For the majority of travellers who spend their working holiday in the UK, landing a temporary job will suit them down to the ground. With the main goal to earn money to fund the remainder of your travels, a temporary position can allow you to work hard, gain experience and reward without being tied down to something more permanent.
There are a wide range of positions that may be suitable for working travellers whether you are wishing to work in a cosmopolitan city hub such as London or Manchester, or you’re looking outside of the cities to discover the ‘real’ England!
Whilst you may choose to wait until arrival to secure yourself a job, many working travellers already have their roles secured, as well as accommodation meaning that all you need to worry about is booking your flight and packing your suitcase. Once you’re here, everything is set up and you can crack on with earning that all important travel money.
If you are wanting to look for a job before travelling then it’s wise to take a look at some temp agencies online who specialise in finding work for travellers:
