Moving into the World's Best Office

Do I need a work visa?

Yes, unless you are a New Zealand or Australian citizen or permanent resident.

How do I get a work visa?

Whether you’re an electrical or environmental professional, having a relevant qualification makes a big difference to your chances of being offered a job with us and getting a New Zealand work visa.

The best time to apply for a New Zealand work visa through Immigration New Zealand is when you receive a job offer from us. That’s because Delta has Accredited Employer status with Immigration New Zealand, enabling us to recruit suitable candidates from other countries to work under the Work to Resident Talent Scheme. This provides the right to work in NZ for two years, after which time you may apply for permanent residence under the Residence from Work Category. Delta will give you all the support you need through this process.

Can my family come with me?

Yes, under the Work to Residence Talent Scheme. Plus:

  • your partner can apply for a work permit and/or visa without the need for a job offer
  • your primary and secondary school aged dependent children can go to school as 'domestic' fee paying students
  • applications for Residence can include all dependent children up to the age of 24 years old who are single and have no children of their own

Is there an age limit when applying for a work visa?

You must be under 55 years of age at the time of applying for the Talent Work Visa and meet the Immigration New Zealand health and character requirements.

Will Delta pay for my relocation?

This is assessed on a case-by-case basis and will be discussed during your interviews. But rest assured, if we do offer you a position, we’ll do everything we can to make your move as stress-free as possible and give you the support you need to settle in New Zealand.

Where would I work and live?

Most of the roles at Delta are based in the city of Dunedin and across the province of Central Otago, although opportunities also come up in the cities of Christchurch and Nelson.

All locations offer a great range of housing options and abundant lifestyle choices, together with easy access to schooling, healthcare and recreational facilities.

And the commute to work? That isn’t an issue with The World’s Best Office.

How does the health service work?

For minor illnesses and accidents, people in New Zealand visit qualified doctors called general practitioners, who charge for their services. Hospital treatment is free for permanent residents and New Zealand citizens.

What is the standard of education?

New Zealand is in the world’s top 20 countries for the quality of its schools according to the OECD in 2016. Education for children aged from 5 to 19 is free at government owned and funded schools for permanent residents and New Zealand citizens.

What is the climate?

Temperatures in New Zealand can range between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius in summer and 10 to 15 degrees in winter, except in mountainous areas where it can drop below freezing.

How many people live in New Zealand?

New Zealand is a large country, around the size of the United Kingdom or Oregon in the USA, with a population of around 4.7 million. About 68% are European, 15% Māori, the indigenous people of New Zealand, and 12% Asian.

What is the lifestyle?

New Zealand is a safe, stable country that offers great work-life balance. Whether it’s team sports, adventures on land, water or snow, live theatre or music, barbeques on the beach, dinners of freshly caught fish or family meals at home with fruit and vegetables from the garden, people enjoy life to the full.

Where can I get more information?

New Zealand Now, run by Immigration New Zealand, contains lots of information about life and work here.

It’s a good idea to research prices and income to determine what sort of lifestyle you could afford.
