So, the global economy has tightened up - jobs are becoming harder to find, competition for available job openings is becoming more intense.

In early 2009 Align Recruitment launched a new website to assist international job seekers find that 'dream job' and 'dream lifestyle'. in New Zealand.
What are the advantages of moving to New Zealand in the current climate?
Right now, off the back of a dip in New Zealand exports, the New Zealand dollar (NZD) is at a low against most major trading partners. In effect, this means that migrants arriving from (for example) the USA are buying homes at half the price over the same period three or four years ago when the dollar was much stronger. New Zealand has also weathered the start of the global downturn with remarkable resilience - thanks largely to a strong agricultural market and limited exposure to the events happening within the securities market. The recent New Zealand elections saw a right wing 'National' led government assume the reins placing particular emphasis on public spending and tax cuts to continue to stimulate the New Zealand economy.
Another major attraction to New Zealand is opportunity. New Zealand has a number of skill shortage areas as defined by the Department of Labour, in particular in Healthcare. You can visit the Align Recruitment website to browse Clinical Psychologist jobs, Physician jobs, jobs for Nurses, Physiotherapist vacancies and Occupational Therapist openings in different parts of New Zealand. But whilst healthcare is a major focus of Align Recruitment, we also like to hear from people in areas such as Project Management, .NET Development, Embedded Software Development, Java Development, Testing Protocol Stacks and seeking related Software Engineering jobs. There is good opportunity for the right people with the right skills in New Zealand.
New Zealand is a nation with a strong migrant tradition. There are many communities represented here with immigrants coming from the USA, the United Kingdom, Canada, Scandinavia and the Asian continent. A key attraction to New Zealand is the great lifestyle. With a land mass similar to the Untied Kingdom, California or Japan and a population hovering around 4 million - open space is abundant. People with a love of the great outdoors will be in their element with so many activities on offer - from hiking, heliskiing and trekking to cycling, kayaking and fishing all staples of the New Zealand lifestyle. And, for families - with positive government assistance schemes and a safe environment - this is a great country in which to raise children. New Zealand is a great place for the long-term, but also offers a great way to experience something different in a stable climate during the current turmoil.

Align Recruitment was founded in 2002 by Larry Beck, an American expatriate who holds dual NZ and US citizenships. Prior to immigrating to New Zealand Larry had been working in recruitment in the USA. He says "When I came here I recognised that overseas job candidates looking to work in New Zealand needed more information, about the country, about the types of work, how best to interview for a position in New Zealand, insights into some of the Kiwi ways of doing things and they needed help with immigration. So, I set about launching Align International Recruitment Ltd to provide that information so that overseas job seekers could weigh up the advantages and disadvantages of immigrating to New Zealand and make the right choice for them."
Further Larry added, "We work closely with our applicants - even if there is not an immediate job opening we are always looking to hear from skilled professionals - we are constantly getting requests from employers to find that 'special person'."
