The 2017 NZ Tech Manifesto says "While high immigration poses infrastructure and other challenges for New Zealand, ensuring the right people with the right skills can come here is essential for the future of our industry."

What is the situation if you need IT staff now and cannot find them locally? In this session Craig Walsh will discuss immigration visa options for employers and ways in which Immigration NZ can assist employers in the Tech sector.

After the meeting you will have the chance to network with Craig and other peers from the IT industry over some drinks and nibbles.
