    Hi Lewis,

    Hi Lewis

    Best places to live and work are pretty subjective of course. In terms of welding/fabricating and where THAT work is, Christchurch is definitely a good place to start looking. Plenty of construction happening here.

    If you do Stainless or Structural then area is kind of important but if you are a general fabricator then you should be able to find work anywhere. Qualified will get you more from what I have seen between $21-$27 around Hamilton area doing stainless work. I have been contacted from employers around here in Wellington to do Structural welding and that varying from $18-$25 but the jobs are temp. I hold a Iron Workers JIW card which is a Qualification for Structural Engineer ( Structural Fabricator/Rigger ) SO I still get emails from all of the CV's I sent out in mass before I got here. I have no idea about working as a Fabricator here at all. I work as a Mechanic since I had a Qualification in it also.

    I thought you'd made your decision, Christchurch.
