It is not easy but possible to find a job (or a volunteer) in another country without moving from home.
Here you will find a list of longer to shorter duration of stay and from fixed jobs to temporary jobs, summer jobs or jobs for weeks.
#1 Job search engines
Many companies are contemplating the idea of Skype interviews.
International pages with job search engines such as Indeed, Monster or GumTree, can give you an idea about the job offers you are looking for and the salary offered.
From these same websites, you can apply directly.
Multinationals are those companies that operate in two or more countries.
There are multinationals dedicated to different sectors and you can visit their own job portals to find vacancies.
Even once you are inside the company, you can have the opportunity to move to another country maintaining your same position.
#3 Tour Operators
Tour Operators hire tour guides for hotels and travel offices so that clients when arriving at the destination hotel, can contact a guide in their own language.
Generally, all expenses will be covered by the company such as travel tickets, food, hotel stays, medical insurance and in addition, your monthly payroll.
The most extended Tour Operators are TUI, Thomas Cook, Thomson, Kuoni, Travel Plan and Cosmos, among others.
Transatlantic companies always look for staff and it is a good option to travel and work at the same time.
Generally, an average of 10-12 hours a day is worked, although for each year worked on a cruise you will have 4 months of vacation, not bad uh?
Companies like Royal Caribbean, MSC, Costa Cruceros and Aida have their own portals to apply in the position that best suits you.
#5 EVS (European Voluntary Service)
To apply you must be under 30 years and send the request to the project of your interest.

#8 AuPair World
It is one of the best-known pages and it works best to find Aupair vacancies globally.
First, visit the profiles and choose the family you like by sending them an application.
In each profile, you will find how many children you must take care of and what is expected of you during the stay. Once both parties agree and meet you can decide when it will be your first day of work.
The duration of the stay will depend on each family, although it is generally from 3 months to a maximum of 1-2 years.
Families are looking for Au Pairs females but in some cases males.
The AuPairs must work an average of 6 hours a day with two days off and receive accommodation with meals and also a pocket money (previously agreed with the family).
