Discover the real meaning of work/life balance
New Zealand is open to the world and moving forwards across all sectors!
There has never been a better time to discover one of the world’s most progressive and beautiful countries.
With a mild climate, work-life balance and incredible scenery, New Zealand offers the perfect combination of a modern lifestyle in stunning surrounds.
The warmest welcome
Kiwi businesses value skilled people from all over the world. A global pool of talent contributes to the nation’s sustainable economic development, injects the skills needed for nationwide growth and adds to its incredible cultural diversity.
It also helps fill the gaps left by thousands of young Kiwis who head to the UK each year on their ‘big OE’ (overseas experience). Naturally, Kiwis like to repay that hospitality with a very warm welcome.
Lower cost of living
You might think it would be more expensive to live in New Zealand. Actually, the average living cost is less than in the UK!
As an example, nurses in New Zealand earn more than in the UK, and recently received a well-deserved 14% pay rise.
Many skilled professionals can qualify for immediate residency
With the new ‘Green List’, a large number of occupations now qualify for immediate New Zealand residency.
Many other occupations can get residency after just two years of work.

Natural unspoiled scenery
New Zealand is a country of stunning natural beauty – from white sand beaches to prehistoric rainforests, and snow-capped mountains to crystal clear lakes. There are also glaciers, volcanoes, and vast open grasslands. No matter where you are in New Zealand, you’re only a short drive from the ocean and spoilt for choice in terms of outdoor activities.
New Zealand is a fascinating blend of cultures that mingle and thrive in a peaceful yet vibrant society. Kiwi language, food and art are all influenced by Māori tradition, which includes a strong affinity and respect for the land and sea.
World-class education system
New Zealand has an internationally respected education system offering world-class facilities. It produces some of the world’s top graduates, and qualifications are transferable throughout other countries. For children of people on work and study visas, public primary and secondary schooling is free (5-18yrs.)
Kiwis are naturally friendly and welcoming. They are renowned for their hospitable nature which extends to visitors from all corners of the globe. Wherever you go you can be sure you’ll be greeted with a warm smile.
Of course, Brits and Kiwis have always shared a strong affinity through heritage, sport, culture and business. So it’s not surprising you’ll fit easily into the Kiwi way of life.
New Zealand is renowned for fresh produce and world-class restaurants. As a country with around 15,000km of coastline, seafood is a favourite among Kiwis. Cultural diversity and culinary innovation have earned New Zealand a reputation as an exciting fine food destination for discerning foodies.
A kind climate
New Zealand’s climate is without the seasonal extremes of other parts of the world. Any time of year is a pleasant time to explore New Zealand’s wonders and is the reason Kiwis are so passionate about outdoor activities.
Peace and quiet
New Zealand is ranked 2nd on 2019 Global Peace Index, maintaining its position and name as one of the best countries in the world to live in. Lack of corruption, strong employment opportunities, high happiness index, economic freedom and an excellent education offering are just some of the factors contributing to its ranking.
