Work Starter Packs Abroad

Introductory country packages for paid work

Heading to a new country for a gap year is one of the most exciting things you’ll ever do, but it can also be daunting, with lots of things to get sorted out if you want to work while you’re there. A work starter pack takes care of all those things for you, meaning you can just turn up and settle in without any stress.

Let’s use Australia for an example, as it’s the most popular destination for travellers working on their gap year. A typical work starter pack here will help you set up a bank account, get your tax number, and sort out a SIM card – all those potentially complicated tasks you don’t want to tackle as soon as you land. Other starter packs may include visa help, hostel accommodation for your first few nights, or help finding a job.

We recommend looking through the options available to find the right starter pack for you, so your transition from one country to another, and from your old life to the new, goes as smoothly as possible.
