Electrician Positions 2017 - New Zealand

Our partners New Zealand Skills in Demand are seeking qualified Electricians for full-time permanent roles in cities such as Christchurch, Auckland and Tauranga. They offer a free service to place candidates in NZ roles. 

You will be involved in residential, commercial and infrastructure projects (depending on experience) – both maintenance and installation.

In order to work in New Zealand, you will first need to illustrate sufficient electrical qualifications and at least four years fulltime relevant work experience. The process for registration is overseen by the New Zealand Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB).

A CV is a must. You must also be able to provide written references and an oral reference will be taken as part of the process.

Permanent fulltime contracts are on offer. You will be “on the books” as opposed to working self-employed meaning you will enjoy 4 weeks paid annual leave, and your employer pays a levy to cover health insurance and contributes to your retirement savings scheme

Starting rate for qualified Electricians in New Zealand is $26- $30 NZD per hour and will increase according to skills, experience and qualifications.

You will likely need a vehicle to transport yourself to your worksite.

Opportunities are on-going and start dates are flexible – New Zealand Skills In Demand will provide you with relocation advice including visas, shipping, banking, money transfer and support before you arrive in New Zealand.
