    Default New Plymouth

    Hi everyone, I've been offered a job in New Plymouth ... I'm not on the skilled list, I've just been offered it by sending my cv in.

    Does $80,000 p/a sound like a good wage for a family of 4 (3 year old and a 5 year old old) to live off?

    Would we struggle off on this wage?

    Many thanks... Rink

    80k in New Plymouth is nice.
    Go for it if you like small/med town living with gorgeous nature surrounding.

    My mother-in-law, who is from New Plymoth, has said more than once she would hang herself before moving back.

    Have you been there? I would do a reccie before you make any decisions.

    $80k is good, will go a lot further than any of the big cities, but you won't be rolling in it (so to speak), depends on lifestyle... Just worth noting, many NZ households are dual income (it's the norm) so if your partner were to get a job it would seriously kick things up a notch...

    Never been, but would love to escape from the City I live in (Manchester UK).

    Hopefully by refusing the first offer I've not effected my chances.
