Employment & Immigration


The Trainers’ Association can help with sourcing staff. On the Employment section, there is a current listing of staff available and looking for work. If you can’t see anyone suitable on the staff listing available on the website, trainers can have their details listed on the Trainers looking for Staff listing, and an ad can be placed on your behalf on various Equine staff social media pages.
If you wish to be included on a listing for trainers looking for staff and have advertisements placed on your behalf, please download and complete the following document



NZTA provides members with a comprehensive and easy to follow pack for ensuring you can comply with employment legislation. This includes templates for documents that must be used (all can be changed to suit your requirements) - just click on the link below:
