Flight of the Kiwi:

International Experiences of New Zealanders Working Abroad




This research explores the variables that influence self-initiated mobility and the motivations of New Zealanders to work offshore. The research aims to provide detailed information on work mobility and inform on policies or management practices that might result in a more desirable environment to which people wish to return.

Please complete as many of the questions as are relevant to your current work and location. Depending on how many questions apply to you, it should take no more than 20 minutes. You can, of course, choose not to answer any particular questions.

All replies are confidential, and no one other than the researcher will see your individual responses. A summary report of key findings to date will be automatically generated at the completion of this questionnaire.

Thank you for visiting this site. I appreciate your interest and your participation will ensure this research is successful. Please feel free to refer this site to any other New Zealanders you know who are living and working overseas.

With thanks
