SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP FOR IMMIGRANT ENGINEERS
WHO WE ARE:
The Special Interest Group for Immigrant Engineers (SIGIE) evolved from an Engineering New Zealand initiative to provide training courses for immigrant engineers in New Zealand.
The aim of the group is to facilitate settlement of immigrant engineers into meaningful professional employment in New Zealand.
WHAT WE OFFER:
SIGIE will do its best to assist immigrant engineers in their search for professional employment.
We are trying to encourage New Zealand employers to recognise your skills and we do understand the difficulty you have in getting the “local experience” employers often request.
The SIGIE committee consists of 15 committee members from across New Zealand who volunteer their time to help immigrant engineers find their feet when arriving in New Zealand.
They design and deliver over 10 events per year to provide knowledge and expertise to their members.
SIGIE provides a strong network for immigrant engineers to meet new people and to share work opportunities. It provides professional development, employment and career counselling to support immigrant engineers to settle in to life and work in New Zealand.
SIGIE currently has over 600 members worldwide and offers great benefits such as full day workshops, regular webinars and great connections with other like-minded immigrants.
