Brexit and Employment in the UK

Brexit and Employment in the UK

Author -  The IWH UK Team

After the result of the Brexit referendum was announced, International Working Holidays has been receiving a lot of questions about employment in the UK and if jobs are readily available. We wanted to tell you straight up to not worry!

For those who still may be a little confused about what Brexit is, essentially, a small majority of the UK public voted to withdraw from the European Union. However, as there is a lot of uncertainty within the government about what they must do next, Brexit could take up to two years to take effect as there is a lot of uncertainty within the government about what they must do next. At this point, there are even talks that Brexit may not happen at all. Speculations aside, the result of the referendum does not mean anything has and will change in the way of employment: the job opportunities that existed before the referendum are still very much available now. As a kiwi you are part of the Commonwealth so do not fear about shortages of jobs at this time, because there are plenty out there! 

International Working Holidays has strong contacts with numerous employment agencies who have assured us that there are readily available jobs in every industry.
For now, there really is nothing to worry about. However, some of you may be thinking about plans to move to the UK well into the future and we can understand any doubts you may hold as a result of Brexit. Below, we hypothetically consider the potential outcomes of Brexit and impact on non-UK job seekers if it is triggered.

Members of the Commonwealth Countries

Simply put, Brexit would have no damaging impacts upon Commonwealth citizens wishing to find work in the Mother Country. There are even suggestions that Brexit could be a positive thing for Commonwealth citizens. For example, UK politics expert Clement Macintyre from the University of Adelaide said the referendum result ‘left room for negotiations that couldn’t have happened before’ (Courier Mail). This includes the ‘greater movement of skilled people between Commonwealth countries’ (Courier Mail). Even if new agreements aren’t formed under Brexit, the ability to work would still be attainable through the YMS or Ancestral Visas and the amount of jobs out there would certainly not decrease.

But how will Brexit affect me?

We understand that you must have a lot of questions whirling around your head, so we decided to address a couple of concerns about Brexit and how it may affect you.

For New Zealand, Australian and other Commonwealth Citizens


At this stage, nothing will change for New Zealand, Australian and other Commonwealth citizens. The right to live and work here will continue to be attainable through visas such as the YMS Visa and the Ancestry Visa.

The ability and processes behind travelling within the EU will also remain the same as they are now. That is, Commonwealth passport holders planning to visit any of the EU Member States do not require a visa if their stay is no longer than 90 days in a six month period within the Schengen zone.

For those who hold a UK passport


The primary question is, what will happen to the work rights of Commonwealth citizens with dual nationality in the UK who may wish to work in other parts of Europe? This will all depend on what the UK government is able to negotiate with the EU. For the moment and most likely for at least another 2 years, nothing will change. However, in the future the ability to work without visas in any of the 27 member EU countries with a UK passport may change once new legislations are enacted.

To Summarise

Any worries you may hold can be put to rest knowing that the implications of Brexit are likely to take at least 2 years to come into effect, if they ever do. We will keep you updated with any formal changes.

If you are thinking of moving to the UK, International Working Holidays are the experts at making your move hassle-free with services for all needs.
