    Hi Manks,

    Thanks for the reply. I currently work for a regional airport in the UK as a Terminal Manager. My role is varied and covers many areas of responsibility within the Industry.
    I was wondering if there is a recognised qualification in the Airline / Airport environment of New Zealand that would give me a better chance of gaining employment at a Airport when I come over with the wife and kids.

    Sorry to sound like a teenager on a career advice day but any pointers will help !

    Hubby applied to Wellington Airport Operations for a terminal ops job. He's got no terminal experience at all and still came a very close second (he's got LOADS of airport/airfield ops experience from the UK though - Manchester and East Mids). So I would say there probably isn't a pre-requisite qualification that is needed.

    You just need to keep an eye on vacancies at the airports near you. Be aware, though, airports here are pretty small, except for AKL and maybe CHC - even WLG is tiny.
