I'm new to this forum & new to NZ (after making the jump across the ditch from Aus 2 months ago)

I don't have a tech job atm (after working as a BA for the past yr) but my job does involve a lot of social media, etc.

And... that's about it. 

Looking forward to making a 'meaningful' contribution, etc.

I'm from Melbourne too! 2 months in to my stint in Kiwi land (partner says "stint" probably not right word, more like "new life")

Are you in NZ now, too?

Didnt realise we had people from Aus moving here. According to the press we are all leaving NZ and going to Aus.

Anyway welcome much and enjoy your stint/stay.

Yeah, I'm just trying to even up the numbers by moving here! (met my Kiwi partner and have several Kiwi friends in Melb) 

Some might say I'm doing our nations a service, really...
