Brexit is approaching, and for most people, that spells uncertainty. The EU has always offered freedom of movement, enabling opportunities for workers to broaden their work experience and explore new and exciting territory.
Whether or not this freedom will continue, at least in the same way, is unclear. Therefore, we think it’s a good idea to make the most of your current opportunity to travel freely across this terrain.
The UK is by far the destination of choice for most health workers looking to work away from home. But once you arrive, and while the UK remains in the EU, you also have the chance to see new and interesting places on the visa you’ve been granted.
If you’re an Australian or New Zealand traveler planning for a UK working holiday, now may be an excellent time to finalise the agenda.
