About the IT Industry in New Zealand

IT and Communications is the fastest growing sector in New Zealand, consistently earning IT professionals double the income of the national average. New Zealand’s reputation for innovation and our growing international profile has attracted steady overseas investment, while the New Zealand ICT sector’s investment into research and development is by far the highest of all sectors.


The number of IT firms and employees has also shown significant annual growth country-wide. The highest concentration of IT firms and jobs is in Wellington, where Computer Systems Design makes up 3.5% of all Wellington firms, and 5.7% of Wellington’s employment. Auckland and Canterbury also have high numbers of firms and employment in this area.


Alongside technological advancements, we have seen small and large companies alike transition to digital platforms.


Almost everything can be done online now, from banking to booking a haircut. The economy is becoming increasingly digital, so even companies that are not in the IT industry require skilled professionals to keep their technology functioning and up to date, and to keep their customers happy. The demand for digital skills is high across the whole economy.  

Demand for Skills in the IT Sector

As the economy continues to be digitised, job vacancies in computer system designs have become harder to fill than those in any other sector. In the latest MBIE report on the sector, employers cited that applicants with professional, technical, and computer skills were the hardest to recruit.

New Zealand Visas for IT Professionals

Because of the difficulty in filling IT related job vacancies, we have also seen an increase in visa approval for individuals who have skills in these areas. In 2015/16, work visas approved for software programmers, technicians, multimedia specialists, and web developers made up 62% of the total approved for IT occupations.
