Absolute Immigration NZ: Supporting a Qualified Workforce for New Zealand’s Civil Contractors

Civil Contractors

New Zealand’s infrastructure sector is forecasted to experience exceptional growth. This industry makes a significant contribution to the country’s economy, recording over 17.5 billion New Zealand dollars according to Statista data on “Construction industry in New Zealand” for the year ending September 2023. This growth is fuelled by significant construction projects and ongoing development.

However, this positive trend presents a critical challenge: a shortage of qualified professionals. While employee numbers have grown, employers still struggle to fill certain job vacancies, particularly for tradespeople, technical workers, and supervisor positions. Since 2017, access to a skilled and reliable workforce has remained the industry’s single biggest challenge, as documented in the industry’s annual “Construction Industry Survey”.

Recognising this critical need, which impacts project timelines, costs, and overall industry sustainability, Absolute Immigration New Zealand offers tailored immigration solutions designed to support the objectives of the civil construction sector.

As members of civil infrastructure construction association, Civil Contractors New Zealand, Absolute Immigration New Zealand acknowledges the pressing challenge facing the industry and aligns its services to directly support these objectives.
