Do you want to work abroad and spread your wings a little? Maybe you are sick of your current situation or perhaps you want to be doing some travelling at the same time that you are working. Working abroad is a great extra component to add to your resume and it can be attractive to many employers and help you land that dream job you have desired for quite some time.

This is great if you want a job working in IT or as an accountant. New Zealand is a beautiful country and weather. There are so many mountains and beaches to visit which are perfect for a weekend visit away from work. With a working visa they last for 12 months elsewhere but more time if you are from the UK which is around approximately 23 months. In New Zealand they have a shortage of professionals in the IT and accountancy areas, so it is very easy to find jobs within these areas. Health workers that are happy to work outside the main city are in high demand. You can check on the Immigration website under New Zealand which will tell you of the skill shortage list. There are also other job opportunities for people seeking to work in a more adrenaline-based working environment. There are plenty of parks in both the North and South Island that have a treetop zipline or a variety of other outdoor team building activities. These places will most likely employ someone from another country as they will be able to better communicate with tourists who are seeking the service.
If working more abroad in the likes of ski resort, then Canada might truly work for you. Snowy peaks and Rocky Mountains are perfect to be surrounded by or maybe try your luck in the finial district of Toronto. If you can speak French, then you can try Montreal. If you are interested in films then there are available spots in Vancouver.
Canada is huge, and it has plenty of opportunities for the right job. If you are a UK citizen, then you can stay for up to two years. You will have access to the wonderful attractions of the next-door neighbour America.

There is also the opportunity of living and working as a live in nanny. Being a live in nanny offers you the opportunity to provide nanny services whilst experiencing everyday life in Australia. Many tourists choose to take care of children overseas but it is best to make sure you legally can do it before making the move.
