    Oh my goodness, Damy! I'm afraid I don't have very much 'experience' at all. Most of what I put on here is only pulled from the Internet. I haven't yet gone through the immigration process, so I'm sure there are many others who have better experience than I do. It's just a matter of coaxing them on here.

    Regarding casual work, you could put an advertisement on here and it looks like they might have some jobs as well. There are temporary jobs on here or here if you select Auckland as the area you want.

    Many of the casual jobs are in the farming/growing regions of NZ rather than in cities like Auckland.

    There are some temp agencies - I worked for Adecco and got some part time, intermittant work through them before I got a job at the hospital. I did things like stock taking, stocking grocery shelves in a store that was being redone, and filled in for a receptionist at a company while she was on holiday. I got a full time job, but they were working with people already signed up with Adecco to do road work, traffic control and drive trucks. May not be the best work, and you do seem to have to prove to them you are realiable, but you can do okay. Check online for temporary work agencies.
    Arrived in Auckland on August 6, 2008.Now live in Kawakawa with my kiwi partner.
    I just started working at Bay of Islands Hospital at the beginning of December 2009.
    Work permit renewed and good until June 2010
    EOI submitted and selected, case manager assigned and ITA received. PR application submitted 28/08/09
    approved in principle 26/01/10, PR granted and received 19/03/10
