Yeah I know, so much paperwork to do. Depending on job offers I may look to get in initially on a work permit then apply for residency from NZ itself.
Most of the jobs I'm applying for are around 95k - 110k nzd, I'm an IT project manager. Is this a realistic wage for this role? If so is that enough to provide a good standard of living? (will be renting to start with and have allowed about 400nzd per week for this).
I've seen Dunedin on TV here in the uk, looks nice but cold!!
I'm looking at Auckland or Wellington at the mo but I'm not to fussy, will see what I'm offered. I'll keep you posted.
You'll want 6 figures if you live in Auckland. Other centres are cheaper to live. I'm renting a 3 bedroom house for $250 a week. It would cost twice that in Auckland.
Check out it.seek.co.nz for jobs. I think we may have vacancies for your ilk at my place but it may be situated in Auckland or Brisbane.
