Hot jobs for 2013

PRESS RELEASE

Hot jobs for 2013

Residential Project Managers, Civil Project Managers and Structural Engineers are among the candidates in demand in 2013 with employers now planning and starting to action their hiring needs for the year ahead, according to the Hays Quarterly Report.

According to the latest Quarterly Report, out now and covering January to March 2013, pockets of shortages for specific skills remain in some sectors, including construction and engineering, particularly due to the continuing work on the Christchurch rebuild.

“Certain sectors of the market have become dependent on international migration. And we have seen that while employers are becoming more open to international candidates there are some serious hurdles for some sectors, such as engineering, where candidates are required to have New Zealand earthquake seismic experience,” says Jason Walker, Managing Director of Hays in New Zealand.

“However candidates already in employment are looking for better roles, highlighting there is continued confidence in the labour market, particularly for those whose skills are in demand. Architects, for example, appear to be quite open to shopping around for alternative options.”
