Find Staff Now

Need a temporary construction team? Just one call to our experienced recruitment consultants and the problem is sorted. We’ve worked in the trades ourselves and know about the special challenges and demands presented by the building industry.

As a result of the 2016 earthquake, construction has been necessarily focused on repairing and improving the transport infrastructure in the region. Moving forward, the Kaikoura District Council successfully applied for development funding from the central government Provincial Growth Fund, with a view to the development of Kaikoura’s harbour, airport and marine activities. A popular tourist destination, as well as a vital east coast transport link – Kaikoura, is expected to see increased investment in construction activity in the years ahead.

Finding enough skilled construction labour can be a potential pain point for construction companies looking to build in Kaikoura. Max People can help even out your labour supply with their ready source of skilled construction talent. Talk to us in the early phases of your build, and we can help you get the staff you need to complete your project successfully.


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.
