Working abroad

If you are thinking of working abroad either in a placement on a temporary basis or on a permanent basis, then this part of the site has lots of helpful information.

From 'starting points' to 'how to find work abroad' or 'ERASMUS' to Going Global, we have just about everything you need to find work abroad.

How we can help you

  • You can use our drop-in service or our online guidance service, MyCareer Questions, for help and support with making decisions and planning your route to working abroad.
  • Our information room has a wealth of country guides for you to look at for helpful information on finding jobs and settling into a new culture.
  • The placement part of the ERASMUS programme is administered from the Careers Centre and we can offer you lots of advice on what ERASMUS is and how to find a placement.
  • We also subscribe to a great website called Goinglobal which has lots of advice on working abroad as well as a database of overseas jobs that are being advertised. You will need to be on a University of Leeds computer cluster to access it initially, but you can create a personal account which will then enable you to use it off campus. Simply use the 'Create Account' button and your LinkedIn account or email.
