If you have landed here then we are assuming that you are considering a move to New Zealand.

A lot is made of the New Zealand climate, amazing scenery and beaches, safe family haven and the friendly inhabitants.

While this is all true and the lifestyle is second to none, the reality is that there are great career options available which will continue to expand whilst the New Zealand economy, especially Auckland and Christchurch continue their growth.

Below are some highlights taken from The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment

The New Zealand market is underpinned by low inflation, a low dollar and historically low interest rates – making it a great time to move here.
