We noticed a “disconnect” between what Aussies and Kiwis at home thought and what they experienced in London. So we surveyed our professional community to find out how hard it was to find jobs in London.
- The UK Needs Skilled Migrants

- Best Channels for Finding Work
Over 80% of Aussies and Kiwis didn’t have trouble finding jobs in London. A fifth found it really easy.
Yes, we confess our community gets a little help from us. Before they arrive, we connect people heading to London with the UK recruiters most likely to get them jobs in London.
Once connected with the right recruiters, people land jobs on their own merits. This includes professional skills but a few other attributes as well – like perseverance and working hard.
But there is also a clear and important message from Aussies and Kiwis in London. To get a job in London as quickly as possible, plan, prepare and get 100% ready BEFORE YOU ARRIVE.
“Plan ahead, do your research and, unless you have an amazing amount of experience, do not expect to walk straight into a job. Work hard but also take the time to enjoy UK and Europe while you have the chance”
“Come prepared that it may take some time and perseverance to find a job.”
