Expats: Getting A Visa After Brexit

Welcome to the August edition of the Expat Network newsletter, full of the latest news affecting those living and working overseas and for those planning a move abroad.

The UK’s decision to leave the European Union has caused some confusion for Britons leaving to work and live in the EU. Will you still be able to get working visas?

In this edition we look at the latest job offers open to those wishing to work overseas. Below in Featured Jobs we detail just a fraction of the employment opportunities we hold on our database, classified by industry.

Also important for those willing and able to work overseas is to keep track of where new contracts are being awarded. Below in Contract News we showcase just a few of the many contract details loaded on our website.

We hope you enjoy this newsletter. We welcome your thoughts on other topics you would like us to cover. Or do you have your own tale to tell about expat life? Let us know.
