Who are we hiring right now??

As our team continues to expand, we aim to ensure that we have enough of the right trades and services available at all times. Read on to see who we’re looking for at the moment.

You will join a busy team of trades that span the building industry – on the team we have builders, electricians, plasterers, painters, handyman labourers, and plumbers/gas fitters.

Our core business is domestic repairs and maintenance, renovations and extensions. We have two project managers and a back office staff to help ease your workflow and make sure your day runs smoothly.

Our team pay great attention to customer satisfaction, as well as the practical aspects of their respective trades. We turn up on time, we communicate well with clients, and we clean up after ourselves. As a result we get truck loads of repeat and referral business.

This is a growing company and we are well established in our field since beginning in 2014. We are family-owned and Nelson-based.

For any of these roles, please apply in confidence to the owner, Bruce Farquhar, 021 816 598, or at bruce@trade-central.co.nz

Certifying Plumber and Gas Fitter

If you have proven experience in gas fitting and plumbing and are licensed with the NZ Plumbers, Drainlayers and Gas Fitters Board to Ceritfying level, we would love to talk with you.

You will have your own work van which you get to take home, plus a phone if you need it.

Pay will be commensurate with your licensing – if you are a Certifying plumber, or willing to reach that final step, we will be happy to adjust your income upwards.

If you are a Certifying Gas Fitter then we will improve you pay even more.

Experienced Builder

The ideal applicant will have proven experience in domestic building, particularly in finishing. We don’t currently do new home building, and so experience in framing only won’t be beneficial here. We do however do a lot of renovations and extensions, and so your finishing work is important. If you were an experienced/qualified roofer we would be particularly interested in talking with you.

In the perfect world you would already be an LBP, but it’s not essential. If you aspired to become licensed, for the right applicant we would assist you financially to get your license.

We will provide you with a work vehicle which you can keep at home.
