Default Might be emigrating to Auckland - please help.

Hi everyone
My wife is in the last stages (agreeing on package details) of being offered a job as a Credit Risk Analytics Manager for a bank in Auckland.
We have been in Singapore since October 2010 with just my wife working and me being a house husband. My wife`s salary is very good but the amount of hours that she has to put in are well over the top. We have no time to enjoy life together here.
I am 57 years old and my wife is 46. I gave up my job in the UK as a machine shop manager so that my wife could pursue her career and for us to see a bit more of the world at the same time.
We are hoping that a move to New Zealand, with its more 'relaxed' life style will allow us to enjoy life a bit more.
Now you`ve got the picture, I have a couple of questions to ask.

What are the chances of me (given my age) of getting a job, to help with the finances? (I am a qualified Toolmaker by trade) and do you have any other advice?
Thanks for reading this - Ibanez.

Hi there and welcome to our cosy wee NZ BE forum.

I can't answer about toolmaking in Auckland as I'm a 56 yr old plumbers wife down in Nelson.

Just wanted to invite you on in and I hope you enjoy being part of our community .

Thank you both for the welcome. If all goes to plan and my wife accepts the job offer, we should be coming to NZ in September.
