Looking for Bricklaying Jobs Abroad? Check this out!

It seems that emigration is a topic on everyone's lips these days. As the economy at home continues to struggle, the reality for many is that leaving the country of their birth and moving elsewhere in order to make enough to survive is the only option. While it's undoubtedly a sad state of affairs it does open up a whole universe of possibilities for the person concerned.

Although many countries will only accept permanant immigrants who fit certain predetermined requirements, usually ones who are qualified in a certain type of highly skilled in-demand work, many offer one or two year schemes to encourage young people from other countries to contribute to their economy.

If that sounds up your street but you lack the high-end qualifications sought by many countries to ensure immigration, then perhaps you some temporary bricklaying jobs abroad are the solution? Just like at home during the boom times, many countries are undergoing large scale infrastructure revamps at the moment, and require a large number of manual labourers in order to help.

Obviously the rates of pay and working conditions will very much depend on the country you decide on travelling to, but some of the basic requirements are very much the same for them all.

1) Ensure that all your documentation is in order before you travel. It'd be a shame to travel all that way only to be turned back by border security because you were careless when filling out your forms. Where possible, have them double checked by an official before leaving for your destination.

2) Take out travel insurance! Even if you're only going for a year, make sure you're adequately covered. Many countries have very expensive healthcare and an accident at work or at home could well end up costing you many thousands.

3) Check job sites regularly. There are hundreds of reputable job sites on the web, but the trick is finding the right one for your new country. Where possible check these thoroughly in advance to make sure that there are plenty of bricklaying jobs available abroad before committing to travel.

4) Document all hours worked. This will help to make sure you don't get taken advantage of! Write everything down and have a co-worker sign it. It's not going to be a watertight legal document, but it may help should your boss decide not to pay you your dues.
