    Default Hi All!

    I'm a 'young' 52 with a highly successful 30+ year background in the specialist areas of the Automotive industry (especially modified and racing cars).
    My abilities are both design and practical, and all of the cars I've designed and built have won their first races 'out of the box'.
    I'd like to continue doing the same in NZ, but will need a positive job offer before we can afford to make the move (we are looking to move to NZ as soon as possible).

    Few questions for those in the know:
    Which visa do we apply for?
    How soon can we apply for residency?
    Anyone got a job?

    Thanks guys

    Great site!

    There is auto racing here but it is mostly grass roots. So I am sure you are highly qualified and good at what you do but not much demand for your specialized skill set in NZ. Given your age and the fact your skill is not on the LTSSL (long term skill shortage list) it doesn't look good. That doesn't mean something isn't there but for sure not the best outlook.

    Maybe someone else can post something more optimistic. I am just commenting on what I see.
