Working abroad in finance is an excellent way to boost your CV and show future employers that you are a bit of a go-getter, not afraid of taking on new challenges.
You can work in places like Tokyo, New York, Shanghai, Hong Kong or Singapore, where you'll gain transferable skills and experience. These destinations will require that you have a working visa, nearly always sorted out by the employer's HR department or your recruitment advisor.
But what about getting temporary jobs in finance, leaving you with plenty of time to travel around and have fun too?
In Australia, if you are age 18 - 30, you can obtain a working holiday visa which will enable you to work legally in finance. At the present time the Australian economy is still in good shape, so there are plenty of jobs.
First off, apply for the working holiday visa, certain conditions apply. Gap 360 can obtain this visa for you, so call 01892 527392 to get started.
Once you know you have your visa, you can start doing research about job opportunities or you can book a Gap 360 Absolute OZ trip which includes job offers and loads of other very useful stuff, like setting up a bank account and tax file number for you. The Absolute OZ trip also includes a whole week of fun activities to introduce you to Sydney, and help get you settled in.
