About us

Company Profile

Immigration Placement Services Ltd was founded in 2002 in response to the skills shortage in New Zealand. It was our aim to meet the needs of employers and migrants with win-win outcomes. We are based in New Zealand and have agents in a number of countries to provide personalised service to migrants in their country of residence.

IPS specialises in securing employment and visas for migrants. Over recent years we have gradually expanded our services to provide comprehensive support to migrants, students and employers and placing migrants in jobs in New Zealand

Immigration New Zealand made changes at the beginning of 2006 that require most migrants to obtain a job offer in order to gain sufficient points for residency in NZ. Since these changes were introduced, the demand for our services has become intense. Everyday we receive a large number of enquiries from skilled would-be migrants all over the world.

To date we have assisted many NZ employers and successfully placed hundreds of migrants from Korea, China, Japan, Russia, Germany, the UK, India, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Austria, South Africa, Philippines and other countries.


We currently have authorized agents in:

  • Germany
  • South Africa
  • India
  • Sri Lanka
  • Nepal
  • Singapore
  • China
  • Malaysia
  • UK
  • Mauritius
  • Philippines

We conduct series of tailored migrant seminars in conjunction with our agents.
