ENZ’s South East Asia regional hub office opened on 1 July to increase the number of international students travelling to New Zealand from this region.

John Laxon, Regional Director for South and South East Asia & Middle East, welcomed the opening.

“The opportunities for the New Zealand education industry across South East Asia are large, with 2017 student visas up by 24 per cent across the region.

“ENZ’s Singapore office will enhance ENZ’s operations across South East Asia, by adding several regional specialist positions to support our in-market staff.”

ENZ has five priority markets in the region – Thailand, Viet Nam, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines – and these are a key part of ENZ’s strategy to diversify the international student cohort in New Zealand. Students from these markets generated more than $360 million in economic activity for New Zealand last year.

Recruitment has begun for a South East Asia regional lead position advertised to manage ENZ’s in-market staff in Thailand, Viet Nam, Malaysia and Indonesia. 

What's in it for me?
