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.
