New Zealand is looking for Electricians who are New Zealand Registered and licenced, which for many overseas candidates used to be difficult to obtain while living outside of New Zealand - but not any more! Here’s how you can take the fast track to work in New Zealand!
Qualified Electricians are now able to attend the New Zealand Electrical Licensing Programme in London that will enable them to become EWRB registered in line with NZ requirements prior to moving out there, with job offers available in NZ if they are successful in passing the course.
The EWRB (Electrical Workers Registration Board) was established in 1992 to promote safety for all New Zealanders by ensuring the competence of electrical and electronic workers. The Board consists of seven members from around New Zealand, representing both trade and the public. Five members are registered electrical workers and two are lay members. All are appointed by the Minister for Building and Construction. Professional and administrative support for the Board is provided by the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment.
