New Zealand boasts a vibrant and diverse technology sector
New Zealand boasts a vibrant and diverse technology sector, covering health IT, digital content, telecommunications, gaming, aerospace, security, agricultural technology and much more. New Zealand is home to blue-chip multi-national IT companies as well as local firms that have become leading international brands and innovative tech start up’s in growth mode.
The IT sector creates a broad range of technology solutions and services for multiple national and off-shore markets. Contributing 5 per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), the sector employs 70,000 people which is more than 3 per cent of New Zealand’s total workforce.
The IT services sector is generating significant innovation and attracting investment in established and start-up businesses which in turn is driving employment growth. The number of firms in the sector has grown by 40 per cent over the last decade and wages and salaries are twice the New Zealand average. New Zealand employers regularly report difficulty in recruiting skilled staff in the IT services sector. There is demand for people with skills in Software Engineering, Application/Web Development, QA & Testing, Project Management, Business Analysis, Sales and Management roles to name a few.
New Zealand’s telecommunications infrastructure is well developed with the Government leading a roll out of Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) and Rural Broadband (RBI) programmes to improve Internet access and speed across the country. Providers within the telco industry are embracing more strategic, forward-looking business models and with continued pressure from new players entering the market, operators are having to continually find new ways to stay competitive. Employers across New Zealand are seeking to fill a diverse range of roles including Network Engineers, Fibre Technician’s, Network Planners and Project Managers.
