We can connect you with employers in New Zealand.  The NZ technology industry is experiencing a local candidate shortage, which is why Potentia developed multiple global sourcing channels to introduce overseas talent into the NZ job market!

A number of our team have been through the immigration process themselves so they are well placed to understand what you’re going through and offer the extra support they couldn’t otherwise provide.
