About Us

The Labour Exchange has been operating for 20 years providing an efficient labour supply to the greater Auckland area. We have always specialized in the construction and civil industries and as a result we fully understand the safety and work experience requirements of our clients.

Our focus on safety and service has meant we have become the preferred supplier to a large number of major construction and civil companies. We pride ourselves on these strong relationships and ensure they are maintained by constantly visiting our clients’ sites and getting to know the site managers personally. This helps us to understand specific site requirements and means we send workers who are the best fit for that particular job.

The Labour Exchange is based in Parnell, Auckland currently has over 300 Good Bastards working daily on sites throughout Auckland. We carry out safety inductions to all new workers before they begin work and conduct on-site toolbox talks every week. We have also been Site Safe members since its inception.

We are known as "the Good Bastards" in the industry.  To us, a "Good Bastard" or "GB" is someone who is a great mate, totally reliable, honest, approachable, hard case, genuine, willing to go the extra mile and accountable for their actions.  We prefer to do business with "GB's" like ourselves and we celebrate this by giving out a "Good Bastard Award" each quarter.  To see who won this quarter's award, click on the link to our latest newsletter below.
