Work Abroad


Volunteer, Learn, Work and Travel

Working, learning and volunteering abroad is a great way to travel; we love nothing more than getting to know a new language, culture or environment and we've always believed in giving a little something back. For us, this is what travel is all about and we have hundreds of opportunities for you to work and volunteer abroad on your Gap Year, career break or sabbatical.

Why Work Abroad?

Why not? Jobs will vary depending on where in the world you end up, but working in a different culture and environment is always going to be exciting. Working abroad allows you to experience a country as a local, not just seeing the tourist sites but living the culture. Earn money to fund your travels, making your trip last even longer! Not only that, but working abroad looks great on your CV and gives you something to talk about in those job interviews back at home.


The Aussie lifestyle is envied all over the world, with its year-round sunshine, beach culture and vast landscapes to explore. Take on a gap year down under by working and travelling in Australia! For anyone still yet to get their working holiday visas sorted, you can add it on to the pack for just £349!

Where can I work abroad?

Although our most popular work abroad destinations are USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, you can work in pretty much any country in the world providing you have the correct Visa and documentation. Book an appointment with an STA Travel expert today to discuss where you’d like to go and what work you’d be interested in doing and we’ll hook you up!

Can I work abroad without a degree?

Of course! There are plenty of opportunities for those travelling without a degree, including fruit-picking in Australia, bar work in New Zealand and summer camps in America. Teaching abroad in some countries requires you to hold a degree in order to obtain a valid Visa. However, for the majority of unskilled, non-professional work around the world, all that’s needed is an appropriate working Visa.
