8 places where jobs are plentiful
Escape the recession and find a job abroad!
With constant warnings about the terrible situation that Britain's job market finds itself in, it's easy to feel a bit pessimistic about the future.
However, fear not - the recession did not hit every country hard - time to pack up and find a job elsewhere!
With a minimum wage equivalent to £10.33, even getting a waitressing job in Australia can seriously pay off. As one of the countries least hit by the global economic crisis, the job market is booming. Plus - who wouldn't want to live in a country of sun, surf and surfer bodies?!
As everyone keeps saying - China is the future! With flourishing industries, now is the time to take some Mandarin evening classes before jetting off to China! Furthermore, getting teaching jobs in China not only pays well, but there are plenty to go round, even if you don't speak any Chinese - so there's no excuse!
Another Asian country surviving the recession and providing high-paying jobs to people all over the world. According to recent statistics, one in four skilled workers working in Singapore have come from overseas, so join the trend!
Canada's job market has large shortages at the moment - perfect for us to step in. Although it is still a competitive scene (and so it's worth building up your CV before moving there), people are needed particularly in the health sector and in IT.
Not only are there plenty of jobs in multiple sectors in Sweden, it is also a fantastic place to live and work - boasting an incredible welfare system and one of the highest standards of living in the world. Furthermore, there are plenty of opportunities for internships in Sweden, so if you're not ready to make a full commitment to a job, this is an ideal place to go.
Belgium's job shortages in sectors such as engineering, education, health, and other skilled professions make it a great place to go to find a job. Furthermore, with the EU and NATO having their headquarters based in Brussels, these organisations offer great interning and full-time job opportunities.
With 85% of the population coming from overseas, Qatar is a great place to emigrate to, with every chance that you will be meeting a wide variety of cultures in everyday life and in the workplace. Although expats in Qatar generally work quite long hours, the salaries are fantastic and it's all tax-free!
Austria's economy is currently growing, providing plenty of jobs for national and international workers alike, in particular in real estate, business and construction. However, it can also provide more short-term solutions, with plenty of jobs to be found in the ski resorts, so while you're waiting for jobs in the UK to pick up, why not hit the slopes?
