What sort of company is it?  Large corporates often have better salaries than people realise.

The problem with Auckland is that it is very spread out but with many transport choke points. None of it matters if you live close to your work. I have a 15-20 minute commute because of this. Others go from one side of the city to the other twice a day and live 3 hours in their car - go figure!

 

Auckland is a great place and that's why it's struggling with the population growth: everybody wants to move here. It's the only city in NZ that is of international city scale. The other cities are mere villages on an international scale.

 

Good luck!

Auckland is very expensive to live in compared to much of the rest of NZ, so the cost of living is likely to be higher than the average NZ living costs. You should probably check out what costs you are going to have.  Maybe it is best to ask them what the salary range is, before they ask you. As you say you don't want them to get you too cheaply, so you feel undervalued.  Good luck.

 

 

 

 

I often here people say this and I would love to know what is more expensive vs the "rest of NZ".  Excluding rent/mortgage and the fuel tax coming in next month. 

 

I am genuinely interested in what people have to say on this.

I don't think it's fair to exclude rent, because in my case that's a third of my total outgoings. So, rent alone should be a significant factor in choosing where to live.

 

In Auckland or Wellington your rent could easily be $100 per week more than in Christchurch or Dunedin even if you only need a one or two bedroom place.
