Kristin welcomes applications from overseas candidates, especially in highly sought-after teaching positions like mathematics, physics and technology. Successful overseas applicants will be provided with a relocation allowance and support to ensure a smooth transition.
Kristin is located at 360 Albany Highway, Albany, 10-15 minutes’ drive from the Auckland CBD. To view accomodation options please visit TradeMe and realestate.co.nz for a guide to rental properties and houses for sale.
Living on the North Shore means that you can live close to beaches and still be a close drive to the School by basing yourself at one of the lovely beach suburbs, from Orewa down to Takapuna. Commuting from the south side of the harbour bridge is easy, since you’re going against the traffic, and buses run direct from downtown to the Albany Bus Station.

To teach in New Zealand you will need your NZ Teachers Registration. This requires your overseas qualifications to be assessed by the NZ Qualifications Authority and a clear Police check. You can then apply for a Practising Certificate. This process can be time consuming so the sooner you can start the better.
Once you have your NZ Teachers Registration you can apply for a work permit. For more information, click here.
We are happy to assist any successful candidate with their NZ Work Visa application. Kristin is an accredited employer with NZ Immigration, allowing faster processing of work visa applications. We will provide a letter of support at the time of your successful appointment.
