Sourcing temporary construction staff can be a pain— but don't worry. One call to our experienced recruitment team and we'll find the people you need. Max People was created by tradespeople, so we know about the unique challenges you face when sourcing good construction workers.

A combination of low-interest rates and a buoyant economy has resulted in the ongoing demand for residential and commercial construction in Queenstown. Sectors such as tourism and viticulture are ensuring profitable growth and increasing investment in the region. Massive demand for low-cost housing in Queenstown and surrounding towns is likely to see a burst of building activity over the next five years.

Finding skilled construction talent in a competitive market could be an issue for construction companies looking to build in Queenstown and Wanaka. By using Max People's extensive talent database, you can avoid these labour supply pinch points. Max People can help you get the staff you need to complete your project successfully.

Safety Comes First

Any building project can throw up challenges, whether it's poor weather or a remote and tricky work site. Worksite safety is our number one priority at Max. We strive for a zero-harm work environment in everything we do. We make regular site visits to promote safety awareness and integrate safety education into all our processes, to ensure everyone gets home to their loved ones.


Each and every employee provided by Max People has been efficient, enthusiastic and most critically, experienced to carry out the required task. We have used other labour-hire contractors on rare occasions where excessive labour-hire was required and the calibre of an employee provided fell extremely short of the standard we had become accustomed to with Max People.
