Labour Shortages – Hawkes Bay –

The New Zealand Ministry of Social Development (MSD) recently declared a national shortage of workers in Hawkes Bay to assist in the pip fruit industry. The picking season runs from 25 February to 5 April.

This means if you are in New Zealand on a visitor visa you may apply for a Variation of Conditions to take up employment for a 6 week period in Hawkes Bay.

While the season is for a period of 6 weeks, the MSD may extend the period.

Contact us today to assist you with your Variation.
