Tradestaff Global has a great opportunity for an experienced commercial Concreter for an assignment in the Pacific Islands. We need a good all-round concreter who has the capability to lay a large commercial slab from start to finish.

The Basics:

  • 55+ hours per week
  • $50 per hour
  • Basic Accommodation
  • Assignment will last approximately 4 weeks for an ASAP start
  • Flights provided from Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin, Queenstown or Christchurch, plus work visas and accommodation. You will need to feed yourself.

To be considered you MUST:

  • Have relevant experience in a similar role.
  • Solid trade skills
  • Be hardworking and flexible in your approach
  • Have an awesome attitude with good common sense
  • Be physically fit due to the extreme environment

We work in some of the most remote areas of the world, if you've worked in the mines in Australia & PNG those camps are considered a luxury in comparison to the places we operate so you'll need to be happy 'roughing it'.

Exceptional fitness is required due to the long hours and extreme conditions, temperatures regularly reach 40 degrees with 85% humidity. Work is fast paced and everyone is expected to pitch in and help out other trades. We have an awesome bunch of people already working on this project and we are keen to find someone to fit into that team.

Applicants MUST meet the criteria below:

  • First interview can be done via Phone or SKYPE if living outside of Tauranga, but you would need to be willing to travel to our office in Tauranga at least once for 2nd interview/medicals/induction at your own expense (medical testing costs covered by us).
  • Have either a NZ or AUS passport for visa purposes for the countries we work in. We can also accept applicants with NZ permanent residence (with no travel restrictions) under certain circumstances.
  • Be currently based in NZ due to compliance/insurance purposes, logistics involved with interviews/medicals/drug testing etc. We don't accept applications from people who are currently in a role that involves FIFO overseas.
  • Have a clean criminal record (Police checks will be completed at interview).
  • Can pass drug/alcohol and medical testing.
  • Able to follow instructions and have good attention to detail.


  • Due to the high volume of applications we receive we only accept applications via our online system so we can manage them all. Please don't call or email to apply.
  • Due to confidentially agreements with our clients, we're unable to give out further information about the role (e.g. location) other than what is listed above. More information will be discussed at interview stage.
  • You must include a current up to date CV, failure to submit a CV with your application will result in your application being rejected.
  • Due to the high volume of applications we receive, it may take a while to respond to applications. Please be patient as you will get an answer from us about your application either via phone or email.
  • You'll receive an automatic email straight away if your application was successfully submitted. If you don't receive this email then we did not receive your application.
