No luck finding a job in the UK? Hit the slopes of Canada with BUNAC

Thursday 15th March 2012

BUNAC, the overseas work specialist, offers a Work Canada programme that enables young Brits to get a heads up on the transatlantic competition.

If you apply now, you have a fantastic chance of catching the end of the ski season in Canada. There is a new quota of visas available from the High Commission in Canada, so anyone thinking about undertaking a transatlantic working holiday as part of their year out could greatly benefit.

For those who may think the whole visa application process could be a bit daunting, help is on hand from overseas work specialist, BUNAC. Their Work Canada programme provides comprehensive assistance with many things, including travel arrangements and job hunting, airport transfers and first night accommodation, plus orientation advice and ongoing support throughout your trip.

At a great price of £254, Work Canada allows British students and young people aged 18 to 30 to take advantage of the healthier Canadian job market. As well as the higher chances of finding a job, you will undoubtedly experience life and gain memories you’ll never forget, as well as enhancing your CV massively - enjoying an adventure or two along the way.

Participants in the programme have access to multiple job opportunities and accommodation listings, as well as a number of invitations to social events and expert support for the duration of your stay from a helpful, dedicated team of specialists in both the UK and Canada.

The usual time for a visa application process to be completed is around six to eight weeks, so by applying now gap year travellers will be able to take advantage of the end of the Canadian ski season, as well as getting ahead of the game in terms of finding a work placement for the remainder of the year.
