Skilled workers desperate to get away from Western political chaos should check out New Zealand and its growing jobs market

Given recent events in both the UK and USA, skilled workers in both countries may well be considering emigrating in order to further their careers in a secure political environment. New Zealand is already popular with expat professionals for its stability, laid-back lifestyle and stunning natural beauty, and its economy is growing at a good rate.

Recruitment experts say jobs are out there for skilled workers wanting to emigrate, with thousands who’ve made the choice now settled in and building their new lives. The jobs market is strong and expanding, creating a variety of opportunities for would-be expats from the UK and USA.

It may come as a surprise to many considering leaving their home countries that New Zealand is essentially a trading nation, but is also a major international education provider. International student numbers have seen a huge increase over the past several years, with educational establishments serving students from major Asian nations including Japan and China.

International schools help students form long-lasting relationships in business as well as opening young minds to the importance of international co-operation. Relationships formed during and after the school years benefit the country and its connections with the international business world, and help draw expat workers to New Zealand.

Skilled professionals considering the country as a future home and place of work can be sure of friendship, help when needed and appreciation of the contribution they’re making to New Zealand’s prosperity. Expats with families can be assured the education their children receive will stand them in good stead in their future careers.

According to expats now working in the country, a move to New Zealand improves lifestyles, careers and family life, and takes away the stress of trying to cope with the problems now surfacing in major Western nations. A record number of emigrants are now arriving to work, study and live in the country, with Auckland, Waikato and Canterbury all favourite cities.
