Heading to the UK on a working holiday? We take a look at the best job sites for working holiday makers to check out ahead of their arrival in the UK.
Arriving in the UK and getting yourself set up may seem like a daunting prospect, but with a little planning and some local knowledge it really doesn’t have to be. Thousands of Australians and New Zealanders travel in the UK every year, with many supplementing their hard earned savings with short term work. By working side by side with the locals you can fully immerse yourself in the culture and really enjoy your time in your new home. To make things simple we’ve compiled a shortlist of the best sites to take a look at prior to getting on the plane.
Working with young people from a range of different social circles and backgrounds can be a fantastic way to gain some genuine insight into the culture of the UK. Helping to run summer camps, expeditions, and festivals is a great way to find short term flexible work that will also allow you to get out into the countryside and see parts of the country you would otherwise miss. For a full list of the opportunities on offer throughout the year take a look at their website here.
If you’re looking for some real variation and choice then backpaxtravel.com has everything you need. With seasonal vacancies in everything from running a hostel and bar work, to the tourism and education, the only difficulty will be deciding what you want to try your hand at first. Check their job section for more info.
For those looking for the backpacker’s version of all-inclusive you simply cannot beat the freedom and flexibility of a live-in job. Take a look at Indeed’s live in section or on Gumtree today and see what catches your eye.
The Working Holiday Club is also a great way to find work if you’re on a working holiday. Check out their working holiday packages here
No matter what you decide to do and where you decide to visit whilst in the UK, with a little forward planning you’ll be able to get so much more out of your travels.
