The RSE Scheme


The RSE scheme was first launched in the year 2007 in order to permit the industries, i.e. Viticulture and Horticulture to hire the foreign workers. These workers are chiefly hired from the Pacific Islands for seasonal work. The Scheme is very popular in New Zealand and is a crucial factor in the NZ industrial growth.


It also provides the tremendous employment opportunity and experience to the pacific workers and helps them send the funds to their own communities back home.


 The Horticulture and Viticulture Industry


The Horticulture and Viticulture Industry ranks 4th among the largest export industries in New Zealand. It has a target to enhance the exports to $10 billion by the year 2020. These seasonal workers in NZ play a key role in the industry that provides employment to around Fifty Thousand people in the country.


However, as per the conventional New Zealand Policy, in this industry as well, the foreign workers are only employed in Horticulture and Viticulture Industry, if there is no appropriate workers is available for that job.
