Individuals who have work experience in jobs pertaining to their skill and ability often look for a change when they hear and read of opportunities. Especially they choose places that have a good quality of life and a place that strikes an absolute work-life balance. The fact is where ever you may intend to Migrate you vowing to work hard and progress which happens to be one your prominent motto’s.
New Zealand is a well-developed country which is well connected and has several opportunities. All you have to know is to fit successfully into a Job; you should be prepared to adjust to the host country’s way of working. If you can carry a positive and “can do” attitude you will be accepted into any pioneering working platform. If you have the skills and you think you have relevant experience in the stream of construction. New Zealand is the place that is having the shortage for Skilled Migrant Workers.
The Government has identified the shortage of skills and employers are informed to recruit people from Overseas who will be an asset to meet the demand of skills shortage. Moreover, construction activities are growing across New Zealand especially in places Continue reading
Looking around the nation at the major infrastructure projects in the pipeline in all major centers, the housing problems in Auckland, the rapidly changing skyline in Wellington, the ongoing ramifications of the Christchurch and Kaikoura earthquakes and more recently widespread flooding in Edgecumbe, it’s not difficult to understand the noticeable surge in construction activity here in New Zealand.
Although beneficial to New Zealand’s economy, the rapid increase in nationwide construction projects has placed a strain on the availability of skilled construction workers. More specifically, construction professionals like project managers, Assistant Civil Engineers, site managers, supervisors, leading hands, construction managers and qualified Concrete Workers, Bricklayers, Insulation Installers, Electricians, Plumbers, Carpenters, Painters, Roofers, etc. – placing them in high demand.

The construction industry will need another 30,000 workers in two years’ time, according to an industry group. Civil Contractors New Zealand (CCNZ) said not enough people were being drawn into construction, which was expected to grow by 4.7 per cent, twice the national job growth rate by 2019.
One in five new jobs created between 2017 and 2019 would be in construction, according Business, Innovation and Employment Ministry forecasts.
Civil Contractors chief executive Peter Silcock said his group’s attention was turning heavily towards training and recruiting a more diverse workforce.

Is it a good time to be looking for jobs in New Zealand? Definitely – especially if you have the right skills. New Zealand was less affected by the global financial crisis than many other countries and employment has been gathering steam. There are some excellent opportunities for construction workers right now – and a lifestyle you just won’t find anywhere else.
There are two big drivers of construction industry growth in New Zealand at the moment – continuing population growth in Auckland and the after-effects of the earthquakes in Christchurch and the surrounding Canterbury region.
Thousands of Canterbury homes and commercial buildings were damaged and destroyed in the earthquakes of 2012 and 2016. That has been generating a significant amount of building and construction work – some 30,000 homes are expected to be built. Work on the commercial sector rebuild could extend for many more years beyond that.
In Auckland, the government and City Council have committed to building 59,000 new homes in reaction to shortages which have pushed median house prices in the city to rise much faster than the national average. Continue reading
