Committing to any career move can be a daunting prospect, but it can also be very exciting when you add in the possibility of discovering a new life abroad.

In our latest blog, we briefly explore some reasons why an international relocation can aid your personal and professional development.


The International Tax marketplace offers an abundance of job opportunities for Tax professionals to explore new career prospects worldwide. Many multinational organisations have Regional or Head offices in larger and more prosperous cities, therefore increasing both the demand and volume of positions available alongside the Top Consulting firms who will also often have a large presence there.


Securing a position abroad offers some challenges but also allows continuous growth and training opportunities, allowing you to expand your knowledge and in turn improving your career development. You will get the chance to use the tax expertise you’ve gained over the years and contribute expert Tax knowledge to fresh projects within a new team or Tax function.

Taking on a new job in a new country can lead to more success in your career and allow you to tap into the international market and encourage you to adapt to different working environments. You will form unrivalled communication skills with the experience of being in a diverse workplace and culture.


We often hear the phrase; ‘it’s not what you know, but who you know’. Relocating to a new country will allow you to expand your international professional network for future employment opportunities and increase your market intelligence.

Committing to the relocation can also have an impact on your personal life so it’s important to make new friends and develop connections. Explore our articles dedicated to expat forums for a quick and effective way to find people that share your interests and the experience of relocating to a new country.


Perhaps the reason for a relocation is because you need a fresh start or the opportunity to reinvent yourself and focus on long term career ambitions. It’s no secret that many aspects of your life will change including your professional commitments and life outside of work. You will experience a fresh routine and likely spend your free time differently and perhaps take you out of your comfort zone.

Relocating to a different country will allow you to discover new cultures, meet new people and enjoy unique experiences. It will give you the chance to explore a different way of living and immerse yourself in your new surroundings; maybe you can learn the local language, join sports and social clubs or use the opportunity to travel more. Of course, adjusting to a new way of life will take some time and can be challenging at first, but once you embrace the change, you might even begin to enjoy a higher quality of life and job satisfaction than you have experienced before.
