Thanks Ben! We have been reading the wages aren't as good as in the UK but that wouldn't be a problem, we are hoping to go job hunting in October but don't really know where to base our 2 week trip so will be hiring a car and travelling round? do you know what area he got work in?? kind regards Fay :)

Thanks Ben, yes I think Christchurch would be a good place to start our first thoughts were Auckland but most people say there's probably more chance of a job offer in Christchurch :)
