If you’re looking for a more balanced lifestyle, you’ll find New Zealand’s got the recipe just right.
It's why we’re consistently at or near the top of surveys comparing quality of life internationally.
And why three quarters of recent migrants decide they want to stay permanently, according to an Immigration New Zealand survey – with nine out of ten prepared to recommend New Zealand to family and friends.
Get a career. And a life.
Working hard and getting ahead is considered a virtue in New Zealand. You’ll find we’re a well-developed, connected country and we can offer all sorts of opportunities to advance and broaden your career.
But, New Zealanders believe life is for living. So what we do away from the job is just as important. Good living in New Zealand is about balancing an honest day’s work with social fun, time together with your family and friends and taking advantage of all the recreational opportunities and wide open spaces you can enjoy here.
You’ll find the pace of life here is less stressed. And there are all sorts of opportunities to get into the elements outdoors and be as physical as you want – from lazing on an uncrowded beach to getting close to nature in the bush or hooping it down a mountain bike track. Enjoying the outdoors isn't just a rural privilege - you can experience this lifestyle while living in our cities too.
There’s a lively arts scene with heaps going on in music, theatre, film and comedy. And you get a good dose of annual leave plus public holidays so there’s plenty of time to enjoy all the great things New Zealand has to offer.
You also get to choose the lifestyle you’ve dreamed of – whether it’s a modern apartment in a lively urban environment, a home with a garden and room for the kids to play, somewhere by the seaside or maybe a rural retreat. You’ll enjoy the food and wine here, and you certainly won’t miss those big commutes.
