You can't just come over and start work you have to obtain a visa of some sort, be it a Works visa or Permanent Residency.
Being an electrician you will have to be assessed on your skills and get a NZ licence from what I have read on previous posts.
Your best bet is to have a go on the NZ Immigration website and see what points you gain on the EOI points indicator.
If you get over 140 you will be picked from the pool, which is fortnightly, and asked to apply for your ITA (Invitation to Apply) you fill in the forms and submit your evidence, medicals, police checks etc and that is evaluated by a Case Officer and checked by a secondary person and can take anyway from a few weeks on some visas to more than 3mths on others.

There are a few electricians on here so hopefully some will come on and give their experiences and advise
