The Social Membership

If you are looking for more than just the arrival formalities this is the membership package for you. It will give you access to our incredible 365-day social events calendar with membership discounts. You will also be invited to our awesome Arrival Party where you will receive invaluable advice about all aspects of living in the UK as well as making some lifelong friends.

What's Included

  • Arrival Info Party

    What better way to celebrate your arrival to the UK and the start of your amazing adventure than with a few drinks before heading out on the town to sample the local pub scene?! Throw in a couple hours of engaging facts and essential information on living here and this is one BritBound event not to be missed. 

    Among the priceless tips and guides on settling into the UK and London we’ll cover things like doctors, dentists, jobs, tax, National Insurance, long term accommodation, finding the job you want and ideas on what to do and experience whilst you’re here. 

    Lifelong friendships have started at the arrival party, definitely a date for your diary!

  • Membership to our Social Events Club

    Whether you’re travelling to the UK on your own, with a partner, or in a group of friends, meeting new people is one of the most enjoyable aspects of living and working overseas. The BritBound Social Events Membership gives you access to 365 exclusive BritBound events per year and also discounts on many London, UK and European outings, events and adventures. From cheap price theatre nights, pub quizzes, boat cruises, festivals and weekend tours… The BritBound social events calendar will ensure that your diary is the envy of all.

  • UK Bank Account

    If there’s one area that will have you reaching for the camomile tea, it's the topic of UK Bank Accounts. With opening criteria that changes with the tides, it is no wonder this area has many stressing out! Luckily BritBound has been around for years- we know how the banks work and we can go to the very top if we need to get things fixed for you! There are a number of options available; the choice of bank account we recommend will be determined on your passport and visa type. However all options we offer are a same day account.

  • Unlimited Fee-Free Bank Transfers

    This is something you may not even have thought about yet; how do you get your money from one country to another? How do you ensure that when you get here you have a bank account with funds you can access? Using cards from home whilst overseas can be very costly.  Well, the answer is with an International Money Transfer. However, banks usually charge a fee to carry this out for you; then the receiving bank charges too. Ouch! There are lots of options out there, but as a one off transaction you really cannot beat the exchange rate of an online money transfer company.

  • National Insurance Number

    A National Insurance number is essentially your tax number and it will be required by your employer and to help you keep track of your tax payments. We'll ensure that you get your number set up as quickly as possible. It also gives you access to a whole range of services including the National Health Service.

  • Employment Resources & CV Template

    Finding a job in the UK is likely to be different to what you have been used to back home; so getting started on the right foot is key! Being a BritBounder means that you have access to our employment resources- handy ”Working In” guides, UK specific CV template, as well as insider tips and access to our Jobs Board. We will also introduce you to potential employers and employment agencies so you can set up some interviews / meetings ready for your arrival.

    Furthermore our resident experts can assist with Payroll Services and comprehensive tax tutorials to better understand what your tax options are once you’re working!

  • Accommodation Advice & Assistance

    Whether you are looking for a short term solution for your initial arrival or something more long term, we have plenty of options. We work not only with London’s top award-winning hostels, but also credible agencies and landlords who have houses and rooms available across London. 

    You can also access lots of articles on our InBounder Resources to help you navigate your way around the topic of FInding Accommodation.

  • Choice of UK SIM Card

    All of our packages include a UK SIM Card and we provide your number straight away so you can give it out to your family, friends and any employers or recruitment agencies even before you leave. Being contactable from the word go is a huge benefit especially when it comes to getting work here, plus your nearest and dearest will be relieved to know they can get hold of you once you’ve arrived and turned your phone on. 

    All of our SIMs are from mainstream network providers (Three and 02). There are a whole host of SIM brands that piggy back off these networks – trouble is many are here today, gone tomorrow brands which look like great deals but are actually riddled with hidden charges and fees. If you are looking to live and work here for an extended period you'll need a UK based phone network with great coverage and competitive data offerings.
