Yes, as the current policy stands you should be able to apply for and later extend work permits indefinitely. Do be aware that the job offers have to be on the skill shortages lists (immediate or long-term lists) or the prospective employer needs to show immigration that a reasonable effort has been made to hire local Kiwis but none could be found and that you have the skills, qualifications and experience to do the job. Also, after the first year you will need to have your medicals done including an X-ray and have a police clearance from your home country done as well.

Good luck.

the WHV is a two year visa.
after two years you will have to qualify for a workpermit or PR in your own right if you want to stay longer than two years.
so my advice would be to see what you need to qualify for pr in two years time and get your ducks in a row whilst working on the WHV so you qualify when the two years are up. alternatively look to see if any employers will take you on permanently during the two years you are here on a WHV and apply for a Work Permit on your behalf.

Dont wait until 1 year 11 months are up then start scurrying around trying to sort out visas to enable you to stay would be my advice
