It's best to set up your opportunities before you go, so you have a guaranteed way into work once you are abroad. The best way in to a reliable and reputable job is through a job package or established gap year programme, where you can get help with your CV, interview techniques and that all-important job search. Our job packages are varied and exciting, ranging from work in the hospitality industry, working with kids as an Au Pair in the USA, to specialist outdoor farm or ranch work, or educating kids and immersing yourself in a country's culture with some paid teaching work.

Don't forget, one of the most important considerations when conducting a job search abroad is finding out if you will need a visa to enter your country of choice. Many popular working destinations, such as Australia and the USA, require you to have a working holiday visa, which is available for travellers aged 18-30 and is easy to apply for. These usually allow you to work for up to a year which leaves you plenty of time for travel too! If you are heading to diverse destinations such as China, getting a visa is often only possible if you are signed up with an established company, so getting your pick of the best programmes will make sure you see some sensational places and get to earn money at the same time. Visit our visa pages for further visa advice.
Finding paid work abroad is your meal ticket to some amazing travel experiences as well as some serious skills for your CV, and finding paid work abroad is easier than you think. Don't flounder about on your own, unsure where to start, enrol in a gap year paid work programme and you'll find paid work perfection abroad and get the gap year working wow-factor!
