Off hand I'd say you would stand a good chance of getting work if you came out here. You could come here as visitors, do some job searching, get an offer, toddle down to New Zealand Immigration Service and get a work permit. See this link for how to go about getting a work permit -> http://britishexpats.com/forum/showthread.php?t=506207

Work permits can be valid for one to three years. If the permit is for twelve months or less there is no need for a medical report nor police clearances. However, if you go for the two or three year permits you will need to do the meds and cop shop report.

So maybe the thing to do is to come here, get a one year work permit, see how it goes, you know, see if New Zealand is the right fit for you and yours, and if it is a goer you could either extend your work permits or go the whole hog and apply for permanent residency.

Good luck.
