Answers to the question ‘Why are you leaving NZ?’
- Leaving when I can (14 months!) because:Not as progressive politically and socially as I had thought it would be. Can’t make enough money in my profession
Nothing here feels like quality (I have this sense of everything being cheap and unsturdy, no matter how much I pay for something)
- Hi from Sydney. We left Wellington 2 months ago, mainly because of poor job prospects. Other frustrating points: poor ratio of income to costs, lack of variety and low quality of goods. No city-buzz (although spectacular scenery to make-up for it).
- In this current climate I wouldn’t advice anyone to leave a stable job to come here, unemployment has gone from 12000 to 67000 they think it may have slowed down but more jobs could still be lost, I got made redundant in April and have been unsuccessful in finding work, have applied for over 100 jobs with no luck, it is not helping with the Kiwi first moto, although we have been here for 4yrs, intigrated into the local community, we are still immigrants……….Why do we stay????????The kids love it, but decisions have to be made, although I love NZ I would go home tomorrow.
It was a huge financial struggle living in NZ, job was not as decribed and totally mind numbing and boring….imagine if you can running around after your manager all day asking for something to do…. went back to the UK in 07 but couldn’t settle there either and considered moving back to NZ. Oct 08 landed a job in Perth, Australia….great job, great people, great climate, huge 4 bed house with a pool and the ability to save….Do miss the scenery though.”
