After meeting your regional Prospero Representative, our Consultant will be there for you every step of the way until you move over to the UK. Being a UK citizen and working in the UK your overseas based Consultant will be in a great position to know exactly what is required and pass the essentials onto you. Please feel free to stay in touch with them for honest and reliable advice right up until you depart.
When you initially meet with the Consultant, they will advise you on:
Travelling: When you arrive the last thing you want to do is get lost in the hustle & bustle of busy UK airports. The Consultant can help make sure you arrive safely and provide you with maps, directions as well as an underground pass.
Accommodation: They will provide you with websites and guides (to the best hostels, house shares and apartments) in the areas you are looking to live in, depending on your situation. If you are looking to organise somewhere before you land we can advise you on best possible way to get this sorted too.

There are many really nice areas that still provide you with all the amenities so it’s really a lifestyle choice. One of our International Candidate Managers will be able to provide you with all the advice you need about areas to live
We offer excellent rates of pay, so you will be able to live in good accommodation. To get an idea take a look at www.gumtree.co.uk, a very popular website for accommodation in London. There are also a number of other flat shares and property websites including:
Training: To help you teach to the best of your ability we ensure you are fully prepared and provide you with support, training and CPD. Your overseas consultant can help you enrol for this training.
