Moving to NZ

How we can help
Careers at VINZ

Let us assist you

There’s a shortage of automotive technicians and diesel mechanics who are able to carry out vehicle inspections in New Zealand.

If you’re planning a career change and considering moving to New Zealand, then you’re well on your way to discovering New Zealand’s unique lifestyle, cultural diversity and family-friendly environment, making it an ideal place to live, work and play.

Many of our vehicle inspectors are experiencing life in New Zealand after moving from the UK, South Africa, Fiji, Singapore and other countries around the world.

If you’re a qualified and experienced automotive technician or truck mechanic, we would love to hear from you!
