About Us

Established in the Canterbury region in 1996, founder Kevin Eder has built Tradestaff into an industrial recruitment force to be reckoned with. Now with over two decades of experience supplying temporary and permanent workers to the trades and industrial sectors, Tradestaff has grown to become the industry leader.

Tradestaff operate throughout New Zealand, but we see ourselves as being local in every market.  Our network of 12 branches cover almost every corner of the country, and this helps us stay relevant and focused on addressing regional skills shortages, whilst allowing employers of all sizes across the country to have better access to our services. Tradestaff is also extremely proud of its diversity internally and externally, which sees us employing workers of all backgrounds from all over the globe.

 

As an Immigration New Zealand accredited labour hire employer in the Christchurch region, we can bring candidates from overseas to fill skills shortages in local industries

 

Tradestaff is one of the first companies in New Zealand to be certified to The Recruitment, Consulting & Staffing Association (RCSA) StaffSure Registry. This helps you to know that you are choosing a reputable provider who has been independently audited against an industry-specific standard. 

Positions we recruit

Tradestaff has 12 branches around the country, and we have work available for Skilled Labourers, Builders, Carpenters, Electricians, Plumbers (including TA's), Scaffolders, Diesel Mechanics and Heavy Plant Operators. In fact, if you’ve worked in a trade for 2 or more years, it’s likely we’ll have something that suits you.

No matter what skill or trade you hold, Tradestaff can help you into a job you’ll love so that you can concentrate on making your dreams a reality. It is an exciting prospect for all those looking for the opportunity to start a new life in New Zealand.
