Trip Summary

See full itinerary

Perfect for first-time travellers to Europe who want to work and meet like minded people. This package includes all the essentials you need to get you started when you arrive, with a job interview before you even land as well as helping to set you up with short to long-term accommodation.

 

This package provides you with great accommodation and employment solutions both before you arrive and once you have returned from any travels you may go on during your time in the UK. This programme will help you create a nearly instant cash flow on arrival and help to arrange your accommodation without having to worry about the usual long leases and big cash outlays (deposit and up to 8 weeks rent in advance) that are involved and enabling you to travel rent free and return to without hassle. You will get both your employment and accommodation arranged before you even step foot on a plane if you wish.

 

Jobs Service
Jobs can be difficult to find in London, especially in the first few weeks after arriving. To save you from this we arrange a pre departure interview with the employers we have secured for you. You will be screened to ensure you fit their requirements. On acceptance you will receive your pre-departure job guarantee. You will be part of a team and work in either 5 star Hotels, Event crewing or furniture fitting as a start (See further details in ‘Extra Info’). Work in the heart of London and rub shoulders with celebrities at the hotels and events. Work can be arranged to suit all levels of work experience including school leavers as training is offered as part of the job.

 

*Please note: The pre-departure job guarantee is subject to the information that you provide being correct and the acceptance and attendance of any interview or job arranged by our in-country partners.
