The dairy Industry is New Zealand’s largest exporter. It is a world leader in terms of production and technology. Although small in terms of land size, New Zealand is the largest international dairy trader in the world, exporting to some 140 countries. New Zealand’s dairy industry has excellent career opportunities.
New Zealand is a small country similar in size to England. With just four million people, most of whom reside in the top half of the North Island, it is a place of pristine natural beauty. The ocean and mountains are never far away and outdoor life is central to New Zealand culture. For the adventurous there is hiking, skiing, sailing, surfing, rugby and of course bungy jumping. Beautiful snow-capped alps, clear lakes, deserted beaches and geothermal activity as well as unique flora and fauna are very accessible as travel distances are relatively small.
New Zealand is a great place! However, many young New Zealanders choose to leave its shores to experience life overseas. To counter that, we are visited by many backpackers and tourists, some of whom choose to stay and work a while in their newly discovered country. The Maori people are the original people of the land. Around 150 years ago adventurers and immigrants from England, Scotland, Ireland, and China began to arrive. Today, New Zealand is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world with approximately 27% of the population born abroad. People of all nationalities are integrated into New Zealand life.
