Fancy living & working on the other side of the world? Then we can make it happen! If you are interested, then read on below on how we can help to change your life.

You may have heard that in 2011, Christchurch on the South Island in New Zealand suffered a major earthquake. Since then, the rebuild effort has been significant and it helped to highlight a huge skills shortage. During that time since, NZ as a whole has undergone a construction boom, and we find ourselves struggling to find workers across all trades to meet the demand.

It can be a daunting task to start life in a new country, but Tradestaff have been bringing people into NZ for the last 6 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.

We require heavy machinery operators from all backgrounds that include, but are not limited to:

  • Experience operating diggers/excavators and other heavy machinery ranging from 1.8 tonne to 40+ tonne
  • Experience in construction, roading, services or bulk clearing works and prepping sections for construction
  • Must be prepared to assist out of the cab when required to do so, so flexibility and fitness is a must

Ideally, you will be or have: -

  • 5+ years’ experience & Relevant Qualification/Endorsements
  • 2 work references
  • 100% commitment to Health & Safety
  • Able to pass a pre-employment drug test

In return we offer competitive rates of pay, varied and challenging work, regular hours, as well as long-term opportunities.

If this sounds like what you are looking for, please apply today!
