About New Zealand

The lifestyle

Often the key driver for most people to make the move, you will find the way in which New Zealanders approach their work-life balance to be one of the most compelling reasons take the leap. Consistently ahead in quality-of-life surveys there are a number of ways in which you will feel the positive benefits of a life as a Kiwi.

The space

Whilst the land mass is roughly the same size as the UK, there are a fraction of the number of people. You’ll feel the sense of space, and with less crowded cities commutes are way easier leaving you more time to live your life to the fullest.

The relaxed pace of life

New Zealand is an easy-going country as a result of its uncrowded communities, low crime rates and an unstressed approach to living.

The environment

The purity and beauty of the landscape is famed worldwide with sub-tropical beaches, dramatic mountains, forests, rivers and more. Along with the favourable climate (warmer than the UK!) you will find that enjoying the outdoors becomes a far greater part of life.

The family focused life

Great schools, plenty of sport, peaceful and the second safest place in the world to live – New Zealand is a fantastic place to live family life to the fullest and a prime attraction for potential arrivals.

Daily walks down the beach will be a usual part of your Kiwi life
