Christchurch has provided a boost in job growth, particularly for those with construction-related skills, recruitment agencies throughout the country are saying. According to Jason Walker of Hays Recruitment firm, Quantity surveyors, commercial and residential project managers plus machine operators with drainage and roading experience were topping a list of skills in high demand on Christchurch’s construction market. “Demand is so high that some skilled professionals are offered jobs within 48 hours of attending interviews”, Mr Walker said. Workers were not only being drawn from around New Zealand, but from Britain, Australia, Canada and even Asian countries.
