South Africa Roadshow 2016

In June 2015 Building Recruitment ran a highly successful roadshow of free seminars in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. The feedback was very positive so we have decided to do the same again.

Seminar dates:

Johannesburg - 5th September
Durban - 9th September
Cape Town - 13th September

Click below on Free Seminar to find out more.

As well received as the free seminars were, we found 2 hours or so was not long enough to cover everything in the detail required.

For that reason, we are heading back in September 2016 for a series of Workshops.

Bookings are limited so don't delay as you may be disappointed.

Workshop dates:

Johannesburg - 6th, 7th and 8th September
Durban - 10th and 12th September
Cape Town - 14th September

Since our initial seminars in 2015, Building Recruitment has successfully found many South Africans great jobs with very supportive and market leading companies and even better news is, for trades people, Building Recruitment are now employing people ourselves which is something we find exciting.

Click below on Full Day Workshop to find out more. Bookings are limited so don't delay as you may be disappointed.

We will be holding a free seminar in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.

They are designed as an introduction to life in NZ, do's and don'ts when looking for a job and hopefully help you save money and speed up the process of finding a job. 

You will also meet with a local Immigration consultant to answer any of your questions. 
This seminar will be for 90 mins and is FREE.
