Pacific Experience

New Zealand has strong links to the Pacific Island Nations of Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia. Globally speaking, these nations are on our doorstep and a large number have direct flights out of NZ. This has meant that our business has a strong focus on the Pacific and PNG markets. We regularly supply staff into this region and it remains the core focus of our business.

Paul Pledge our GM Global Operations Manager sits on the Executive Committee of the NZ Pacific Business Council. The NZPBC has developed associations with businesses in NZ and the Pacific Islands, as well as engaging with Government and NGO’s to improve trade and economic outcomes in the region. Tradestaff Global is also an active member on the New Zealand Papua New Guinea Business Council

Many of the Pacific Islands, particularly the smaller or more remote ones suffer from a shortage of skilled labour in the trades sector. Expat labour is the only option to combat these skills shortages in a timely manner.

We have placed over 300 people into roles in the Pacific Islands. For most countries within this region, we are already aware of local legislation, taxation, work permit processes, and challenges faced when doing business, resulting in our ability to react quickly to clients’ staffing needs in this region.

We have existing relationships with local partners, government officials, high commissions and businesses that we can utilise to ensure we can deliver an exceptional service to our clients.
