Why Work Abroad?

If you've had it with searching the job pages and competing with the rest of the UK in interviews, then why not take a gap year, do something completely different and get wonderful work experience abroad?

A match made in heaven

If you have been dreaming of taking a gap year but don't want to neglect your career prospects, then combining worldwide paid work experience with seeing stunning sights is a match made in heaven! Getting paid for the privilege of seeing the world is a brilliant opportunity and one that really is too good to pass up. Weigh up the options... searching for work while the rain comes down outside, or filling out your applications while sunning yourself on a faraway beach? No contest! Whether you want to get work in an office or in hospitality, get active outdoors, test out your teaching tricks or seek out some specialist skills, then your dream job is waiting for you somewhere in the world!

Working abroad on your gap year

Money talks

If you choose to look for a paid job abroad, then not only will you see the world but you'll make some money as you go! If you have always wanted to travel but are faced with financing fears and the worry of how to fund your gap trip, then getting a job abroad is the ideal way of funding your stay overseas and saving up to see the sights. There are so many incredible job opportunities to choose from: You can work in Australia and live like a local, seeing stunning Sydney or getting outback experience. Or maybe you fancy yourself as a modern-day Mary Poppins and want to become an awesome Au Pair in the USA? Financing gap travel doesn't have to be a headache; with a paid job you'll have financial security, the freedom to travel and pennies in your pocket.

Taster treats

If you have a clear idea of the work route you want to take in life, or want to try a taster of new things, then you should consider taking up an internship, or becoming a volunteer abroad and gaining valuable work experience on your gap year. With a range of professional internships on offer, as well as volunteer placements working with kids, communities or wildlife, whatever your career path you can see it all if you choose to take up the challenge and work abroad on your gap year.

Strike gold

Getting work abroad on your gap year is like striking CV gold. Not only are you proving your job skills to employers, but you are showing off a whole range of other talents and qualities, such as the ability to take on a new challenge, travel independently, show a versatile skill set and gain work experience worldwide. It will also prove to your parents and family that you've thought through how to use your gap year to your maximum advantage, while still having fun and travelling the world. If you want to show that you're a serious contender in the career market then working abroad is the way to go! Leave your working worries behind you and create a win-win situation when you work worldwide. Why work abroad? The real question should be...why not!?
