Default Working in other countries? (outside of EU)

Hi guys

I am keen to work in another country for a few months.
I am aware that my UK citizenship allows me to enter and work in the EU without any limitations or visa restrictions. But, are there any other countries out there which my UK passport will have the same sort of access to.

I have 8 years experience in IT, but no formal degrees or diplomas, so I will most likely fail any points systems. There may be some companies that will sponsor me with a work permit, but I am interested in any other countries which I may not have to go through that process.
I am also 30 years old, so miss out on the Working Holiday schemes too.

I'm keen to hear from anyone with suggestions?
Best Regards,
Col

Basically - no.

You may still be eligible for the Australian working holiday visa as long as you apply before you turn 31. Visit http://www.immi.gov.au or ask on the Australia immigration forum.

It seems you may be still eligible for a Canadian working holiday visa too:

I don't know about New Zealand but you should check directly via http://www.immigration.govt.nz and not rely on hearsay.

Thanks alot for your help Jeremy.
My wife is actually 34, so we might have a problem.. but, I'll have a look at the Working Holiday schemes, and see if there are any possibilities.

Have a good one.
Best Regards,
