<p>There are tons of opportunities in Europe for career breakers - including here in the UK. It's particularly good if you want to do paid work, learn a language, or do snowsports.</p><p>Some Europe facts for career breakers:</p>
<ul class="indent"><li>
You can <strong>work in EU countries without a permit</strong> (if you are a British citizen).</li>
<li>
Europe is a great place for s<strong>easonal work</strong> - both summer and winter. Resorts always need helping hands on ski lifts, with driving, in hotels, beach bars etc.</li>
<li>
If you are sporty or just generally active, you can <strong>work at summer camps</strong> in Europe. Many organisations include training and even qualifications!</li>
<li>
If you're interested in <strong>learning a language</strong>, you can do it in the country it's spoken. Many language schools offer cultural immersion programmes with host families. This is a great career break option if speaking a second language will help your promotion prospects.</li>
<li>
There are lots of other <strong>cultural learning opportunities</strong> in Europe, such as art history in Italy, cooking in France or dancing in Spain.</li>
<li>
<strong>Volunteer opportunities</strong> are available mainly in Eastern Europe and in the UK.</li>
</ul><p>And if you stay in the UK?</p>
<ul><li>
You don't have to get used to a new language or culture, so you<strong> don't spend any time acclimatising</strong>. This makes it a good option if you don't have much time for your career break.</li>
<li>
It's relatively <strong>cheap </strong>- as you're not flying anywhere.</li>
<li>
Be aware that some volunteer projects in the UK actually require you to <strong>live somewhere away from home</strong> – the plus side is that accommodation is often provided for you.</li>
