We would love to support your operations with our flexible workforce


Our clients have specific and often fairly immediate needs and so everything we do is shaped by a set of working principles designed to provide an honest, open and genuine 3-way partnership. The contracting option needs to be comfortable, convenient, and effective for all parties.

As a contractor, you are an extension to the organisations workforce and when you join the Hardhat Contracting Team we will act as your agent to ensure the entire experience runs as smoothly as possible. We will guide you through all of the paperwork aspects, engage with the end client on your behalf, and provide  you with a clear point of contact for any queries.

Requirements to join

  • Full right to work in NZ
  • Great work ethic enjoying the balance that contracting on short term appointment offers
  • Strong communications both oral and written
  • Agile and adaptable to fit in with different environments and cultures – no two jobs are the same
  • Successfully complete the Hard Hat pre-qualification assessment

How often can I expect to be in work?

This is a question often asked and whilst we cannot guarantee you will be full time employed as a Hard Hat contracted resource, we do work with our clients to use tailored resources to meet their operational needs. Contracting is not for everyone and if you require certainty in employment, then permanent employment maybe the best choice for you.

Who do I contact?

Call the Contracting Team on 09 282 3156 or email info@hardhatrecruits.co.nz and the team will get the ball rolling with your registration and validation.

Our services are tailor-made and guaranteed.
