Do you want access to the greatest range of job opportunities possible? Do you want to improve your language skills? Then you should consider working abroad. UK nationals have full access to the job markets in other EU and EEA countries and there is even the EURES system to help you find work, so why not take advantage of the  vast possibilities offered by the European jobs market?

You could even consider going further afield and looking at working beyond Europe.  This has advantages and disadvantages.  Working in Australia, New Zealand, the U.S.A. or Canada means there is no language barrier, however there are visa and work permit requirements which makes access to these labour markets more difficult.

Wherever you choose to go you’ll acquire new skills, see new places and make new friends so why not take the plunge?
