Default Hello

Hi, just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Kelley, work in the IT industry, a native of the US and my boyfriend is a Kiwi living here in the states. We're talking seriously about spending part of the year in the states and part in NZ, and I'm reading the forums with great interest.

I'd be fortunate enough to be able to keep my position with a large US company and telecommute while in NZ, but have not fully researched the rules and regulations about my ability to do this.

Just thought I'd stop lurking and say hello. I'll continue to read with great interest.

Hi Kelly - welcome to the Forum. Lucky you, being able to telecommute - wish I could!

Keep us up to date with your travels...

Hi Steven - and thanks for the introduction. I guess you're in the midst of the Earthquake mess at the moment. How are things down there now?

Hi

My name is Honey and we're looking to emigrate. Our first choice is Melbourne, Aus, but we're starting to consider NZ too. We've two boys 4 and 2 and my husband is a senior manager within a bank. At the moment his commute is horrendous and we really just want to make a change in the way we live ours lives. We've been to Australia so we know what to expect, but not New Zealand, although my husbands brother who lived there for a year raved about it.

Any advice on where to start the job hunt would be much appreciated, I've started looking on the NZ immigration website, and have the list of accredited as we would have to come with a job in place for hubby.

At the moment it seems Australian companies are resisting somewhat taking overseas employers, is this the case with NZ? Sorry I've rambled, if there is another thread on this subject please point me to it!
Our house in the UK is on the market and we're really committed to making a move. Just where is the question...

Hi there - welcome to the Forum. Auckland is more or less on the same latitude as Melbourne, but doesn't have the season extremes (it is wet in winter here though!). All the head offices of banks are in Auckland or Wellington - so I'd start searching there. Look at ANZ, ASB, BNZ, Kiwibank, National, Westpac, TSB. Good luck!

I'm not sure if they're resting so much as feeling discouraged by the length of time it's taking to get visas approved. I think there were massive backlogs recently at some DIAC offices. It may be different in NZ but keep plugging away at both. Whichever country you opt for, I wish you all the best and hope you're happy in your move.
