Talent shortages are evident across a breadth of highly-skilled professions in New Zealand. Returning Kiwis are being met with open arms by employers who want to fill jobs with
experienced locals. Such talent can help counterbalance the skills shortage by offering employers the opportunity to recruit Kiwis with in demand skills and highly valued international experience.

So what motivates Kiwis to return and what is the best approach to their recruitment?

To help answer these questions, we contacted nationals living abroad who are either studying or working overseas, but thinking about coming back to New Zealand for their next career step. 635 completed a confidential online questionnaire in February and March 2015.
