Home » Working Holidaymaker » Working in the UK
There were major changes to the working holidaymaker category in June 2003.
You can now take on any type of work in the UK. Previously, you were
only supposed to work half of the time during the two years and only in quite low level jobs.
Working under Working Holidaymaker Visa category
- You can now take on any type of work in the UK.
- You can take on any part-time or full-time job.
- You should take a holiday at some point during the two year period. If you are an employee under employment law you will have to take a holiday anyway!
- You can switch to being a work permit holder after one year in the UK. However, you should note that work permits are normally only issued for high level jobs and where the employer can show that there is a shortage of people to fill the vacancy.
If you are an employer looking to hire working holidaymakers or if you are a working holidaymaker looking for work why not try the workpermit.com Employment Center.
