Summer seasonal jobs abroad

Working abroad over the summer can be a way to gain employment and see other countries at the same time.

Employers usually recruit for seasonal summer jobs from March right into the summer.

Check job websites regularly as new vacancies can be added daily with some summer seasonal jobs being advertised for a short period of time.

Whilst COVID restrictions have been largely removed here in the UK, if you go abroad, you should check the situation in the country you are visiting. More information is available on the Welsh Government website.
