Architectural Draughting & Design


Here at AP Design we are always looking for new staff – at all levels of experience, and making sure we have the right people in the right job!

We strongly believe in nurturing and developing staff, from recent graduates, to experienced veterans. You never stop learning in the building industry, and a passion for personal growth and development is something we look for in all of our staff.

If you are interested in a career in Christchurch, and tick the boxes listed below please email your CV and a covering letter to

What do I need to send?

  • A cover letter (either by post, or electronically) with your contact details.

  • A current Curriculum Vitae, showing qualifications, recent work experience, immigration status (if relevant) and a little information about yourself – hobbies, pastimes etc.

  • Do not send us a full portfolio of work. If we think we need to talk further we will arrange a time for an interview (either in person or via Skype) and we can view your portfolio then.

  • We may not have a position available when you email us – however we will keep your details on file and contact you when conditions change.

What are the non-negotiable requirements?

As you can imagine we get sent many CVs from people who are not really suitable. To save you time we can list the items you must have to even be considered.

  • You must live in Christchurch New Zealand, or at least be prepared and able to relocate here.

  • You must hold a relevant industry recognized qualification.

  • You must have experience in, and knowledge of the New Zealand Building Code, and related standards.

  • If not your first language, you must at least have a good level of spoken and written English.

  • We use Revit as our CAD package. Some familiarity with this is good, but not essential.
