    Most IT jobs will be found in Auckland, and then Wellington, and 3rd will be Christchurch. There are of course, IT companies in other places too ... but these are the 3 main cities.

    Saying that, you might also want to consider where you want to live, because these 3 cities are widely different.

    Have a look on seek.co.nz and also trade.co.nz to get a good idea of what jobs are being advertsied and where,

    It depends on the area of IT to which you are referring. Auckland as a larger city has a wider base of IT work, Wellington, being a capital city, is strong in database type work, Christchurch has a strong development/technology base.
