Where can I find paid work abroad?

Picking your perfect destination is an important part of your plans to get a paid job abroad, as your choice of destination will influence your gap year plans. You'll need to know which country offers the best paid work opportunities and which meet your job requirements. Here are our top tips for finding paid work abroad:

Decide on your dream destinations

If you've always longed to visit a particular destination then you might want to fit your paid work plans around seeing your country of choice. With so many destinations offering great opportunities to get a paid job, why not combine your ideal job with your perfect location and really make the most of your chance to travel?

Where to find paid jobs abroad

Find paid work in Australia

Australia is the perfect place to find paid work abroad as the working holiday visa scheme allows travellers aged 18-30 to get a pass to work in Australia for up to a year. Our popular Absolute Oz jobs package offers one week of fun in Sydney and Beach Camp and 12 months of job advice and support. You can also find paid professional work in Australia, or work in some of Sydney's high-end hotels, bars and restaurants in a hospitality job in Oz.

Find paid work in New Zealand

Another favourite gap year working destination is New Zealand, land of the Lord of the Rings and home to some great job opportunities! With the same working holiday scheme as Australia, travellers can work and earn money for up to a year, while making the most of the adrenaline thrills on offer in the adventure capital of the world. Our Absolute NZ jobs trip is a great gap year programme, which make it easy and effortless to kick start your job search in New Zealand.

Find paid work in the USA

Take off to the land of the free and score yourself a hot job in one of the world's super-powered economies. Getting paid work abroad as an Au Pair is a must for any aspiring nanny, and if childcare is your dream job then living and working with a US family is the way to see the world!

Find paid work in Asia 

Thailand is a backpacker's paradise and going on your gap year to this amazing Asian destination is still top of many travellers to-do list. Try out some paid teaching in Thailand and gain your TEFL among the tempting Thai landscape, or earn a mint with a paid teaching job in South Korea. Gain your TEFL qualification and earn money as a teacher in Asia!

What's stopping you?

Don't be sucked in to staying in your safety net, it's time to take that first step over the threshold, let the wind take you where it will and see all the working world has to offer. You just have to decide where to find paid work - once you've decided on your location there'll be no stopping you!
