New Zealand: wilderness on your doorstep

Stuff website has released a great success story of a Scot moving from Glasgow to Wellington. Miranda fell in love with New Zealand and opted for a change of careers, from being a successful PR specialist to a passionate baker. Can-do attitude, relaxed lifestyle, wilderness on your doorstep, are only a few of the incredible assets our country has. Read the whole story here.

Did you know? Wellington was voted as 'The Coolest Little Capital in the World' in the Lonely Planet 2011 guide. There is a wealth of things to do in our capital: strolling around Oriental Parade or Cuba St, visiting our largest museum, Te Papa, or Zealandia nature park, or if you feel in shape, you can walk up Mount Victoria to take in the picturesque views around Wellington.Under the Skilled Migrant Category, if you get a job in Wellington, you would also be able to claim an additional 30 bonus points for settling outside of Auckland.

A sound choice. Baker is a sound choice of career, as this occupation features on the Immediate Skills Shortage List and bakers therefore in high demand in the country. Job opportunities are good, and not only because Kiwis love fine food!
