Workforce Central Dunedin

Workforce Central Dunedin (WFCD) provides the construction skills and labour needed to help complete the New Dunedin Hospital build.

The New Dunedin Hospital is currently New Zealand’s largest ever health infrastructure project. This project, in conjunction with several other multimillion-dollar projects, will see the demand for construction workers increase significantly over the next few years.

WFCD opened its doors on 1 September 2020 and engages with the local community through schools and community groups, local industry and training providers.

WFCD ensures all jobseekers have access to the hospital build and that the main contractors have access to the local workforce.
