Rebuilding in Christchurch has boosted national hiring expectations

by | Sep 26, 2013

Rebuilding in Christchurch, New Zealand, has boosted national hiring expectations to their highest level since late 2008, with just over a third of companies intending to take on new workers during the final three months of this year, according to research.Recruitment firm Hudson’s latest employment trends report says 33.7 per cent of employers plan to increase their staff numbers between the start of October and the end of December, an increase of 3.2 percentage points on the current quarter. The report said the overall increase was driven largely by the rebuilding of earthquake-damaged Canterbury, where civil engineers, surveyors, estimators and project and contract managers were in high demand. Almost 53 per cent of South Island companies are planning to take on new staff during the final quarter of this year, compared with 26.8 per cent in the upper North Island and 33.5 per cent in the lower North Island, according to the research, which surveyed 1035 employers about their hiring intentions.
