    Default Work experience

    Can some body explain me about the recognized work experience. It has been mentioned in application that work experience should be recognized. What is the concept behind this theory.

    SM11.10 Requirements for recognition
    Work experience is recognised and qualifies for points if it meets the requirements set out at (a) and (b) below:

    An immigration officer must be satisfied that work experience is:
    relevant to the principal applicant's current skilled employment in New Zealand or offer of skilled employment in New Zealand (see SM7); or
    relevant to the principal applicant's recognised qualification (see SM14); or
    skilled, because it required, or enabled the principal applicant to gain specialist, technical or management skills and experience relevant to an occupation that is included in the lists of occupations held at Appendix 6 or Appendix 7.
    Work experience must also have been gained in a labour market that is comparable to the New Zealand labour market unless:
    the work experience meets the requirements set out at SM13.20 for work experience in an area of absolute skills shortage; or
    the principal applicant has current skilled employment in New Zealand or an offer of skilled employment in New Zealand (see SM7).
    SM11.10.1 Definition: Comparable labour market
    Work experience is assessed as being in a comparable labour market if it was undertaken in one of the following countries by:
    a citizen or permanent resident of that country; or
    a person who had the lawful authority to work in that country.
    Australia
    Malaysia
    Austria
    New Zealand
    Belgium-Luxembourg
    Netherlands
    Canada
    Norway
    Cyprus
    Philippines
    Denmark
    Portugal
    Finland
    Republic of South Korea
    France
    Singapore
    Germany
    South Africa
    Greece
    Spain
    Iceland
    Sweden
    Ireland
    Switzerland
    Israel
    United Kingdom
    Italy
    United States
    Japan

    Work experience undertaken in a country not listed at (a) above will be assessed as being in a comparable labour market only if it was undertaken for a multinational commercial entity (including a wholly or majority owned subsidiary of such an entity that bears the same core name as the parent company) domiciled in one of the countries listed in (a) above.
    SM11.10.5 Relevance of work experience to qualifications
    Work experience is relevant to a principal applicant's recognised qualification if an immigration officer is satisfied that the qualification was:

    an important factor in the principal applicant being able to obtain work or continue or advance in the position or field of work in which they have experience; or
    an important factor in a career path that has advanced progressively from the principal applicant's pre-qualification work experience.
    SM11.10.10 Relevance of work experience to an offer of skilled employment in New Zealand
    Work experience is relevant to a principal applicant's offer of skilled employment in New Zealand if an employer considers, and an immigration officer is satisfied that:

    the work experience is directly applicable to the employment offered; and/or
    the offer of employment could not reasonably have been made if the principal applicant did not have that work experience.

    Hi ChrisMwn,

    I am new to this forum and I find this page very informational. I just want to ask re this statement:

    Work experience must also have been gained in a labour market that is comparable to the New Zealand labour market unless:
    the work experience meets the requirements set out at SM13.20 for work experience in an area of absolute skills shortage; or
    the principal applicant has current skilled employment in New Zealand or an offer of skilled employment in New Zealand (see SM7).

    I am on a post study work visa for a year and recently applied for a skilled job and the employer wants to know my chances of staying longer in NZ. I have tried checking on my points for SMC and reached 165 assuming an offer for a skilled job plus my 6 years work experience in the Middle East which is not under the comparable labour market list. This experience however is very relevant to the skilled job I am applying for. I want to know if I should include that experience in submitting EOI or it doesn't have value?
    Apologies for I am a bit confused...

    Thanks.

    Thank you for this prompt response. Appreciate it. Now it's clear. I want to ask as well re: ANZCO job description, is there any particular number of tasks enumerated therein that should match with the job description in the job offer to say that it is substantial for CO for his/her assessment?

    (I do not know if I should also post this question in another topic) Please direct me if not allowed.

    Thanks again.
