Published on: 23 Nov 2010

There are general briefings about finding work overseas on the RTPI international pages: scroll down to "Change of Scene" in the first column. The General Advice section covers many aspects of working overseas including how to find out about planning in another country. This section contains brief notes on the situation in several countries. Below that there are specific notes on finding work in various countries including Australia - a popular destination as our members have found it easy to find at least temporary positions there, and the planning system is sufficiently like the arrangements in the UK to make acclimatisation easy. 

Frequently Asked Questions about international planning.

The RTPI's International Affairs Officer is able to provide you with more detailed advice, including opportunities for voluntary work, sponsored travel and service overseas and specific advice on individual countries. Contact RTPI International.

Sorry, the Institute does not find work or arrange work experience placements or internships for UK planners wishing to work overseas.
