I am an Australian who is planning to go to europe in July this year for travel and work. I would like to start work in about the middle of September. Ideally I would like to work in Paris, I speak French but am far from fluent. Does abyone know anything about working in hospitality in france? how difficult it is to get a job? If I cannot work in France, where would you suggest working? I am thinking about the UK or Spain but haven't heard anything about working in the UK, apart from London and know nothing about working in Spain. I do not speak any Spanish. Does anyone have any suggestions of a good place to work for english speakers?

I don't know if you've sorted your visa out yet, but from what I've heard, France is one the hardest countries to work in due to all the paperwork
I can't say anything about jobs in the hospitality industry, but have you thought about doing TEFL? (teaching English as a foreign language)

Depending on the country and how important English is there, it can be super easy to get a job, although you definitely boost your chances if you do a TEFL qualification.

I've taught TEFL in Germany and England and it was a great experience that I'd recommend to anyone.

Just something to consider if you've got your heart set on travelling but
have trouble finding a job...:)
