If you’re determined to travel the world with your job, did you know that a small number of sought-after graduate schemes allow you to experience international placements as part of your initial training. Some go further and are the springboard for a future career traveling the globe.
Yes, they’re competitive, some have challenging entry requirements (language capability, Masters, experience of living outside your home country) – but think of the rewards.
All packed and ready to go?
Here’s our list of some of the schemes we’ve found – many are general management schemes, so don’t limit yourself by the type of industry/sector.
Some of these schemes have odd, short opening times, so check them out as soon as you can – you’ll need to be ready as soon as they open for applications.

Tip: If you’re in the early years of a degree, it’s definitely worth looking at this sort of scheme a year or more before your want to get a job, so you’re well prepared.
