New Zealand needs ten thousand workers in the coming years to help rebuilding Christchurch City, a city on the South Island of the country. The reason is the latter was heavily damaged by an earthquake way back in 2011.
In a news report by TV Patrol, New Zealand will open 10,000 buildings and construction-related jobs in the next 3 years. These jobs are open for migrant Filipino workers and other expats. This is because New Zealand lacks the human resource needed to rebuild its earthquake-damaged City.
The salary ranged from 100K to 300k pesos or 2800 NZD to 8500 NZD monthly, free board and lodging, plus other benefits and overtime. Salary is twice or thrice higher than in the Middle East. Migrant workers can also bring with them their families.
POEA and New Zealand officials, however, remind those interested skilled workers that accredited agencies should not collect any placement recruitment fee as it is against the rules imposed by the government agency. Also, it is advisable to go directly to POEA to know the list of jobs offered in New Zealand.
