I'm hoping to save £3000 for my working holiday,all I can really afford, and it will be tough, I plan to get a job as soon as I arrive, I want to get into work straight away....
My main point will this be enough based on anyone's expierence?
And how much did you take?
Ps I'm heading to New Zealand, chricthurch, Canterbury

Hiya I no this website is for Australia but you might find it helpful still, New Zealand prices won't be too dissimilar I wouldn't have thought :)

I think with £3000 you'll be okay for about 2 months to find work in, which should be enough time, depends how u spend ur money in guess :)
