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?
Best of both worlds
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 the best of both worlds! If you want to gain valuable work experience while exploring incredible new places, then you should work abroad!

Another reason why you should work abroad is that 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 work abroad is the ideal way of funding your stay overseas and saving up to see the sights.
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.
Boost your CV
Getting work abroad is 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. If you want to show that you're a serious contender in the career market then you should definitely work abroad!
