The Workforce Central Dunedin Career Fair took place at the Otago Taieri A&P Showgrounds yesterday. Hundreds of pupils visited to sample a variety of potential construction careers.
A range of construction equipment was at the show, from cherry pickers to road rollers.
Workforce Central Dunedin operations manager Raymond Clark said the hospital would need hundreds of new workers, both locals and from out of town.
That was a lot of workers to find and there was a real chance of there being a skills shortage, he said.
The fair was a collaborative project between Workforce Central Dunedin and My Next Move, an organisation focused on helping people explore career options.
Twelve schools attended and about 30 businesses held displays.
The fair would continue today with access to the general public and the addition of food trucks, he said.
