Find Temporary Staff Now

Need construction labour fast? No worries - just get in touch with the recruitment team at Max and we’ll see you right. Our company was established by working tradies, so we know about the particular demands you face in finding good talent.

Dunedin has seen a big increase in commercial construction projects, and the Dunedin Hospital rebuild will generate a lot of work. The University of Otago has a number of renovation and build projects in the pipeline, and more enhancement work is planned for the waterfront. Add to this ongoing programmes for roading, transport and infrastructure improvements, and it’s clear Dunedin is in for a busy few years in the construction industry.

A potential risk for construction companies with building projects in Dunedin and Otago is finding enough skilled construction talent. Max People can help building firms through these labour pinch points with their ready source of skilled construction talent. Talk to us in the early phases of your build, and we can ensure you get the staff you need to complete your project on time and within budget. 

Safety is Number One

Any construction project big or small can present health and safety challenges, and at Max People, worksite safety is our first priority above all else. We aim for a zero-harm workplace in everything we do. Our team make regular site visits to promote awareness of construction industry risks and hazards. We integrate safety education into all our processes, right from the onboarding and induction phase.


What a team… I’ve worked with Max People on two complex jobs now, the most recent being the Bridge of Remembrance where teamwork and communication were pivotal. Max People integrated and worked really well with our team of engineers and guys on the ground – the end result being a great working atmosphere and no issues at all. I’m working down in Queenstown now and just waiting for Max to have a presence there, too.
