    Default Open Work Visa to Essential Skills Visa - Can I Keep My Job?

    Good morning all,

    I have an open work visa based on partnership until August, but my circumstances are now such that I cannot renew this visa, so I will have to change to essential skills visa. I am currently employed in a job that I enjoy. Myself and my manager are keen to continue my employment. But because I am changing to an essential skills visa, does that mean they have to relist my job to prove they searched for Kiwi workers? Is there any way I can obtain an essential skills visa and avoid this hoop?
