Eligibility requirements for roles requiring registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand
The eligibility requirements for roles requiring registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand have been extended to cover people with a special purpose locum tenens scope of practice registration. The following four IT roles have been added to Tier 1 of the Green List:
Instructions have been amended to allow an applicant who has been offered a role on the Green List to be suitably qualified if they meet the requirements that the employer specified at the Job Check stage, or the current requirements on the Green List for their occupation. This ensures an applicant is provided with the most favourable outcome should Green List occupation requirements be amended between when a job check is approved and an AEWV application is submitted. It is effective from 10 October 2022.
Food Technologist qualification requirement
The qualification requirements for ‘Food Technologist’ in Tier 1 of the Green List has been clarified to ensure the reference to a level 7 qualification means a bachelor’s degree effective from 14 November 2022.
