Australia has its positives: Sunshine and money are the biggest reasons why I like it over here. But NZ has more I think: More beautiful places, nicer people and you don't have to live in air-con in summer lol. Sure all places have their drawbacks and I'm thinking NZ has less. NZ to me seems more relaxed or laid back if you will.
I have been in Australia for 12 years - wife is Australian and have been working in IT for pretty much that entire time. I'm currently a Technical Consultant/System Engineer in Brisbane and was hoping to get the same sort of work in Auckland (city) or North Shore. I will be living north of Wellsford so it will be a long commute, but I commute for 3 hours already a day to Brisbane so its not a huge issue. I don't have a formal degree just the following certifications:
Citrix CCA (6.5)
My current role is a 'Jack of All Trades' and I'm looking for System/Infrastructure Engineering roles to match my skillset.
Who are the best IT recruiters in Auckland? Is it going to be hard for me to find work? I am currently on AU$80K+ and was looking for a salary or contract around the same level.
