Labour & Trade Jobs for Backpackers

Labour & Trade jobs for Backpackers in New Zealand

If you are qualified in a trade, then you might be able to find a short-term job in New Zealand, especially plumbers and electricians are quite sought after. However, you will need to familiarise yourself with New Zealand specifications, and a company might require you to go through a training course. After all, electricity isn't something you want to play around with. Because of that, most companies will prefer someone who can commit for at least three months. Builders and carpenters can find jobs in the area in and around Christchurch, as there is still a lot of work to do after the devastating earthquakes of 2011.
