Finding Companies

Not all jobs are advertised. You could also approach organisations or find work through networking in the industry.

Find organisations that interest you and get in touch, always with a named contact. Be specific about why you are writing to them and what you’re looking for.

Show your enthusiasm for the sector and highlight any relevant skills. Don’t give up if you don’t get a reply – follow up with a phone call or email to show that you’re keen.

Try the following sites to find companies to approach:

General:

  • GoinGlobal - search under ‘employer directory’ and in the ‘professional and personal networking section’ in the individual country guides
  • LinkedIn Find Alumni tool - see where Newcastle University graduates are working for inspiration
  • Chambers of Commerce - search for Chambers of Commerce between the UK and other countries. They often include jobs and lists of member companies on their websites
