Working With Connell

Connell Contractors employ staff based in Hamilton and Auckland, some of whom have been with us for over 20 years.

It is important to us to continually up-skill our staff and we provide industry related subsidised training. We also provide our staff with the most modern equipment, which is owned. The smart use of this plant allows us to be innovative, productive and profitable.

We are Immigration NZ accredited employers.

If you would like to be part of a proven award winning team where your input is valued we would like to hear from you.



Connell Contractors firmly believes that you cannot expect loyalty, commitment and a good culture if you don’t reciprocate by investing in your people.

Connell Contractors acknowledges that great staff are the key to productivity and sustainable growth. While short term gaps can be filled with skilled immigrants, longer term planning requires a commitment to training young Kiwi’s.

Dave Connell was involved with a group of people who developed the Civil Trades qualification and went on to serve as the first Chairman of the Civil Trades Board. 

During 2018, Dave Connell achieved his Civil Trades qualification in Pipeline Construction and Maintenance through the Recognition of Current Competency process.

Wayne Collinson (Commercial Manager) and Parma Nand (Operator) have also achieved their qualifications through the RCC process. We currently have 12 Civil Trades apprentices.
