Staffhouse International Resources is committed to bringing passionate and hardworking employees from the Philippines to other countries and help them secure legal and fulfilling jobs.

Staffhouse is one of the top recruitment agencies in the Philippines for New Zealand. Together with Adecco New Zealand, the two agencies are committed to bringing skilled Filipino workers to New Zealand and helping employers in the country find culture-fit employees.
In February, Staffhouse and Adecco New Zealand helped a group of Filipinos secure jobs in Christchurch, Nelson, and Wellington. Beyond the recruitment process, the two recruitment agencies also supported the workers with their immigration to New Zealand.
Adecco New Zealand’s pastoral team welcomed their “international associates”—their term for their recruited workers—with an induction period in their headquarters involving classroom learning and practical tool demonstrations. The agency also gave the recruits personal protective equipment (PPE) and the tools essential to their respective jobs.
Aside from the business aspect, Adecco New Zealand offered local and Filipino cuisines to the international associates.
In today’s economy, recruitment agencies in New Zealand for Filipinos, like Adecco New Zealand and Staffhouse, are more important than ever. The country is currently experiencing a labor shortage partly due to extremely low unemployment of just 3.3% or 97,000 people.
In particular, the tourism and hospitality industries have been more hard hit than other. They also need manpower as pandemic restrictions continue to ease and international tourists visit New Zealand over the summer. It has even reached a point where 315,000 working-age teenagers and high school leavers are urged to work in hospitality to help struggling businesses.
To address the country’s labor shortage, Immigration New Zealand is actively promoting its Green List and Sector Agreement, which aims to help employers to recruit overseas workers to fill skills gaps. It’s also expanding its Green List settings to include more professions in healthcare, education, and construction as a way of giving New Zealand a competitive edge in a highly competitive global environment.
Other sectors that the government is expanding its Green List to include the following:
● Aged care
● Meat processing
● Seasonal snow
● Adventure tourism
● Public transportation (bus and truck drivers)
In December 2022, the agency approved over 94,000 job positions for international recruitment, granted over 40,000 working holiday visas, and reopened the Pacific Access Category and Samoa Quota, among other things, to strengthen the country’s international offering.
Based on current trends in New Zealand, below are five job roles expected to be in demand in 2023.
The demand for healthcare professionals is expected to remain high due to New Zealand’s aging population and increasing healthcare needs. Roles such as doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and healthcare managers are likely in demand.
The tech industry is rapidly growing in New Zealand, with many international companies setting up offices there. As a result, there is a high demand for software developers, particularly those with skills in artificial intelligence, machine learning, cybersecurity, and cloud computing.
New Zealand is experiencing a residential housing shortage, and the government has announced plans to build thousands of new homes to address the issue. As a result, skilled tradespeople such as carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and builders are likely to be in demand.
With the shift towards online and e-commerce, there is a high demand for digital marketing specialists who can help businesses increase their online presence, manage social media accounts, run advertising campaigns, and analyze data.
There is an increasing demand for teachers across all levels of education, including early childhood, primary, secondary, and tertiary education. Additionally, there is a need for specialist teachers in areas such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and Te Reo Maori (the Maori language).
