3 aplicativos para procurar emprego em Londres

Procurar trabalho em Londres pode ser um desafio. Muitos sabem que procurar um trabalho é, em si, um trabalho. Para ajudar nossos leitores listamos 3 aplicativos que te ajudam conseguir um emprego na terra da rainha.

  1. Task Rabbit

É um aplicativo superútil que surgiu nos Estados Unidos e rumores dizem que está para chegar ao Brasil, mas nada foi confirmado ainda. O TaskRabbit na verdade conecta você, que está precisando de algum serviço, a alguém que topa fazer esse serviço. Basta cadastrar-se com seu CV, estar legalmente no país e ter histórico limpo com a polícia local para tornar-se um “Tasker”. Você pode escolher o quanto cobrar por seus serviços. Apesar de ter opções para trabalhar em escritório o foco do aplicativo é para serviços braçais (empregada, pintor etc). É uma ótima maneira de conseguir dinheiro extra na Inglaterra, e muitos já usam o app como trabalho integral.


Mesmo esquema que o Task Rabbit mas este app é somente para trabalhos domésticos.

Marriage by Power of Attorney in Brazil

Did you know that it is possible to marry without having to be present at the ceremony? Marriage by proxy is an increasingly common practice, and Brazilian law allows this type of marriage, even without the absence of one of the couple or even of both.

If it is impossible for one or both sides to attend the place and date of the civil marriage ceremony, it may be celebrated through the presence of attorneys-in-fact established by the bride and groom by a public power of attorney made in a notary’s office, granting special powers to the trustee to receive in name of the grantor, the other party in marriage. This power of attorney may be made at any notary’s office, but it must be done exclusively for this specific purpose and has a maximum validity of 90 days.

LondonHelp4U recommends that a public power of attorney be given giving the right person only the right to perform the marriage ceremony. The power of attorney must be made by the Brazilian Consulate in the case of the Brazilian spouse. The foreign spouse who does not have Brazilian citizenship must perform the power of attorney at one of the public notaries located in the United Kingdom. The Brazilian Consulate offers a list where you can choose the nearest public notary. For more information, please contact CartorioHelp4U. CartorioHelp4U is part of the LondonHelp4U group.

How to validate your university degree in the UK?

Validating diplomas in England requires patience and perseverance and the costs may be high, but it is a successful career investment in England. Firstly, in England, each profession is regulated by a body of its own, which is responsible for the validation of its Brazilian diploma. As there is a considerable variation between the professional qualification courses in Brazil and in England, the first step will be to know exactly what is the equivalence of your Brazilian course here. For this there is the NARIC (National Recognition Information Center), a government agency that advises foreigners on how to validate their professional and academic qualifications here.

From the analysis of its documentation, NARIC can provide a Statement of Comparability, attesting to the equivalence of its Brazilian qualifications, a document that is not required to revalidate its diploma, but may be required by some educational institutions or employers. NARIC can also issue a more complete document called the Career Path Report, which, in addition to equivalence, provides detailed information about your profession and guidelines for exercising it in England. If you dismiss the NARIC consultancy because you already know the equivalence of your diploma, you can go directly to the agency responsible for your profession. Health care personnel can obtain information on the council’s website in England, which is the HCPC – Health and Care Professions Council. If you are a physiotherapist or occupational therapist, for example, this is the organ to which to go.

Those who do not have European nationality and have graduated in medicine outside the UK will have to take an exam called PLAB – Professional and Linguistic Assessment Boards, before practicing medicine in England. On the website of the GMC – General Medical Council, the UK General Medicine Board, you will find the information necessary to recognize your qualifications and practice your profession legally in the country. What about the Brazilian dentists who are so successful in Europe? The body responsible for validating the diploma is the GDC – General Dental Council, which is equivalent to our CFO – Federal Council of Dentistry in Brazil. On their website you will find the guidelines for doing the ORE – Overseas Registration Exam, mandatory for those who want to take care of British smiles but did not graduate in the UK. The exam consists of a written test and a clinical test, which do not need to be done together. Four attempts are allowed on each test; after passing the written exam, you will have up to five years to do the clinical part.

Fluency in English

To practice your profession legally in England, you need to have full command of the English language. Unless you have a European passport, you will have to prove your fluency through the IELTS – International English Language Testing System. The IELTS exam is composed of four segments: listening, reading, writing and speaking. In each of these segments of the exam, you will receive a grade from 1 to 9. The minimum average required to revalidate Brazilian diplomas is 7, but you can not take less than 6.5 in any part of the exam. The proof of the IELTS result, which is valid for 2 years, will be one of the documents to be presented in the application for validation of your Brazilian diploma. 

 Important: all documents will have to be translated in English.
