where to look for jobs with no job qualifications

Hi there,

I am so glad to have stumbled across this site and am so hopeful that we can get some help from some of you here.
I was born in NZ, was raised in Ch until 19 years of age and then I moved to NZ again. I bought my husband over to Ch with me and we got married, had twins here and after 2 1/2 years moved back to NZ, where we have been now for 23 years. After returning to Ch for a holiday a few months ago, I came back to my husband and said that I would love to move back to Ch again. To my surprise he was all for it and we are now in the process of selling our house and then we hope to move to Ch by the end of January (if the house sells).
Here is our problem, neither of us have got qualifications that count in Ch. My husband has been an orchard manager for the last 8 years and I have been home with the children, but in the last two years I have been self employed as a cleaner.
I have spent hours and hours looking on job sites to see what kind of jobs there are available, but they all want qualifications. I do have some family in Ch, but most of them are pensioned and not in the work force anymore, so don't have many contacts anymore.
Both my husband and I are willing to give most jobs a go.
We would really appreciate some advice from you all, as I have to admit that I am starting to worry about not finding work when we get there.
We look forward to reading your posts. Many, many thanks in advance!!
