Volunteer, work & learn abroad with our programs

We love nothing more than getting to know a new country and learning new languages and about local traditions, that's why working overseas on a working holiday visa is a great way to travel. We have hundreds of opportunities for you to work and volunteer overseas 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. It's the perfect way to spend a gap year!

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.

What extras do I need to consider when I move abroad?

Asides from flights and accommodation (if it isn't aready included in your package of choice), you need to make sure you get the right level of cover. Our insurance is tailored for people who are working abroad - you can get covered for up to 24 months for a variety of bad ass jobs including farm work, ski seasons and volunteering in Asia. Cover is even possible if you're travelling on a one-way ticket - you can find out more here.
