Hi Manzoor,

Thank you for your question. Although we do not have specific information about salaries in New Zealand, Working in New Zealand will give you a brief overview of the job market.

The New Zealand government websites also have a lot of useful information for jobseekers, especially this Salary guide and this Occupation Outlook page, both of which include median salaries for specific fields.

Hopefully some local expats will also contribute their valued experience.

All the best with your search.
