The Electricity Sector in New Zealand has undergone major changes and where numerous smaller local companies were in existence, these have diminished resulting in fewer network companies and a highly competitive national generation and retail markets.

Attracting talent in this sector is exceptionally hard as regulatory requirements and professional registrations are mandatory and as a result, competent people are retained with little industry movement.

Hard Hat Recruits actively source overseas candidates for our clients in this field and work with other professionals to ensure competent fit and registration.
