World's biggest construction project!! Thousands of jobs for Brits in one of the world's best cities
The Emigration Group is urging construction workers in the UK to consider emigrating to New Zealand, where the country's largest city, Auckland, is about to embark on a $10 billion infrastructure programme which will lead to thousands of new jobs for skilled Brits.
New Zealand has some major new projects planned including a second harbour crossing, a city rail link and two other highway projects for Auckland.
Fulfilling these projects will create thousands of jobs and with insufficient local skills available, according to migration specialist, The Emigration Group, many overseas migrants will be called upon, presenting a great opportunity for Brits, in a city which has been voted one of the best to live in the world. And of course, these people will all need homes!
The projects, in association with Hawkins Construction, the second largest construction company in New Zealand, will create new hubs and train stations and have the full backing of the country's prime minister.
Paul Arthur, director of The Emigration Group says: "New Zealand is desperate for skilled construction workers to complete developments in Auckland and elsewhere. There have been indications that they have more than 23,000 roles to fill with overseas workers and this is a huge opportunity for construction workers in the UK who maybe struggling here. If you're a skilled construction worker - be it a tradesman, project manager, engineer or architect, you have a good chance of qualifying for a permanent residence visa down under.
"Not only are there more career opportunities for builders in New Zealand but the salaries they offer are often higher than what you get in the UK, not to mention the considerably better weather and lifestyle."
New Zealand has always been amongst the most popular destinations for Brits moving overseas. The Economist Intelligence Unit's report earlier this year revealed Auckland to be in the top 10 of the best cities to live in the world.
The Emigration Group offers expert advice to migrants wishing to move to New Zealand, providing a job placement and recruitment service, visa advice and support in helping clients through the relocation process.
