The career benefits to working abroad
July 18, 2017
Relocating abroad is a great way of progressing in your career aspirations. We've listed just some of the great things an international career can do for you.
The CV factor
There is no denying that international work experience will really make your CV stand out from the rest. In a crowded job market this could be the thing that differentiates you from the rest.
A large networking pool
Just as you have decided to work in another country, so too may those who you work with during your time abroad. Making those connections could be invaluable to your future career, opening you up to more and better job prospects.

Improving your language skills
Learning a new language fluently or even to just get by is a great skill to add to your CV. If you would like to progress within a large company, there is a chance that they may consider your language skills when evaluating you as a candidate for a new position.
Building cultural awareness
This is a great skill that many large and global companies will appreciate when they are looking to make new hires. Working as part of an international team, visiting the other offices you will need to adapt to the cultural work ethic. Already having that experience will be invaluable to anyone looking to build on their existing teams.
A potential pay rise
As well as the benefits to your skills set and CV, working internationally in places such as the United Arab Emirates will also have a big financial reward. This is because your wages will be tax-free (in the UAE). This could therefore be a great way for you to save money for your future.
