 Join some of the brightest and best in New Zealand IT - meet Presto Resourcing in the UK this March

If you would like to work in New Zealand, Presto wants to meet you in London this March.

More than half (56%) of New Zealand’s business leaders are struggling to access digital talent, according to PwC New Zealand’s 2018 CEO Survey. New Zealand-owned consultancy, Presto Resourcing are travelling to the UK this March to meet and recruit IT professionals.

They are looking to meet candidates with a mix of skills, from Senior Developers to Site Reliability Engineers. We spoke to Cherrie Wheeler, Presto’s National Delivery Manager about this opportunity:

“Currently we are seeking specific skilled people to join our ecosystem of local employers in New Zealand, but we also intend to build a talent pool for future opportunities, as Presto has grown 20% last year in our two branches in New Zealand and the opportunities keep arising”, stated Wheeler.


Over an extended week from 21st March in London, Presto will interview over 150 pre-selected people. They are travelling to recruit for over 30 vital roles that cover every aspect of technology industry - including developers, scrum masters, project managers, consultants, testers, business analysts and more. Great IT minds are needed for several leading technology firms; Presto also represent nationwide companies, who are looking for software engineers and Full Stack .net developers - these being particularly hard to find in Aotearoa.

As part of the Optimation Group, one of New Zealand's longest standing Kiwi-owned IT integrators, Presto believes this can influence in their ability to attract international highly skilled people to the country, as Optimation NZ is an Accredited Employer with Immigration NZ. What does that mean?

With this visa, skilled migrants can work in New Zealand for Optimation and apply for residence after 2 years or working for Optimation. Check if you are eligible here.

Immigration New Zealand will be in attendance to support the employers and to give candidates good advice on their visa choices. In a competitive worldwide job market, INZ will also be encouraging applicants to choose New Zealand as their new home.

When asked about the opportunities and chances of having a career growth in New Zealand, Wheeler was really positive about it:

“New Zealand’s tech sector is diverse and advanced. Opportunities within this sector can cover development, infrastructure, health IT, telecommunications, agricultural technology, digital transformation and support for large government agencies and more. Whatever your speciality is there might be opportunities here for you”.


In the wider economy, nearly 75,000 people are employed in ICT-related roles. While most IT jobs are in the main centres (Auckland 50% and Wellington 27%), there are opportunities across the whole country. That’s because medium to large businesses and government departments everywhere employ their own IT professionals and support staff.

This is an outstanding opportunity to meet a leading Resourcing company who represents the biggest players from New Zealand tech industry and attend their interviews and information sessions.
