Our "Working Abroad” section details information about each Country (political, economic & geographic) as well as tips on how to set up bank accounts, social security numbers etc.
Working abroad to gain a new language, international work experience or to improve your chance of career development is a positive step. It is something that is best planned carefully.
The majority of our customers offer permanent contracts that are a minimum of 12 months duration. Companies may offer flights, accommodation and assistance settling in but this is not the case with all locations/employers.
