Tradespeople is a directory of women and gender diverse people working in the trades in Aotearoa New Zealand, who are available to help you with repairs, maintenance, or those projects you want done.

Founded by Emma Kaniuk, Tradespeople started as a response to a challenge my friends and I had: we’d love to support local women and gender diverse people when we wanted to sort something around home or work, but struggled to find them.

Only a small percentage of tradespeople in Aotearoa New Zealand are women — around 10%, with only 3–4% on the tools. They're talented, they're masters of their craft, and they are forging trails so that others can see that a career in trades is both possible and rewarding.

More than an online platform, Tradespeople is a social movement of support built around our community values. We encourage you to seek out local tradespeople listed with us and see what they can do for you.

Contact us if:

  • You are looking to hire a tradesperson and want help finding the right person for the job.
  • You are a company or individual and you’d like to be listed.
  • You have a suggestion. Tradespeople is a work in progress and we’d love to hear what you think.
