Coming to the UK

Welcome to the UK! If you're looking to base yourself here whilst traveling around Europe or if you're about to immigrate here, we've put together some helpful tips to help you get settled as fast as possible.

Working in the UK
Have you worked in the travel industry and looking for work in the UK? We have many temporary travel assignments paying up to £12 per hour (depending on location and experience) from one week to one year.

Need a visa to get started? Go to Ambler Collins   to get help and advice on what you will need. Please note that if you already have a two year working visa or a five year ancestry visa, you may accept temporary or permanent employment. 

Now you need a bank account. These can sometimes be tricky to get, however when you're working for New Frontiers, we can give you a letter of introduction. Read more about getting a bank account here .

Finally, don't forget to get your tax back! Did you know that most working visitors can reclaim tax when they go back home? Find out about it at  www.taxback.com !

In the meantime, here is some more information about London and the UK while you're here!

 

Living in London and the UK

If you're like most people and have got too much stuff to bring with you, try some shipping companies to make your move easier: Sevenseas and AngloPacific are 2 of many UK-bound shipping companies!

Once you're here, you'll need to find a place to stay. How about sharing a flat? The best site for this is usually Spare Room or Gumtree

Need more info? You'll probably find a lot more at  www.tntmagazine.com . All set! 

 

Partying in London

Although you'll be hard pressed NOT to find something to do in London, it can get confusing. There are so many places to go and things to see and do!

For local happenings, it's best to pick up any free magazine available outside most tube stations.
