With NZ Labour Hire you get the convenience, immediacy and flexibility of taking on staff exactly when you want them. It’s easy, too, with one simple invoice a week that takes care of everything from PAYE to holiday pay and sickness cover.

But with us there’s something more. It shows in our approach and the attention to detail that means you get the right person for the job, right first time.


Our ability to find the right candidate for your job requirement begins even before the interview stage (something we do with every potential candidate, unlike some other companies).

The advertising we undertake is not the kind of trawling that hauls in database fillers indiscriminately. Deservedly, that’s the kind of thing that gets a bad name amongst candidates and clients alike. Our advertising is expertly designed to attract the best and leave the rest, so we begin with a head start in new recruitment.

This means the candidates on our database are not just file numbers and job sheets, They're people we know, so we can be sure they’ll fit the need and really deliver, How?

  • Work history reference checks with previous employers
  • Ministry of Justice checks on every candidate
  • Comprehensive Health and Safety inductions
  • Drug and alcohol screening if required
  • ACC injury history investigation
  • Numeracy and literacy testing
  • Site safe courses
  • Internal Trialing
