Story: Workforce composition

Asian Banking Unit (2nd of 3)

Asian Banking Unit

This is the staff of the Asian Banking Unit at the National Bank of New Zealand in Auckland, which allows people arriving in New Zealand to do their banking in their own language. For over 150 years Chinese people have migrated to New Zealand to work. However, in recent years migration from a number of Asian countries has increased, leading to new job opportunities servicing the needs of this section of the population.
