Frequently Asked Questions

LookSee Build N.Z. is a talent attraction programme for construction and engineering professionals.

If you're in the construction industry and are wanting to move to New Zealand, it's as simple as registering with us and creating an online profile that will be assessed by a member of our Talent Team. From there, you may be invited to upload a short personal video which could be put forward to participating employers along with your profile to review.

Once you have been put forward to employers our talent team will start matching you with suitable jobs on offer from the participating companies, and employers will be able to request to interview you through the LookSee platform.

Along the way you'll receive one-on-one support and access to seminars that will help you get NZ-ready and give you further insight into what it would be like to work for some of our participating employers.

If you generate interest from multiple employers you may be invited to attend LookSee Build N.Z. Week in Auckland during February 2018. Many job offers will be made during LookSee Build N.Z. Week. However, hires can be made earlier. And if you can’t make it to N.Z. in February, or you’re not quite ready to move, as a member of our talent community the door will be open for you to come to N.Z. through 2018 and beyond.

LookSee Build N.Z. Week will take place in Auckland during February 2018.
