Xero has spelt out the offer it is making to British recruits, saying it will help pay for successful job candidates and their families to move to New Zealand and settle in.

The NZX-listed technology firm is looking to Britain to help fill some of the 160 vacancies it has for software developers at its offices in Wellington and Auckland.

Xero said it would also pay for a specialist relocation company, contribute towards the person's first month's accommodation expenses and give new recruits a free "city orientation" once they arrived.

The company said it was still very much on the lookout for local developers, but it had been hard to find enough of them.
