Live, Work & Travel in the UK

UK

 

Home to four nations, the United Kingdom has attracted immigrants for centuries. One of the big European economies, the UK offers work prospects to both eastern Europeans and, through reciprocal agreements, to Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians, Americans and many others from the former colonies. London, a truly global city, sucks in tourists from around the world, while its reputation as a financial centre makes the city home to over a hundred nationalities. Along with paid work opportunities there is a well developed network of volunteer opportunities that require no, or small, fees to join.
