Life in New Zealand
The life in New Zealand is very different from that one to which the average Briton is accustomed. The spite of that there are plenty of us going to the country of geysers and volcanoes. Hundreds of immigrants are willing to do anything to stay there forever. But why and what makes people to leave their homeland?
Work In NZ
Most immigrants run primarily on low wages which can be compared to earnings in the UK. In some cases they are even a bit lower. Of course, the amount of money received, after tax, for the work is somewhat different from the one that an ordinary clerk receives somewhere in London, but comparing the living standards and the level of the monthly salary itself we come to the sad conclusion – each moth you run short of money in the United Kingdom as well as in NZ.
The decent salary in New Zealand is about 1500 Euro, but the money can hardly pay utility bills, buy food, pay off the loan, and pay the rental for an apartment or room. If you lucky you can go a few times for a cafe, drink or to the restaurant. You will struggle to put some money aside. You should consider moving to New Zealand very carefully.
The work in NZ is easy, but only if you appeal to specialized job agencies. You have to speak English perfectly and have a rare profession. In all other cases the immigrants have to sweat a lot before they get a job. Also without a good education and work experience they have to take what they are offered. All newcomers work as dishwashers or janitors, as it is not possible to get anything better without special skills and high school diplomas.
The route of promotion within a company is not as easy and quick as in the UK. All the management positions are occupied by New Zealanders. An ordinary clerk usually gets promoted or gets a pay rise once every 10 years if works perfectly without making any problems.
Housing in NZ
Speaking of housing there is no problem with renting. In New Zealand you can always find a room, apartment or a private house. However the living conditions in local houses are totally different from those in Great Britain. All newcomers have difficulties with it, in the truest sense of the word.
Houses are cold and uncomfortable, in most cases with no electric heating. When organizing cheap removals to New Zealand do not forget to take worm clothes. Fortunately you can enjoy the hot water, but the bill for all these "fun" is quite significant. Apartments, however, are a bit more acceptable to live in. There is much warmer. Unfortunately along with the higher standard the rent increases too, but the comfort always took good money. The more you pay the more you get.
Buying a house or an apartment in NZ is as simple as a cup of coffee which makes the life a lot of easier. If you have the money you can buy a house in just one day. If you do not you can still buy it, but on the credit. However to get a mortgage from a bank is more difficult, but it is a different story. The housing costs on the real estate market are very impressive.
For example a 100 square meters two-bedroom apartment will cost in the range of 300 thousand Euros, and a private home with the same living area about 500 thousand, but this is not the final cost it is just the beginning. There are a lot of taxes and fees to be paid when buying a home. So you have to be careful. It is advisable to get a professional assistance so you know with what amount you will end up. Please remember we specialize in cheap shipping to New Zealand from UK and can provide many additional services.
The education in NZ is just great! There are 8 universities, 20 polytechnics and all this for only 4 million inhabitants. The tuition for the Bachelor of Art/Science degree costs 10-13 thousand dollars and for a Master's degree about 17 000, which is almost two times lower than in the U.S. or England. Besides, the cost of living on campus is readily available. Even for those students who do not have any permanent income.
Unfortunately New Zealanders belong to the group of nations that are not friendly to immigrants and do not like seasonal workers. Only the tourists are tolerated in some way. In the evening, the local peasants gather in pubs for a pint, but to see a drunk on the street in a town or city or in the country is almost impossible. New Zealanders do not like smoking. The promotion of a healthy living is very common among the young and older people. The tobacco prices are relatively high but still there are a few people with a cigar in their mouths.
Women who live on the contrary tend to self-development and to prove their worth in every way - in the country many managers are female and it is said that New Zealand is a paradise for feminists. Men are little traders, while women tend to lead always and everywhere, even while making decisions.
In terms of entertainment, local residents do not differ much from the British. They like to sit in a coffee shops or bars, go to the theatre or opera. They also like clubbing or simply going for a walk.
The fans of extreme sports may well live out their fantasies on the New Zealand soil. For example they can: ski, snowboard, sled, leave for the seaside, dress possums, walk among the geysers, in general, to find something for your taste is quite real. If you have any winter sport equipment we will be happy to send it for you.
Overall New Zealand is a country of many tastes. People keep coming here for the beautiful lakes and rivers, huge volcanoes and geysers, and just for fun, for the life of those who are far away.
