THE countdown is on with the Worcester News Jobs and Careers Fair just days away at the Guildhall, Worcester, on Thursday, March 13.

One of the exhibitor’s at the fair, Canstaff, actively assist European jobseekers who are eager to experience the unique and enviable lifestyle of living and working ‘Down Under’. Canstaff have been operating for 13 years and are trusted across the globe, they specialise in helping workers in the construction industry to find roles with quality companies in Australia and New Zealand.

It has been three years since the devastating earthquake that hit the Canterbury region and the team at Canstaff have been integral to the post-earthquake rebuild. They have placed many workers into exciting city projects, residential repairs and new builds. As billions of dollars of insurance and government funding continues to pour into the Christchurch region it has become the most rapidly growing area of New Zealand. With a shortage of skilled workers locally there is a healthy demand for international talent within the construction industry for those looking for a new challenge.

Due to the local building boom Canstaff have many roles available for construction and engineering positions including tradies, civils, electrical, mechanical and project management work. Not only do Canstaff find the perfect job for your skills and experience, they provide a full relocation assistance package to help you to make yourself right at home.
