The industry is actively seeking skilled engineers and other infrastructure workers to meet demand. There are many opportunities for Britons with relevant skills who are interested in New Zealand immigration.

"The challenge is to deliver at least NZ$20 billion (£7.3 billion) of additional infrastructure projects over the next ten years," explained John Wills, chief executive of InfraTrain, the national industry training organization for the infrastructure industries.

"However, a number of restraints on 'buildability' were identified - a key one being shortage of skills and labour," he added.

InfraTrain is running a campaign to raise awareness of the very real career opportunities in the infrastructure industry in New Zealand. "It is industry's role to turn this increased awareness into increased capacity," Mr Wills noted.

New Zealand needs skilled infrastructure workers: Anyone interested in applying for a New Zealand visa should complete the New Zealand Visa Bureau's online New Zealand visa assessment to see if they qualify for a New Zealand visa.
