Jobs growth in Christchurch in 2012

This year has seen strong jobs growth in Christchurch and Canterbury.

The region had the third highest number of jobs listed on the website SEEK, during 2012

It also had the highest rate of growth of any area, at 34 percent, or 9,000 new jobs.

SEEK’s Janet Faulding says the Canterbury region continues to bounce back, with incredible growth in the number of jobs related to the rebuild of Christchurch this year.

The strongest sectors are construction, design, architecture and engineering.

Ms Faulding says people looking for work should consider Canterbury as a hub of opportunity.

One Response to Jobs growth in Christchurch in 2012

  1. Gabrielle McKee says:

    I am writing to provide an Introduction to my company – Tír na nÓg ‘Let’s Talk’ Boutique Language Learning.

    I currently have translations in Korean, Chinese and Japanese, more will follow as the need arises.

    I have a company which offers a language learning opportunity.

    You can check out what I do on my FB page and
    Linkedin profile

    You will see from my Linkedin profile that I have recently completed an MA in Applied Linguistics through Victoria, Wellington.
    For the past 12 years or so research has been undertaken into Language in the Workplace.
    It is not just having skills or even good quality English language, much more about ‘fitting in’ into a Kiwi workplace.

    I offer a learning opportunity to bridge some of the gaps.

    In the context of the Christchurch re-build I hope to reach employers, particularly those who will engage employees for whom English is not their first language.
    It is possible that this opportunity may be of interest to employers seeking staff, prospective employees themselves, and in the case of migrant workers, their families in the interest of streamlining the re-settlement process.

    The construction industry has one of the highest accident rates and it is possible that this could increase when workers are not able to ‘connect’ with colleagues or read signs in their workplaces.
    If you are able to assist in any of these areas or I can assist in your work, I’d be happy to hear more from you.
    Please feel free to pass on my details to those who may have need of my services.

    This is a very personalised service so the next step would be as my company name suggests
    Tír na nÓg ‘Let’s Talk’

    I look forward to hearing from you should this opportunity be of interest.

    Best wishes
