While being a student in New Zealand, one no longer requires a work permit for being employed informally for working 20 hours/week during the course and 40 hours/week during the vacation period. If possible, it is best if the student gets employed within the university campus, which cuts down the costs for travelling and makes more time available for the student to be within the university and hence study longer for ones degree. Having a New Zealand-style Curriculum Vitae (CV) will increase your chances of getting a job interview.
International students enrolled for full-time courses do not require an additional work permit to work in the country. However, they do need to have the proper documentation to be able to gain employment. The minimum wage prescribed by the New Zealand government is NZ $ 16.50, which is normally translated to NZ $13.25 after tax cuts.
You can work up to 20 hours a week if you’re studying full-time for any of the following:
You may be able to work full-time only under the following circumstances:
New Zealand charges income tax on a pay as you earn (PAYE) system for people on salary and wages. If you are earning income, you will have tax deducted automatically before you receive it. You will need to get a tax (IRD) number before you start work in New Zealand. If you don’t have a tax number, tax will be deducted from your income at the highest rate. So it's a good idea to apply for an IRD number when you first arrive in New Zealand.
It is very difficult for a student with no experience to get a job even though it’s a part-time job in New Zealand. The best way to get a part time job is for someone who was/is working at the establishment to recommend you for the post that you are applying for. New Zealand is relatively small with sparse population, making it very difficult to find part time jobs. If one is exceptionally good at the subject, the mentor of the course could employ one for teaching assistantships, which might pay well and one doesn’t lose touch over the subject because one is constantly learning instead of doing menial jobs. But one has to be really careful at weighing the pros and cons of working while studying in New Zealand. The course itself will be very demanding with constant assignments and tests, and it may become taxing to work along with the course. The student must never sacrifice a good quality outcome with a college degree for meager minimum wage jobs.
Students enrolled on courses on the Degree Program are allowed to undertake an internship where this forms part of their program.
You can apply for a visa to work in New Zealand for up to 3 years after you finish your study if you have an acceptable qualification. A Post-study work visa lasts for 1, 2 or 3 years depending on the level of your qualification and where you studied. A Post-study work visa lets you work for any employer and in almost any job. Your partner can apply for a work visa and your dependent children can study fee-free as domestic students. Studying for qualifications in an occupation that has skill shortages may increase your chances of getting a job. You can find more about the skill shortage list here.
