Can I apply a resident visa as a store manager from Hell Pizza franchise?
As per ANZSCO: No. If you are considering applying under Skilled Migrant Residence, then it is unlikely that the role will meet the ANZSCO requirements of that of a Skill level 1,2,3 role. (because Hell Franchise may have to adhere to service standards and policies set by head office including pricing and advertising).
Based on salary, claim of a skilled role: Yes, it may be possible. If somehow your business sales are enormous and the scale of operation is so large that your business can afford to pay you a salary of $37.50 per hour then you could claim that you are in a skilled occupation based on the salary despite being in an occupation which is at Skill level 4 or 5 as per ANZSCO. In this situation, the employer’s financial situation will be of prime interest for Immigration New Zealand.
Your employer could also consider becoming an accredited employer and then offer you a role under Work to Residence policy.
