Default How to get a job in construction?

Hi, im very new to this forum or any forum so im not entirely sure how they work so please bare with me, lol!
Me and my family want to relocate to NZ at then end of this year, i was wondering how you are managing to move without a job offer already in place?
My husband is a construction supervisor and has worked for Fitzpatrick Contractors Ltd for over 10yrs but we have been told that without a job offer there's no other way of getting a visa?!
Were both in our 30's so cant get a working holiday visa and are hoping to get a skilled employment visa but is there any other way?

Thanks in advance!

your best bet would be to look up the large construction companies over here, Fulton Hogan or the such like check out their websites for jobs or just contact them direct by email

You've made the three posts, so should be able to access it now.
