Australia and New Zealand, the place to live!

Australia and New Zealand offer enviable lifestyle opportunities coupled with great career prospects for skilled migrants looking to enhance their prospects.  Both Auckland and Sydney have been rated in the top ten cities in the world to live according to the latest Mercer Quality of Living survey of 215 world cities.  The mild weather, celebrated beach culture and clean green environment, make both countries ideal for outdoor activities, and with steady progress towards economic recovery, both regions are well set to provide exciting career opportunities to professionals and technically skilled individuals alike. In fact a total of 56,000 Brits settled in Australia last year, while 20,000 permanent and long term migrants made New Zealand their home in 2010.
