So you want to come here and just have a little barjob against the boredom...how are you going to pay for everything?

Don't blame you... i'm planning on the same although if you're looking on working in a bar i doubt you'd earn enough money to actually live a great life out there. Don't quote me on this and I'm sure someone else will be able to give you more accurate information, but bar staff when i was there last tended to be more asian (indian filipino etc) i guess because they can pay them lower salaries...

would be intersting to see what the other responses are here though just in case i run out of money whilst i'm looking for a job out there

hey fella, what's up?

As my learned friend has pointed out, most bars here are staffed by Phillipino & Indian staff, but there are a few exceptions, especially trendier bars, where they like to have Westerners (or Aussies & South Africans). A few more places have a Western Bar Manager, with a team of bar-people from the developing nations. Have you any previous barwork experience?

ah, a kept man. you lucky sod. with no previous in barwork you may have limited choices. but you may get something in the leisure industry. maybe try something like desert safaris, you could be a tour guide and do some offroading on the side... they like native brits for that kind of thing. do you have any hobbies - e.g. sailing, kite-surfing etc? again, native english speakers are popular as instructors?

wont the visa situation be a problem?
