Looking for seasonal staff?

Then look no further than BUNAC. During the summer (June 1 – September 15) BUNAC assists thousands of English-speaking university students from Britain, Ireland and other European countries to work in the US through our Work America program.

Why hire BUNAC applicants?

  • All participants are enrolled at an accredited university
  • They are generally extremely conscientious, flexible, well-motivated and hard working
  • Students accepted by the BUNAC are issued a work permit (J-1 Summer Work and Travel Visa) authorized by the US Government
  • The application process requires an interview at the American Embassy and a pre-departure orientation with BUNAC staff
  • Students are therefore screened and fully prepared for every aspect of working and living in the US
  • While students are in the US they will have the support of both BUNAC and our program sponsor, CIEE.

How do I advertise my positions?

If you wish to hire British seasonal staff at your business over the summer, then you simply need to complete the BUNAC staffing request form. Once this is completed and sent to, a staff member from BUNAC will be in touch to confirm your positions are being listed. Your dedicated team in the London office will be in regular contact for updates once you have filled your positions so we know when to stop advertising.

Please note that this service is for recruiting international staff between June and September from the UK. Under the terms of the Summer Work Travel J1 visa there are some jobs that international students cannot do.  These include:

  • Domestic help
  • Medical intern or provide medical treatment
  • Internships
  • Voluntary, unpaid training or work
  • Au pair
  • Work for a temping agency
  • Sports coach (including soccer coaches)
  • Summer camp counsellor
  • Factory work
  • Concessionary/commission based work or working at a travelling fair
  • Night Shift work
  • Jobs that involve driving
  • Door to door selling
