Default length of time employer will wait

My first EOI rejected so I will have to get a job before I apply again. What is a
reason able amount of timer an employer will wait for you to arrive once offered a job- just trying to work timings out? I know when I employ folk here it's usual to have to wait at least 4 months for all references and CRB etc to be done. Would it be longer with all visa stuff to also do?

First of all your chances of landing a skilled job from overseas is slim.
In my own experiences and those of people on this forum, only the most desperate NZ employers will offer overseas candidates employment and then wait for them to arrange visas. All depends what occupation stream you are in and if those employers are struggling to find the skilled personnel to fill their vacancies.

With a job offer an employer doesn't really have to wait for that long a period.

If all is well with the candidates Residency application and health etc and with a job offer Immigration will make the application a priority and as such can be completed in 3 - 6 months depending on how busy they are and how soon they get through your checks.

There is also the option of a successful overseas candidate applying for a temporary work visa instead of Residency or at the same time - ie having two visa applications running simultaneously.

With a job offer a Temporary Work Visa can be secured in a matter of days, a week or two if all paperwork in place, medicals and X-rays completed etc.
This visa gives the candidate the chance to travel virtually immediately with the expiry of travel being 3 months.
These temporary work visas can be granted for up to 3 years depending on the contract length offered by the employer.
The candidate can have the Residency application ticking along in the background and when they transfer to NZ on the Temporary Work Visa the office handling the Residency can transfer that application to the nearest Immigration office in NZ.
