Work & Travel Plus

Our Work & Travel Plus program gives you the chance to explore the beauty of Australia for 6 to 12 months, while funding your fun by working in guaranteed, temporary job placements that we arrange for you. Most of these positons are in the hospitality field, some opportunities to work in customer service are also sometimes available.

Alliance Abroad works with a network of respected Australian employers to secure positions for our participants. That way, when you arrive in Australia, you begin earning right away. There’s no guessing, stressing, or pounding the pavement to look for work; instead, we ensure that you have your job placement before arriving in Australia! We do our best to match your experience and education with the best opportunity, accompanied by an extensive network of leading employers and businesses. Moreover, in working a guaranteed average of 32 hours per week, you’ll have a perfect balance between work and play!

Working Holiday Program: How it Works

The Australian government offers Working Holiday visas to many countries. The precise rules of the visa vary depending on your country of citizenship. Learn more about these visas on the website for the Australian Department Home Affairs.
