Congratulations!

1. It's your visa so you'll have to apply with your company supporting you. The visa you go for all depends how quickly you want to be in NZ.
If you apply for a Temporary Work Visa then these are usually granted quickly (sometimes within a week or two) depending if you have all the paperwork in order. If awarded you can travel immediately but you must travel within 3 months.

If you go for Resident Visa (not PR as that isn't available to you) via SMC with a job offer then that may take 5-9 months assuming all your paperwork in order, so will cause a delay.

2. If your paperwork in order, a week, 2 weeks, at worst up to a month. All depends how prepared you are.

3. 5-9 months. You still have to submit EOI, get it selected, a month for preliminary checking, up to 4 months for ITA and then CO processing time.

If you want to be here quickly I'd go the Temporary Work Visa route and then apply for Resident Visa at a later stage when in NZ.

Ok congratulations!
Just making sure you could walk before running as the saying goes!

So you're planning to come to NZ in September 2014 so in around a month ?

While you have the chance I would look through www.seek.co.nz and www.trademe.co.nz for suitable vacancies and just apply but ensuring you give the information that you already have a visa that will allow you to live and work in NZ permanently and that you have already booked travel and state when you will be available to see them face to face.

Next, once you've been through all the possible vacancies, research companies who you would like to work for and just send them a cover letter explaining who you are, your circumstances and that you are coming to NZ and are looking for work. State when you are arriving and that you will be available for face to face discussion. Attach a cv and post it out. Maybe even send a copy of your qualification certificate ?
This shows that you are taking the initiative by cold calling employers/companies.

Hopefully you'll have a few replies even before you set foot in NZ and you can then take it from there.

As for accommodation just look on www.trademe.co.nz
You'll not be able to register from overseas but you should be able to get details of the agents or private people that are offering rooms, apartments etc for rent.
There are loads of websites also.
Just google "rooms to rent in Auckland" or "flat share Auckland" or "house share Auckland" etc.

While you have the chance I would look through Jobs on SEEK - New Zealand's no.1 Employment, Career and Recruitment site and Buy online and sell with NZ's #1 auction & classifieds site | Trade Me for suitable vacancies and just apply but ensuring you give the information that you already have a visa that will allow you to live and work in NZ permanently and that you have already booked travel and state when you will be available to see them face to face.
