Britain is the third largest economy in Europe, providing job opportunities to millions of people. With a wide range of industries and job prospects within the UK, there is a massive opening to all nationalities seeking to gain employment.
Some of the vibrant cities such as London, Birmingham and Manchester are great places to live, work and build a long lasting career. The U.K truly is a fantastic place to start.
Work experience and volunteering are both great options to begin with. Not only will you gain new skills you will also be able to sharpen your English vocabulary (if required) through communicating with local people on a daily basis. Alternative options include Internships, they provide an excellent way to learn, and build experience. Internships are fantastic to put on your C.V and may well provide a full time career at the completion of it.
