Find Staff Now

Need construction labour now? Easy as—just get in touch with our recruitment team. The founders and leadership team at Max People all began as tradespeople in the construction sector—so we understand the culture, demands and challenges of the building industry.

The 2011 Christchurch earthquake and subsequent rebuild created an unprecedented demand for labour. This put pressure on construction companies looking to hire talent, as it can be hard to find well trained and hard-working teams. Today the focus is on building a skilled workforce that is flexible and adaptable to the needs of construction companies. New infrastructure projects and continued growth in the greater Canterbury region means demand for experienced construction staff is likely to remain high. 

"I've worked with Max People on two complex jobs now, and they have quickly become one of our go-to agencies. The quality of staff they provide is excellent and we can always rely on them to give us people with the right set of skills when we need them. The team at Max People are a pleasure to work with as well. They have fitted in with our processes and systems and are happy to adapt to our ever-changing requirements."

- Ali Daamsteegt, HR Manager, McConnell Dowell

A Safety-First Approach

The Canterbury rebuild has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we’re proud of the role we’ve played in construction projects across the city. Redevelopment projects can present all sorts of health and safety challenges and we place great emphasis on worksite safety. To help achieve our zero-harm worksite goals, we make regular site visits to heighten awareness of risks and hazards and incorporate safety education into all our activities.
