Tips for working abroad in 2012

Are you interested in working abroad in 2012? Now is the time to start planning! Popular vacancies are snapped up at least a year before, and seasonal staff often return year after year to snap up the best jobs.

Here is a step by step guide to gaining employment abroad for 2010...

  • Consider the kind of role that you would like to do or that you are qualified to do. Ski instructors, concierge staff, holiday reps and tour guides are some of the most popular options. Bar jobs, restaurant jobs, cleaning jobs and maintenance jobs are easier to come by and require less experience.
  • Choose the country or resort that you would like to work in. British citizens are entitled to work anywhere in the EU, giving you access to a wide range of vacancies across Europe. Some of the most popular options are the Canary Islands, Ibiza, the Greek Islands, Spain, Italy and France.
  • If you want to work outside of the EU, you'll have to start considering your visa options now. Working holiday visas are available for British citizens under the age of 30 in Australia, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, New Zealand and a couple of other countries. Most of these visas will allow you to work for up to one year.
  • Start planning and saving! You'll need an emergency fund in case something goes wrong with your job, money for flights, plus money to tie you over to your first pay day. You'll also need to organise accommodation.
