With a wealth of experience, the right contacts and an ardent desire to make a difference, prompted Taranaki man, Wayne Parker, to choose a new career.
After two decades of work in varied but exciting roles within the oil and gas industry, Wayne knew so many genuine hardworking tradesmen currently out of work, many had searched for months, willing to move anywhere.
In October 2014, in a bid to help his conscientious colleagues and other hardworking tradesmen into new employment, Wayne started his own recruitment firm - Naki Labour Hire – a family owned business based in New Plymouth, with branches in Palmerston North and Christchurch.
Wayne and his team currently recruit electricians, engineers, construction workers, welders, fitters, labourers, riggers, scaffolders, fabricators, fire watch, safety workers, cleaners, painters and more. Placing genuinely hardworking candidates into decent, well paid and stable positions throughout New Zealand and Australia, this has been immensely rewarding for Wayne, who works tirelessly to ensure his contractors / temps are placed in roles where they’ll be valued and paid accordingly.
Every week, with his many CVs in tow, Wayne heads to various locations throughout the country to personally meet with his contacts, prospective employers and individual labourers in search of work.
