can anyone help?
 
if we went to nz for a 6 month holiday and either me or my partner got offered a job would we be able to get a work permit in nz?
or do we have to apply before we leave?

how easy is it to get a morgage in nz?
or is renting property better?

Yes, you can come to New Zealand and look for work.

In order to apply for a visa to work in New Zealand, you will need a valid offer of employment from a New Zealand employer. The offer must be in writing and contain the following information:


* name, address and telephone number of the employer

* name and address of the person to whom the job is offered

* a full job description stating:
- job title or designation
- the type of work, duties and responsibilites of the job
- any qualifications or training experience required
- the duration of the job
- the salary or remuneration
- how long the job offer is open

Applicants must produce evidence that they are suitably qualified by training and experience to do the job they have been offered, and that they can meet any New Zealand certification or registration requirements if these are required to carry out the job in New Zealand.

In many cases it will be necessary to confirm that the position can not be filled by a New Zealander.

You can apply from overseas or you can look for work here in New Zealand. Up to you.

It will be cheaper to rent in the short term...

Good luck.

Re work visa and permits what he said ^

Renting is certainly a way to go to start with. Gives you a chance to get a feel for a place. Make sure you get a periodic tenancy. That is quite important.

Mortgages are bases on your salary and any debt you may have. Yes, once in employment, it will be easy to find a mortgage. Easier if you have a sizeable deposit.
