Partner Testimonials

We have strong relationships with a settlement services partners, show organisers, New Zealand employers and recruiters. Here is what they have to say about us:

New Zealand Skills in Demand always recommend their candidates use Migration Associates as part of their move to New Zealand and see them as a vital cog in the process. Skills in Demand’s employer partners in New Zealand want to know a potential candidate can get through the visa process should they offer a job. Once the candidate is working with Migration Associates they know they are in the best possible hands and that the chances of getting the applicant through the visa process in a timely matter increases accordingly. Without the assistance of Migration Associates, employers are less likely to have the confidence to offer roles to applicants who are often mis-informed and have the potential to not be granted a visa and therefore not commence work.
— Mark Morrison, International Operations Manager, New Zealand Skills In Demand
We are proud to partner alongside Migration Associates, a licensed specialist who provide excellent New Zealand immigration advice and visa processing. They deliver fantastic and reputable professional service to those wishing to live and work in New Zealand.

What makes Migration Associates stand out is that the owner is a New Zealander, so he has a great perspective on the country. Also, they have an office in the UK, and (in April 2016) the owner is travelling back to NZ to set up an office there, which will enable them to offer a personal touch from point of contact in the UK, to arrival in New Zealand.

The customers referred on to us by Migration Associates have nothing but high praise for the services provided, and to date we have received no negative feedback about them. We also attend a number of seminars around the UK and it has been great to be part of the team that have such an amazing approach to introducing New Zealand as the preferred destination to migrate too. I would have no hesitation in recommending Migration Associates to a friend or family member.

Tradestaff is one of the largest privately-owned recruitment agencies in New Zealand, specialising in supplying staff to the industrial & trades sectors. In recent years, the demand for skilled workers across the country has far outweighed the readily available supply, and has resulted in Tradestaff increasingly extending its search to source candidates outside of New Zealand’s borders.

As we are unable to offer immigration advice to candidates, we truly value the service that Migration Associates can provide. We readily refer our candidates to them, knowing they will receive thorough and knowledgeable information and advice on the New Zealand visa process.

Using Migration Associates’ services allows our international recruitment team to focus more of their valuable time on finding the perfect job offers and placements for our candidates and less on worrying about whether a visa application will be delayed or rejected due to misinformation or application errors; their services are invaluable to our business.
— Sally McFarlane, International Recruitment Manager, Tradestaff

We have been working with Migration Associates for the past five years, as we have a close relationship with Borey Chum from his formative years here in Christchurch, New Zealand.
