Supporting Migrant and Employers of Migrants in Aged Care
In collaboration with sector stakeholders, including Bupa, Immigration New Zealand has developed two helpful and comprehensive guides with very useful information.
A Guide for Migrants: Working in Aged Care in New Zealand
Information on work rights and where to go for help, qualifications, health and safety, hours of work and tips on communication in the workplace as well as information about living in New Zealand.
A Guide for Employers: Are you employing migrant workers in Aged Care?
Information about some of the differences employers may find in employing migrants with insights and tips that will help you settle your new migrant workers into your workplace and maximise their contribution.
To order the above publications, email Immigration New Zealand and include the title of the guide you want, the number of copies needed and the physical (not postal) address to send them to.
