New Zealand Employers Seek Irish Professionals in Construction,Energy & Healthcare.

New Zealand employers seek Irish professionals in construction, energy and healthcare Working In Events’ global recruitment drive visits Dublin for the third time in eight months seeking skilled Irish professionals with experience in construction, engineering, healthcare and energy for opportunities in New Zealand.

The New Zealand Jobs & Seminars Tour follows Opportunities Overseas Expos in November 2012 and March this year and continues to focus on finding people to help rebuild Christchurch following a devastating earthquake in February 2011.

“New Zealand employers like Irish workers and have been very impressed with the skill base of the Irish workers that they have interviewed and employed to date,” said Hayley Roberts, co-founder and director of Working In. “Unfortunately, with Ireland’s unemployment rate at 13.7pc for the first quarter in 2013, the search for talent is no longer confined to New Zealand alone and Ireland is seen as a prime location.”
