Hi there, finding work at the moment is reeeeaally hard. Even us Kiwis are struggling. In saying that, still come here! Finding work is hard worldwide at the moment anyway. Make sure you travel the entire country it has so much to offer. The only place worth looking for work is Auckland the biggest city, not worth sightseeing much in Auckland, but has the most work offers.

Make sure you're allowed to work here and you should be able to find something if you're willing to look hard. I'm keen on going to the UK this year so I hope i'll have luck!

Good luck with your travels and enjoy our country!
