Career Breaks

A career break is becoming an increasingly accepted activity by people and businesses around the world and is a fantastic way to explore the world later in life whilst still aiming to return to the workplace at some point.

People take career breaks in different ways; some taking a sabbatical from work for a designated amount of time, others quitting work to travel the world indefinitely with no specified end date. These different options suit people’s different requirements, but the common factor is that everyone is interested in exploring the globe and in today’s interconnected world that is more possible than ever.

At Oyster we have a range of fantastic career break opportunities, whether you’re looking to escape for 2 weeks, 6 months, a year or more! We offer projects which focus on personal development learning Spanish in Chile or a ski season in Whistler, to offering help to others through projects like environmental work in Australia or childcare in Romania. The key is to find the project which suits you best, and we will help you every step of the way by providing the necessary information, feedback and insight into all the projects available.

Career break travel is becoming increasingly popular and with it has come a mass of career break ideas and projects. The key to a successful career break abroad or in the UK is to find the right project for you and for the right amount of time. Don’t be pressured into certain destinations by other people or a longer period than you originally wanted (your employer might have something to say about that too!). Our focus will always be on finding the perfect project for you, working together to tick all the boxes required to send you out on the perfect career break.

If you’re considering a career break, whether you know where you want to go or not, get in touch and we’d love to discuss the options available with you to create your trip of a lifetime.
