Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA) has released the list of recruitment agencies authorized to deploy Filipino workers (OFWs) for New Zealand. To be safe from illegal recruiters, apply only to these agencies.
According to POEA chief Hans Leo J. Cacdac, there is no government to government hiring agreement between the Philippines and New Zealand, hence, POEA is not directly recruiting workers to the said country. OFWs can instead, go directly to the accredited manpower agencies which have existing job orders from New Zealand employers.
Most of the job openings for New Zealand are for construction workers which include bricklayers, blocklayers, carpenters, electricians, fabricators, painters, plasterers, and welders.
Other available jobs are butcher, chef, CNC machinist, ductman, finisher floor, excavator operator, plumber, driver, diesel mechanic, laborer for dairy farm, asphalter, and wall paper installer.
They need experienced and trained workers from these field of specializations probably to rebuild NZ’s second-largest city which was damaged by a calamity back in 2011.

POEA Chief Cacdac reminded the accredited manpower agencies, and employers to follow New Zealand and Philippine Laws and regulations when it comes to recruitment and employment of skilled workers.
Manpower agencies should prohibit themselves from collecting placement fees from Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) that will be deployed to New Zealand since the latter is a “no placement fee country.”
Note: Upon checking all the names of the listed recruitment agencies for New Zealand, I found out that there are certain agencies that are under preventive suspension, some have canceled license, and one agency has changed its name. I would suggest that you verify directly to POEA about the update for each manpower agencies. Again, be a responsible job seeker.
