Expatriates should think about the sorts of jobs they can secure when moving abroad if they have not already got one lined up.
This is according to a spokeswoman for Expatnetwork.com, who said: "You may have already been offered one – if not, are your skills suitable for working abroad?
"Research the job boards to see what is on offer, the salary and benefits; how do they compare to what you have in the UK?"
It may be that a person is moving abroad to be with family or a partner who is already living in a foreign country because of a job.
The spokeswoman went onto say that it is a good idea to look at what benefits are offered with an expat job role.
This is because relocating abroad can have a huge affect on the whole family and a school allowance or accommodation can help to ease the process.
