How to navigate living and working in London
As the capital city of England, London has always been a popular destination for people looking for a change of pace or a new job.
But before you pack up and head for the city, particularly if you’re moving from overseas, take a look at these tips to help make the transition into your new life in London go as smoothly as possible.
Research your residence
Whether you’re moving to a flat on your own or into a house-share with strangers, you need to make sure that you know a bit about the people and the area around you. For example, if you are involved in any sports or social groups where you currently live, why not see if there are any equivalents in London?
This will be a great way for you to meet like-minded people and make friends in your area. Also, ask your friends and family if they have any connections in or around the area you plan to move to, because being in touch with a mutual friend is as good a place to start as any. It will help to know someone when you’re new in town, and it’s safer, too.
