• Pointer Remote NZ for upskilling

    For communities, organisations & people in Aotearoa

Leveraging and accessing remote work in New Zealand

The way we work has changed and the global uptake of remote work has levelled the playing field for people everywhere. As 'work from anywhere' becomes mainstream, the successful transition to remote or flexible work for businesses and individuals requires support.


Pointer Remote NZ's 'Doing Work Differently' Programme is free* for participants to take part in and aim to support businesses and individuals to upskill in managing and working remotely.

Program Aims 

The 'Doing Work Differently' Programme supports businesses and individuals to grow and be sustainable. They assist in attracting and retaining populations by supporting locals to stay and encouraging others to bring a remote job with them to the regions.

For Businesses 

Build capacity in business owners to use  remote work to attract and retain skills and talent, in turn helping to grow and engage more employees ‘on the ground’

For Individuals 

 Build the skills of underemployed, unemployed or displaced professional workers who live in the regions and are seeking work within remote-based workplaces.
