Hi

I've just been really stupid and lost my driving licence for 18 months.. long story!!

Anyways, I was wandering how easy it was to find work in New Zealand, as am thinking of spending 12 months of my ban there! I have already had a working visa for australia. Is the new zealand one similar? I currently work for a bank, so would be looking for a job in finance or a clerical background, preferrably longer than the 3 months allowed in australia.

Any help or advice would be most welcome

It is. Just as easy to get, and since you're from the UK, you can stay up to 23 months (with medical certification, 12 months without), working for a total period of not more than 12 months. details here.

plenty of work around but in your field i would look at christchurch or auckland (i dont really rate wellington) as will be more opportunities. personally i prefer chch as theres more outdoor stuff bu if your after more of a city feel then go for auckland
