New Zealand's Engineering sector is awash with career opportunies

The engineering sector in New Zealand is broad, comprehensive and awash with career opportunity as unprecedented levels of capital investment continue to flow into the sector. The Talent Hive partners with clients across a range of engineering disciplines including Civil, Water & Waste, Geotechnical, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic, Engineering and Construction Project Management, Quantity Surveying and Construction Management.

High Tech Manufacturing remains a key industry in New Zealand contributing about 15 per cent to the GDP nationally. Many New Zealand based R&D teams are driving innovation across the sector. Process and Production specialists are implementing cutting edge manufacturing solutions leading to increased demand for additional Electronic, Mechanical, Process and Production Engineers in all major centres.

Construction is also one of the largest sectors of the New Zealand economy, employing 7 per cent of the nation’s workforce, and this is constantly growing. The construction sector contributes revenues of more than $30 billion to the New Zealand economy annually. This is being boosted by the Christchurch rebuild together with infrastructure development and strong demand for housing in the greater Auckland region.

Civil, Structural and Geotechnical Engineers are urgently required to meet strong demand in Christchurch and Auckland. Exciting programs of work, scheduled for at least the next decade are providing interesting project exposure and accelerated career advancement.

New Zealand’s energy sector includes unique opportunities within the renewables space. Water and Wind present Engineering specialists with a number of exciting career options whilst increased government spending is boosting demand for Electrical Engineers and HV technical specialists.
