Jobs in Europe

Gap year jobs in Europe

Europe is made up of over 50 different countries, so there are plenty of jobs to choose from! If you’re aged between 18-30 and from a country outside the European Union (EU) then you can apply for a working holiday visa (WHV) which allows you to live and work in any country in the EU for up to a year. Your WHV allows you to work in any job, from working in a bar in Amsterdam to leading a Segway tour in Berlin.

Other popular jobs in Europe include working as a ski instructor in France and as one of Santa’s little helpers in Finland. Failing that, you can always find work in a bar!

Jobs in Europe are a plenty, so there is sure to be something that interests you. If you’re in a position where you can learn the local language you could open yourself up to even more job opportunities.  You’ll take more out of your gap year experience working in Europe and you’ll be likely to stay on your gap year for longer, funding it along the way. Our product listings below are a great way to get you started.
