France is a hugely popular destination for young people working abroad (the weather helps, a lot). 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 Marseilles to leading a tour group in Paris.
Jobs in France are plentiful, 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 France and you’ll be likely to stay on your gap year for longer, funding it along the way.
