The workers are interviewing for jobs through LookSee Build New Zealand - a website that links up potential employees with employers.

Hamish Price, who works at the website, said the workers are highly skilled and have worked on some major international projects.

He said a lot of the candidates want to move to New Zealand for the lifestyle.

Hamish Price said the candidates will be arriving this weekend, with a special welcome on Sunday.

Throughout the week they will have their final interviews for jobs, as well as take part in some sightseeing across the country.
