1000 workers sought for city rebuild
A recruitment team looking for 1000 people to help rebuild Christchurch's damaged infrastructure will be in Blenheim on Monday and Tuesday.
The team will be on board the Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team (Scirt) bus, which will be parked in Liz Davidson Place in Charles St from 9am to 3pm.
Scirt is a partnership between the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority, the Christchurch City Council, the New Zealand Transport Agency and five private companies - City Care, Downer, Fletcher, Fulton Hogan and McConnell Dowell.
They are responsible for rebuilding the networks in Christchurch, including roads, water, sewer and stormwater and are looking for recruits to train, work and earn in Christchurch.
All course fees are paid and training is finished on the job.
There are no minimum or maximum age requirements.
However, applicants must be able to pass a drug test, and have a full or restricted driver's licence by the time they are on the job.
People interested in the rebuild opportunity can visit the bus, watch a series of information videos and decide if they want to sign up.
