Hi there guys - I met you at the Groynes on Sunday 30 September, remember me? I'm the short little one with the glasses.  I just happened to stumble onto this site - it's great.  Well, I only have 4 weeks left here and remember that I was discussing my immigration papers with you, well, I phoned them today and they reckon I need to apply to employers with "an open plan employment policy" - have you ever heard of that?  Where do we find these people?  It would be great for us SA'ns and a lot easier!!  Well, hope you guys get sorted out and VIVA la Bokke !!!
Cheers 4 now

Hi Natalie - yep we remember you - the alhzeimers is still no too bad  :D Anyway I think they meant an 'approved' employer. Some companies (typically computer companies) are preregistered with Immigration as employing people in areas of skills shortages - and as such they can employe whomever they want without having to provide any proof that they cannot find a Kiwi to do the same job. Other companies can also employ you but they do need to fill in a form proving that they tried (unsuccessfully) to find a Kiwi for the position.

Anyway good luck - see you soon.
