First of all, let's make something clear: it's incredibly easy to find work in New Zealand!
Do not pay anyone to find a job for you in New Zealand before looking for one yourself; it's a waste of money.
If your level of English is not so good, you will be able to find a job as a picker, for example. Just show up at any farm in the picking season and there is a good likelihood of being hired on the spot. If you're English is better, any hospitality work is open to you. It will take you 1-2 weeks on average to find a job. Of course, if you have a good qualifications and a good level of English, it's up to you to get any job. Nothing will replace the effectiveness of showing up in front of the manager and selling yourself. Don't let a placement agency do it for you.
