Current View

With thousands of Kiwis returning home to New Zealand, is the engineering sector really seeing the 'brain gain' we hoped for? EG Magazine finds out.

Covid-19 has forced some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s one million or so expats to return home. But are returnees hitting Aotearoa's shores in large numbers, and what does this mean for the country’s engineering sector? EG Magazine talks to academics and industry experts, including General Manager of New Zealand's Water business, David Hogg, Civil Engineer and returnee Fritha McCrimmon-Robinson, and Recruitment Manager for our Asia Pacific region, Glen Tarrant.
