New Zealand Construction Industry Plans to hire 20,000 Foreign Workers

A new campaign has been launched in New Zealand to attract foreign workers. It has the aim of address the labor shortage, and also to facilitate the arrival of 20,000 people, to help in solving the problems faced by the construction industry.

Hamish Price of the website Look-See-Build, New Zealand said that Companies were now working to their peak capacity, and were facing difficulties in finding people to work in New Zealand. They want to move forward and look beyond employing people locally.

The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment has stated that there was a likelihood of the growth of 11%, in the sector, between the years 2016 and 2022. 56,000 additional employees would be needed nationally, and a fairly big share of them will be required in Auckland itself. There was a great demand for the recruitment of Facade Engineers, Civil Engineers, Project Managers, Project Directors, Quantity Surveyors and other skilled professionals.

Bruce Kohn, Chief Executive, Building Industry Federation, mentioned about the present shortages in the construction sector. There was a blowing out of project costs. A few contractors were not ready to take up assignments, as they could not guarantee to employ enough people to complete the projects. There was a real pressure to reduce the costs of assignments and complete them on time, he added.  Everyone was working hard to get the housing in Auckland, up to desired levels, but the skilled workers were available in a limited number only.  Several companies had put forth varying demands answering to their needs, and they wanted to ensure long-term sustainability.

Hamish Price went on to say that, they would focus on the UK, the USA, Ireland, and the UAE and take steps to connect people with local employers.  New Zealand will be highlighted as an ideal place to live, Mr. Price said.
