Taupoelectrician is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Aus v NZ work availability

Hows the work situation for electricians around Adelaide, Melbourne areas, if anyone knows. Looking at commercial/Industrial installation work as a preference.
Currently in NZ, working in a saw-mill maintenance spark, miss doing the install work, not much demand for it where I am. Don't fancy Auckland as spend more time sat in traffic travelling to and from the million dollar shed.
Christchurch could be an option, but the lack of reward for living in an earthquake zone is pretty off-putting.
So any clues on the work situation across the ditch appreciated from people on the ground, as opposed to the chitter chatter I get from people here.
Cheers.

I'm in Adelaide and get various offers of temp work messaged through from different recruitment agencies, but I'm a maintenance electrician with FT employment so ignore them mostly. Would be happy to pass on agency details if you wanted.
