Applying from overseas
Immigration New Zealand requires that we must first look within New Zealand to fill vacant roles, and only where we can't find suitable candidates are we able to hire from overseas. Any queries regarding work visas should be made through Immigration New Zealand directly, further information can be found on their website - https://www.immigration.govt.nz/new-zealand-visas.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WETA WORKSHOP & WETA DIGITAL?
While there is some crossover in the work they do, Weta Workshop and Weta Digital are two separate companies with different skill sets.
The best way to think of it is like this: Weta Workshop is primarily a practical effects and conceptual design facility. We make props, costumes, artwork, vehicles, miniatures, models, and more, for a wide range of projects. Items you can touch, hold, stitch together, hand-build, illustrate, and craft.
Weta Digital creates digital visual effects for movies and television, employing visual effects artists, animators, programmers, technical directors, software engineers, and many more. Weta Digital has its own recruitment website, over at Weta Digital Careers.
Please note that Weta Digital has a separate recruitment website at Weta Digital Careers.
