This job is no longer available
A fantastic opportunity to relocate to the beautiful country of New Zealand has arisen for talented and capable Carpenters. My client is a large principle building contractor working on the 15 year regeneration of Christchurch city.
They are currently working on exciting projects such as the main University, the city library, Schools and other interesting commercial and residential projects and a lot of the buildings in NZ are constructed with wood so carpentry is a highly desired skill.
They are currently seeking another 15 capable carpenters to relocate for a minimum of 1 year to utilise their skills on projects that appreciate the art of building with wood! With the regeneration scheme looking to ramp up from November onwards this is an incredible opportunity for someone to relocate with a job offer in hand.
You will be required to get your own flight out there and transport some of your tools but will be guarenteed work and there is plenty of project work to keep the right individuals busy!
December is a very busy month and it is apparently gorgeously hot weather out there right now....so come on!... what are you waiting for!
Please apply ASAP - those immediately available will be considered highest priority.
