Fair enough but you wrote this

I am sure you do. However I was interested in your level of quals , PGDB license , work experience etc for a reason otherwise I would not have enquired and with a view to advising further.

That would be in relation to work, wages, expectations.

What rate of $ pay would you expect?

Are you a pgdb certifying plumber / gasfitter / drainlayer for instance?

I have already written about the area in which we live but we have been here for many years now so I may be able to suggest and advise.

Up to you of course.

That's OK.

If you can't, you can't.

We just want to settle enjoy were we live without arrogant locals
I'd suggest Nelson and Tasman is not for you.

I think Andygall may need to check the three assholes rules; if you meet three in row in a short space of time it's definitely not them that's being the asshole.

That's perfectly fine . I literally asked a question . I didn't want to get in debate about money , licensing , career goals , my question was a nothing to do with any of the above . I was asking a simple question about 3 specific areas to live that's it .

It's not like you live a world away from those places and you can check them out for yourselves; i think what you have shown is a complete lack of ability to engage with people that have some idea of the places you are interested in who could have given you advice but in a few posts you have clearly demonstrated that it's not Christchurch that is the problem and lost the audience here.

So you want to live in the UK then. lol I guess the closest thing would be Browns Bay in Auckland. Last time I was there it was trying very hard to be like a expat ghetto.

Otherwise pretty much everywhere else is full of pesky "locals".
