Just would like to get a tally of the all those Aussies and Kiwies in the UK (there at the moment) and those who are going in this forum.

It would be nice to be able to exchange info with re to our circumstances.

Also, maybe if you can give a brief bio on what you're doing in the UK and any problems things to look out for future travellors :)

Hey danamaree,

I am going to the UK as part of my RTW trip. I will be there for 4 months, beginning on the 1st of July '05. I plan to work in England, most probably, London, for 3 months doing pub work. After that i am going to train it around the rest of UK, mainly just to see the other capital cities, and to visit some relies.

Im from Adelaide, so everything will be quite a step up from what im used to in this relaxed capital:)

Oh tell me about it. I'll be arriving Mid-June, also plan to work - try office temping work and then move up to Manchester around Xmas. I hope to save enough money to do Europe before going back.

Just thought i'd butt in here-hope you don't mind! I'm living in the UK, i met someone in the town i work in and he was from Oz and he was working doing promotinmg-he'd been doing it for a couple of months or so-he seemed to be enjoying it-well i supoose it was giving him money at the end of the day! The promoting thing sounds good-you're kinda you're own boss-well kinda!

yeh i mean office temp work should be pretty easy to find-look in the local papers-there is a whole host of stuff under office work!-not bad pay either.Pub work-another great one, restaurant work etc. To get an idea search the Uk papers onlione just to get an idea!-search in google!

I'll be going to Oz and am looking forward to the relaxed, chilled out atmosphere than here in the UK-so that's an idea of what it's like!

Hey LilJ, its tur you havent been around for a while.
I worked in London for the past 8 months before I went away. All the people I worked with were Aussies and Kiwi´s all on working Visas. They looked for jobs in this magazine called TNT that is free outside most train stations in London. It is perfect for jobs and is written for you lot!!
Find that and you´ll find work, honest

I am in Europe at the moment but have been working in London since jan, all the aussies and kiwis tend to live around the same areas eg acton.

If you want a cool aussie pub, go to the Redback Tavern in Acton!

I'm leaving for the UK in Jan 06, was planning to be there for xmas but its cheaper to wait...anyhoo i'll be travelling around for 3-4 months but could be longer if I decide to get some pub work. I've been told that its quite easy for aussies to pick up pub work, is this true?? i'm sure there are people from other countries picking up work over there so don't get me wrong but seeing as i'm from oz, i only ever hear about aussies getting work pretty easily....
