Am I without hope?

New Zealand : British Expat Discussion Forum - britishexpats.com
Hello all.

I've done a bit of research and I'm worried that I've left it too late to achieve my dreams of moving to New Zealand.

I'm a 31 year old Police Officer and formerly a degree educated dog trainer. I've noticed both those jobs are considered skilled but aren't in any shortage lists. Additionally as I'm above 30 I don't believe I'm able to qualify for a working visa.

My plan would be to move and do any job I can find (I do have savings to live off) whilst I apply for a New Zealand Police/ Customs/ Borde Force type role.

From my initial research I think my only chance is applying for a permanent residency visa which I'm unluckily to get without a job offer (which I won't get without a visa?).

So... am I stuffed?

Any advice and suggestions is much welcomed and appreciated.
