Here to help in a growing industry

Population growth, rising urbanisation and high demand for both housing and infrastructure led to a New Zealand construction boom in the years leading up to COVID, which hasn’t fully abated in the time since.

The Property and Construction industries have been grappling with the resulting opportunities and challenges. The bump in activity needed to meet residential demand has been tempered by the issue of housing affordability, and the juggle of product supply issues. It’s proved challenging to consistently find the necessary talent to resource significant government infrastructure projects, while maintaining increased quality standards across sectors. 

Madison is here to help. Our dedicated Consultants know the market, and are focused on providing outstanding customer-service and delivering successful recruitment in this exciting and evolving space.
