    Default More skilled (Kiwi) workers head overseas for the lifestyle

    More skilled workers head overseas for the lifestyle - 21 Nov 2007 - NZ Herald: The latest New Zealand Employment and Jobs News

    Quality of life has displaced pay as the biggest single influence on finance professionals weighing up whether to leave New Zealand.

    A survey of finance and accounting staff in 17 countries by recruiting firm Robert Half has found that pay is still the main reason for New Zealanders to actively look for a new job, but comes third after quality of life and family considerations when it comes to considering a job overseas.

    A director of Robert Half's Auckland office, Kim Smith, said the survey was "a real wake-up call" to Kiwi employers.

    "Skilled workers are placing a very high premium on fitting their jobs into the rest of their lives," she said.

    KH, I think I'll have to nominate you for Chief News Reporter when I fade out from here after I move house. I doubt I'll have Internet for a long time, as is the way here, so won't have time to dedicate to browsing the news (and a lot of other things, too ). You seem up to date with what's going on, so you'd make a good stab at keeping everyone clued up.
