Work Overseas

Volunteer, work & learn

Working, learning and volunteering overseas 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 overseas on your Gap Year, career break or sabbatical.

Why Work Overseas?

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 overseas 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 overseas looks great on your CV and gives you something to talk about in those job interviews back at home.


Spend time living the dream in the States and get paid to be there? Ohh yeah! With our USA Summer Camps, internships and work placements you'll get the experience of a lifetime and the perfect addition to your CV! We’ll tee you up with the ultimate State Side gig right here. Check out all the Work USA info – we can help you with your application and get everything sorted before you go!

Where can I work overseas?

Although our most popular work abroad destinations are USA, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, 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 overseas without a degree?

Of course! There are plenty of opportunities for those travelling without a degree, bar work in Britain, fruit picking in New Zealand and summer camps in America. Teaching overseas 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.

Learn A Skill Abroad

Learning while you travel makes your trip more worthwhile. Coming back home with extra skills after a year abroad will show future employers that you made the most of your experience. Take a look below to find out about learning a language abroad or picking up new skills in far flung countries!

Learn A language

Learning a language abroad is a really great thing to do. Immerse yourself into a culture by learning a language in the country that speaks it. You get to live somewhere cool, get that smug feeling of self-improvement and have genuine exchanges with locals. Learn Spanish in Latin America, learn Japanese in Tokyo or French and Italian in Europe!

Learn a Skill

Let's get something straight: learning abroad isn't the same as learning at home. We're talking about learning to dive in Fiji, becoming a ski instructor in Canada or studying in the UK - learning abroad is way more fun! Come back from your travels with a new skill and earn some serious cool points with your mates.
