The Overseas Job Centre is part of an inter-related group of travel websites and blogs intent on encouraging people to travel for longer. Through our sites we provide suggestions for funding your travels by working abroad, saving money as a volunteer, or enjoying once in a lifetime experiences while on a gap year or career break.
Though we fund our own travels through our websites, to call us a commerical organisation would be a bit of a stretch. We are simply two backpackers that like to share the stuff we find when researching our trips. We are not an employment agency, find it flattering that some people think we have offices in London, Paris and New York and we don't have any brochures.
The OJC is Deirdre Higgins, a veteran of the working week in France, Belgium, Peru, Britain and Ireland, and Shane Donovan who has successfully evaded a real job since leaving school. We work on our websites as we travel and have helped people find paid and volunteer jobs In Australia, France and China while we have been in, among other places, Bolivia, Lebanon or Malaysia.
“An excellent website with jobs and info for gappers.”
“Extensive information on working holidays and jobs abroad for gap year students and the not-yet-seriously-employed (who appear to include the site's authors).”
You don't have to take our recommendations. This site is backed up by a guide to working abroad, along with a directory of useful links for finding and arranging your own jobs abroad. Current vacancies around the world can be found in our Jobs Abroad Bulletin site. For everything else we suggest starting on our main PAYAway website.
