New Zealand is seeking skilled migrants from the UK to fill thousands of jobs in the construction sector, according to Emigration Group director Paul Arthur. 12/10/2012
The boom in construction comes after the earthquakes in Canterbury (2010) and Christchurch (2011), with more than 10,000 homes expected to be built in the next four years.
In December 2011, New Zealand's Westpac Institutional Bank forecast that damage caused by the Canterbury earthquake alone would add around $20billion to construction activity in the country.
New Zealand immigration published a list of those positions in demand. Many are construction sector roles such as site managers, carpenters, bricklayers, plasterers and painters. Other jobs vacancies include chefs, nurses and social workers.
Mr Arthur said, 'Industry experts in New Zealand are predicting that they will need more than 23,000 construction workers by mid to late 2013. For skilled construction workers looking to further their career and have an improved lifestyle, now is the time to emigrate - there won’t be a better opportunity.'
The Emigration Group is holding two half-day seminars in Bristol on 4 November, covering all the necessary advice for those looking to move to Australia or New Zealand.
