New Zealand is slightly larger than the UK, and with a population of under 5 million there is less pressure on space and natural resources.  They don’t have the pollution, congestion and health issues found in many other countries.  New Zealand is stable, peaceful and safer than just about anywhere else in the world (according to the Global Peace Index 2019, NZ is listed as 2nd).

New Zealand has friendly, easy-going ways, relatively low crime rates and compact workplaces which means life is generally less stressed. With fantastic scenery, sweeping beaches, native forests and dramatic mountains what’s not to love?  New Zealand doesn’t have months of baking heat or intense snow; it is a temperate climate which means relatively mild, wet winters and warm dry summers.



The Company is going through a phase of tremendous growth. With a global footprint across New Zealand, Australia, UK, and India, they are respected and trusted in the market.

The Company offers visa sponsorship to New Zealand for the successful applicants.

They have an inclusive down-to-earth culture whilst collaborating with, and supporting, each other. They recognise and reward high performers and there are regular staff social events as well as excellent employee benefits, such as fully subsidised health and life insurance.
