Construction Jobs and Careers with PGC

Kaiwaihanga mahi

More than offering construction jobs, we’re committed to developing career paths to grow our future builders, staff and team. 

Our company is built on having a strong internal family culture, which we extend to the families of our employees and the wider community. This means we’re always looking for hard-working, dedicated people who want a long-term career path with opportunities to grow their skills, knowledge and experience. We encourage and support higher learning and are committed to developing apprentices.

Why Work With Us?

After ten years working with children, Carmen was ready to take on a new challenge and a new career. She considered bookkeeping as the work could be done around her family responsibilities. PGC Director Paul Banister recognised her potential and offered her a position as Office and Accounts Administrator. As part of the offer, she was given flexible hours to accommodate her family responsibilities. Paul also offered to fund her study as a bookkeeper, to challenge herself to grow with the company and to enhance her skills. She says working at PGC makes her feel like a valued and supported member of a great team and community.

I have a mixed bag of construction experience; builder, architectural draughtsman, architectural tutor at EIT, trade student monitoring for the māori/pasifika trade training (MPTT) scheme at EIT. I was looking to work for a firm where I could utilise all my previous experience and skills. PGC has provided a chance for me to use the majority of my skills, and further develop new skills & other construction interests. During my PGC orientation, I visited a PGC building site in which I recognised a young graduate of the MPTT program who had been there since finishing, this would be 4-5 years on from leaving my position with MPTT. He looked well and spoke positively about his future aspirations. After seeing the grad and watching how he interacted with his trades crew and other managers, I felt happier to be a part of PGC.
