Relocation: Working in the UK

Named the best city in the world by TripAdvisor in 2012, there’s always something to do in London and it really is the gateway to the rest of Europe – imagine having the Running of the Bulls, Oktoberfest, St. Paddy’s, Amsterdam, Sail Croatia, Glastonbury, the Mediterranean and more all on your doorstep – it’s every travellers dream!

What we're looking for

You’ve probably heard a lot about the recession and issues with the Euro zone, but London’s construction scene is going strong. There’s a continuous demand for time served, qualified tradespeople, especially in the high spec residential refurbishment and commercial & retail fit out market.

Right now we’ve got a huge demand for carpenters, joiners, bricklayers, painters, plasterers and labourers and if you’re reliable and good at what you do, you can get as much work as you want, when you want – giving you plenty of time to explore.

Are you eligible?

If you're from Australia or New Zealand and are aged between 18 and 31 years old, you have a great chance of getting a VISA through the Youth Mobility Scheme.

Isn't London really expensive?
