Full-time jobs abroad

To secure a full-time job abroad, the same principles apply as for finding a job in the UK, i.e. you would need to be clear what you can offer and what you are looking for, before you research locations and employers. Most importantly, you will need to be clear about the format and structure of CVs and applications in the country of your choice, as these differ.
