Hi guys I am have been teaching for 8 years and have been Head of English in a secondary school for 3 years now. My hubby-to-be and I are seriously considering moving to NZ as we wanted a complete change. My big worry is how easy it would be for me to get a job in advance of going. Having read some of the forums on here and spoken to friends who live there, it seems that the picture is very bleak. What are the chances of me at least getting a classroom teach job before I go? How would I go about it? I have heard that chances for promotion are not favourable towards immigrants to NZ. Is this true? I am very frightened about not only going back to being a classroom teacher but also about the financial impact that this would have. My hubby-to-be is not a teacher but his company would allow him to work from home in NZ if he was to move so he would be doing exactly the same job. I would really appreciate any help/advice than anyone could give me.
