Permanent and Vacation Opportunities Abroad

There are many summer jobs available in other countries, particularly in tourism and leisure (including American summer camps for children). The directory "Summer Jobs Abroad" is a good starting point.

There are also some opportunities for teachers of English as a foreign language. Organisations such as Teaching Abroad or APASS recruit for summer placements and, unlike most longer-term jobs in TEFL, a qualification is not needed. Also see our TEACHING ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE page for this.

Some employers regularly recruiting for work overseas:
