as we focus on the candidate. We ensure that you are provided with a seamless service ending in a successful migration to our beautiful country.

At present, New Zealand is the most exciting international destination for any construction or engineering professional. New Zealand has always offered the highest possible levels of work life balance and quality of life, but for the next 10 years we are able to offering career defining opportunities that match and surpass other traditional migration destinations. The future project list is impressive to say the least.

New Zealand offers a stunning environment; a fantastically balanced climate as well as the ability to spend much more time with your family. You get to choose whether that time is spent at the beach, tramping, playing golf, or just generally enjoying being outdoors.

There is only one sensible way to approach the serious business of migration. Contact Catalyst today to plan the move. The process takes between 3 and 6 months so you could well be on a New Zealand beach, just after Christmas, enjoying an evening walk or swim with the kids.
