UK Hospo Programme

What’s the most British experience you can imagine? Is it watching a live English Premier League match to the chant of 30,000 fans? Perhaps it’s the thought of a relaxing picnic on the village green, or an afternoon tea complete with scones and copious cups of English breakfast? One thing is certain; it’s hard to imagine anything more British than a quaint English pub serving room-temperature pints to friendly locals!

With the help of Letz Live and (since July 1) our new sister company The UK Pub Co, this iconic experience could be your reality. We’ve partnered with several hundred highend pubs, restaurants and country resorts throughout the United Kingdom to offer the very best in Working Holiday opportunities for young people keen to immerse themselves into an authentic British lifestyle. Whether you feel the Scottish Isles calling your name, or would rather replenish the glasses of the Manchester University crowd, we’ll help to pair you with the perfect place of employment to call home.

In the lead up to your Working Holiday, the team will work closely with you to identify your skills, interests and ideal destination, and then find a venue that ticks all the right boxes. Whether you’re more at home behind the bar, waiting tables, or preparing hearty British food as a cook or qualified chef, there’s a constant demand for motivated and hard-working individuals seeking paid live-in arrangements across the United Kingdom. 

On your days off, you’re free to take in the history and charm of your new neighborhood and beyond. From the beautiful, pebbled beaches of Brighton and the rolling hills of Yorkshire, to the thriving metropolis of London and the Royal Buckingham Palace, you’ll have access to endless iconic activities. What’s more, with the whole of continental Europe just a stone’s throw away, you’re set to have some truly diverse adventures!
