Posted: Jan 13 2016

London is one of the most exciting and vibrant cities in the world. It offers a complete mix of modern attractions historic charm. There’s plenty to see and do, which is why it makes it one of the hotspots for working abroad.


We have put together a quick guide of why you should start a new adventure in 2016 by moving to work in London.

International experience is great on your CV – Employers love to see diverse experience on a CV.

What better way to impress your potential employer looking at your CV than showing confidence and commitment by moving to a new country, finding a new job, new friends and new home.

You’ll meet new friends – with around 6.6 million foreign workers in the UK you’re bound to find some like-minded people to make new friendships with. Not only that, the British are friendly, and love making people feel welcome to their city. (stats from

There’s tonnes to see and do – It’s impossible to get bored in this city. With no end of sights and activities to see and do in London, from history to art, food, the nightlife, the list is endless.

Keep your eyes peeled for our next post this month on the UK’s Bucket List of cool activities.

You can travel Europe in your holidays – With options like the Euro Star, and plenty of cheap flight companies out there, much of Europe is accessible from London within a couple of hours. This makes weekend breaks and the 13 weeks’ worth of holiday a great opportunity to travel and explore this part of the world.

The British Curriculum looks good on your CV – It is similar to a number of education systems across the world making it generally fairly easy to pick up for foreign teachers. It looks great on your CV to show that you understand different education systems, and experience in the UK is widely sought after around the world.

London isn’t the only location in the UK to teach – If the busy lifestyle of London isn’t for you then the UK is still set to offer you the right solution. From small coastal towns to quaint countryside villages the UK offers a destination for everyone. Being such a small country means you’re never more than a train ride from any of the major cities. 

What Qualifications do you need? – You must have a degree and a teaching qualification to be able to teach in the UK. You will also be asked to provide a CRB check.
