Why pick New Zealand?
New Zealand is the perfect place to work abroad. With Work/Life balance rated 2nd in the world and employees working generally 6 hour shifts to leave time every day for activity, family life and personal time, what more could you ask for?
All eight of NZ universities come in among the top 500 QS World University Rankings for 2015/16 and NZ is in the top 20 nations for the quality of schools, with their education system being recognized worldwide.
Smaller, less crowded cities and towns makes getting to work easier as there is no crazy traffic and much fewer people on streets (Auckland being an exception) meaning your journey to and from work will not take a chunk out of your day.
NZ’s temperate climate makes it idea for all the outdoor activities available all year round so there is plenty to do, see and experience after your short working day and, as NZ is highly protective of nature and the beauty of the country, there are mountains, lakes and rivers, thermal wonderlands, native forests, glaciers and beautiful open areas with magnificent scenery at every turn that will blow you away every day you are there.
New Zealand schools attract over 93,000 students annually from overseas so the schools are very diverse and other nationalities are very welcome by the friendly Kiwi and Māori locals so there's no fear of not fitting in and settling should be stress free and easy.
