Electricians in NZ Urgently Required
It's no secret - New Zealand is a beautiful place. As well as breath-taking scenery, we have great people and a great culture, so it's no wonder that it's consistently ranked as one of the best places to live and work in the world.
Have you ever thought of living & working in New Zealand ? If you are interested, then read on below on how we can possibly help to change your life.
NZ as a whole is undergoing a construction boom across all sectors, and we find ourselves struggling to find workers across all trades to meet the demand. With an ambitious large-scale 10-year residential building programme now underway, New Zealand needs skilled workers across a number of sectors, so even if you are not an Electrician, don’t hesitate to visit the International page on the Tradestaff NZ website to submit an EOI if you have skills to offer. Examples of roles that we are looking for include Carpenters, Hammer-Hands/Skilled Labourers, Roofers, Plumbers, Welder/Fabricators, Joiners, Civil Labourers, GIB Fixers, Concreters & Formwork Carpenters.
It can be a daunting task to start life in a new country, but we have been bringing people into NZ for the last 7 years, and we can help in every aspect of relocating. Our branches have consultants who have also made the move to NZ from overseas, and we have an excellent support network to help make the process as seamless as possible.
Would you like to meet Tradestaff to discuss these opportunities face-to-face ? We will be attending seminars in the UK in November and the dates and venues are: -
