Helping Businesses To Become Accredited

Recently, we assisted the nationwide horticulture business Zealandia to become an accredited employer. With over 200 staff they were facing constant skilled labour shortages, gaining employer accreditation is now saving them both time and money when they need to go offshore to recruit.

“I work for a horticulture business that employs over 200 staff. We’re considered to be a large horticulture business in an industry with a skill shortage. If we weren’t able to hire offshore staff, we’d be in big trouble.

Thanks to the assistance from Aaron, Zealandia is now an Immigration New Zealand Accredited Employer.
Gaining accreditation means we’ve almost completed the immigration process before we recruit. As long as our candidate fits the criteria, Immigration New Zealand has already given us preapproval. This means we don’t risk going through the whole expense of recruiting from overseas with the risk of not being able to have the selected candidate be successful from an immigration perspective.

We’ve been working with Aaron for years now. I really like how upfront and honest he is about whether a case is likely to be successful. I don’t think he likes coming second very much, and I get the feeling he doesn’t submit a case unless he’s pretty sure it will get across the line.

We’ve also experienced cases that were unsuccessful where Aaron went into bat for us because he believed the law had been interpreted wrong. He has had decisions overturned by challenging the decision-maker. As a lay-person, that’s exactly what you need from your immigration lawyer.

We have huge confidence in what Aaron says and we lean on him for advice. He’s a good man. We wouldn’t have achieved the success from an immigration perspective in our business without someone like him in our camp.”

Aaron Martin Review

“We used NZIL to get our permanent resident visa’s.

Before meeting Aaron, I had been in contact with another Immigration firm who I felt didn’t seem to have the in-depth knowledge about what to do that we got from Aaron.

From making an initial website inquiry, Aaron was proactive and knowledgeable. Every step of the process Aaron and his team have been very professional and easy to deal with and unlike with previous lawyers we did not have to continuously chase up, they were very proactive and on top of our application. Thank you, Aaron and team.” Rebecca Weeks
