I am searching for a fine woodworking/cabinetry or carpentry job in New Zealand. My foundation is in fine Japanese woodwork and carpentry. I have done everything from fine furniture, cabinet and door work to timber frame buildings. I learned through a 4 ½ year apprenticeship with a company specializing in traditional Japanese architecture and woodwork where a lot of joinery and refined techniques were used. My passion for fine woodworking doesn’t stop at the job site. I continue to study intricate carpentry layout and challenge myself with roof models at home. I also design using 3d programs.  I am not limited to just working in the Japanese style but it has proven to be a strong foundation to approach all woodworking and carpentry projects. I have also done work with natural building techniques such as straw bale, light straw clay infill  and cob.

I love New Zealand and long to return with my Family to settle down and start new roots. I met my wife in New Zealand while we were both backpacking in 2010. The country had a profound impact on our lives. Basically I need a full time (30hr week) job offer to be able to immigrate through New Zealand’s skilled migrant category. I am 33 and my family and I would like to Immigrate within the year 2017. We are German and US citizens. If anyone may know of a job opportunity that I would fit in please let me know. I am willing to fly to New Zealand to do an interview or whatever it takes. Thank you so much

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work - Edison. Tiny ad:
