Sounds like a bad offer if you are actually from New Zealand but ??? what type of employment, what is your life like now? These type of salaries are usually given to asians from third world countries.

Sounds like a bad salary to me as well. I am not exactly thrilled with my salary, but it's not that low. You said technical job. Seems to me you could do better back home.

Maybe some New Zealanders can chime in and give you some advice. Usually the point in leaving is for a better salary, but maybe you just are looking to go abroad in general.

:rolleyes: That person has one post, please do not pay attention to that person, maybe a troll or something, idk. 10k with housing provided is usually about the minimum westerners take to live here. On 10k with housing provided, you wont save much but live ok.

They won't tax your income.

"Technical job" is very broad. Aircraft technician? Java programmer? Toilet Maintenance?

If you're a Kiwi, then don't bother even replying to their offer email. You'll never get that offer up to an acceptable amount.

If you're from the sub-continent and currently in New Zealand - then stay there, there is no point coming to a country which will discriminate against you in every way because of your passport.

If you are currently in your home country, and have marked your profile as from New Zealand for whatever reason, then you are doing yourself a disservice. There are two worlds in Dubai (as relates to advice on this topic on this forum) - one for westerners and another for people from Indian/Pakistan etc. The cost of living for each is completely different because each community lives different lifestyles. Mark in your profile where you are really from and someone with the same background will give you relevant advice.
