Question Software Engineering in NZ

Hi,

I have a Software Engineering degree and have been working for a large electronic publishing company for the past 8 years. I'm currently looking into the possibility of emigrating to NZ (Christchurch area).

The first thing I want to do is find out what sort of salary I can expect over there. I know that it will be much lower than here in the UK, but it seems that none of the NZ job sites advertise any salary range with their jobs.

I am a senior Software Engineer, with experience of UNIX, Windows, C, C++ (inclusing visual C++), JAVA, Perl, XSLT, JSP, struts, web services and lots more. Can anyone give me any idea at all at what I'd be looking at earning in NZ?

Any help much appreciated!

Regards

donnynz

Doubt it. Most programmers get around that figure (unless I have been conned for the last 5 years :curse: ).

My last contract was 55$ an hour (to start). My last permanent position was 65K. I would consider myself a pretty clued up coder having 10 years experience.
