Not convinced about coming to the UK on working holiday yet? Then check out these five reasons why it could be the best thing you’ve ever done!
You’ll soon feel like a local
A tourist in London usually has a few days to do a whistlestop tour of everything – Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge etc. but on a working holiday you could see these wonderful sights every single day. By staying here longer, you can really immerse yourself in the culture, and you’ll soon start to see what life is like through the eyes of a local.
Make new friends from all over the world
The UK, particularly London, is very cosmopolitan and draws travellers from all corners of the globe. On a working holiday, you’ll meet lots of people similar to yourself, and through the wonders of social media you’ll be able to keep in touch with them even when it’s time to go back home.
The UK makes a great base
On a working holiday you’ll still get time to yourself and if you still can’t quite shake off that travel bug then the proximity of the UK to mainland Europe means there are plenty of opportunities to discover other countries, many of which are accessible by cheap flight, ferry or even train from the UK.
It will look great on your resume
Whilst a few months of travel may be a great experience for you, it doesn’t necessarily have a place on your resume, whereas if you can combine your love of travel with some international work experience, this could be great for helping you take a step up the career ladder.
You can go RIGHT NOW!
Travelling around Europe doesn’t come cheap, so if you have plans to explore then you might take a while saving up before you are able to travel. If you want to go now, then by taking up a job on a UK working holiday, you don’t need to worry too much about money as you’ll be earning money in order to pay your way.
