    Default Changing Jobs with Work Permit

    Hi all,

    If I was offered a job with an employer and then granted a work permit for that, what happens if I decide to quit and look for other jobs. Do I have to reapply for another work permit ?

    Also, how does an open work permit work?

    Its pretty simple but be very careful otherwise you might end up in an immigration mess!
    You will need a variation of conditions to your current permit. But this only works if you change one condition i.e either employer, location or job title.
    An open work permit allows you to work for anyone and do any type of work.

    I'm no longer working for the same employer as when I was granted my permit. Does this affect my Work Permit?

    If you’re here under a working holiday scheme, changing employers does not affect your Work Permit.

    For all other workers, if your employer is named on your Work Permit, then you need to inform us that you’ve changed employer. You will need to apply for another Work Permit and must apply for a new permit when you have a job offer. You should not start work in your new job until you have a new Work Permit.

    If you gained your permit because you secured a job with an accredited New Zealand employer, you’ll only be able to remain in New Zealand if you’re working for another accredited employer. Even if you find work with another accredited employer, we’ll still need to approve the arrangement.


    From here.

    If you read through this it tells you about varying the conditions of your work permit.
