After initial signs of growth in Q4 last year the Australian construction industry contracted again in January (Source: Wall Street Journal). With the recent economic downturn in Australia many of its construction professionals are leaving it’s golden shores in search of other career opportunities…many of them are choosing Hong Kong.
One of the attractions of Hong Kong is the social scene, which is excellent in Hong Kong with the Australian Association having over 800 members and regularly organising events such as; AFL grand final day, the summer ball and Christmas cocktails.
The second attraction is the fact Australia shares a great trade relationship with Hong Kong with some of its leading companies having a major presence here in a variety of different sectors such as; banking and finance, aviation and not least construction and architecture. Engineering and construction services are one of the biggest exports from Australia to Hong Kong (Source: Invest HK), and here at Maxim Recruitment we are helping to facilitate this.
Given the current construction boom in Hong Kong, many of the major players in the construction scene are desperate for construction professionals across all disciplines. So if you have decided it’s time to leave Australia and are considering Hong Kong send your CV to us and we can assist in finding you your new construction claims, engineering, project management or quantity surveying role.
Alternatively if your aspirations lie outside of Asia, at Maxim Recruitment we enjoy an equally strong presence in both the Middle East and UK markets and can assist you in a job search in any of these locations.
For any more Information, or to explore your career prospects further please get in touch with me or submit your CV via the Maxim website.
