“Your overseas counterparts know of Queenstown and that’s brilliant when running a business as it facilitates that instant connection.”
– ALEX WORKER
“Queenstown is the gateway to the world’s purest food sources and the furthest place from a big, polluted megacity,” he explains. “In a two-and-a-half-hour radius you can be diving for paua or foraging and picking your own delicious fruit.”
YEARS IN DISTRICT
There’s this cool Kiwi ingenuity here. If there is a problem to solve or an opportunity which presents itself, Kiwis just get on with it. In the US, it’s quite different.
People are interested in coming here to visit and for conferences and meetings. Our location has become part of our brand story.
Being here has enabled me to get out there and be healthy, spend time with the kids, set goals in biking and snowboarding and do multiple activities in one day.
We can help you find local talent
Our team of business specialists can work with local contacts and recruiters to set up a talent discovery drive, showing you just how much untapped talent there is across Queenstown Lakes.
Queenstown Lakes offers a growing talent pool of professionals from around New Zealand and around the world.
Queenstown Lakes residents are more likely to have been born overseas than residents of New York, London or Melbourne.
This suggests that the district’s ‘human capital’ is more likely to be working, entrepreneurial, qualified and international than the average New Zealand community.
