What to expect from Working in the UK

Whenever a person moves to new country for work whether it’s on a permanent or contract basis it’s always a good idea to get some background about the working conditions. Now if you’re reading this, chances are you’re interested in coming to the UK to work but what should you expect from working in the UK?

Well it’s really a world of opportunity, you have the chance to work for some of the largest companies in the world, gain great work experience and because of its proximity to Europe there are many opportunities to travel. Having the benefit of earning the pound allows you to get a financial kickstart when you do decide to go home and because there are many people from outside the UK living and working you can meet some wonderful people from all over the world.

Documents Required to work in the UK

Not everyone is blessed with an EU passport, so for those of us who don’t have one, what documents are required to work within the UK.

The main documents that are required are the TF4 or the TF5 Visa, which is often referred to as the youth mobility Visa. Nearly all agencies that help contractors find work will ask for a copy of these documents along with your passport, and proof of identity. Once a national insurance number has been given to you it’s always important to pass that on to the agency as well, to make sure that you are completely covered.
