You are likely to pay less if you rent a room in a house or flat shared with other people. That’s where this mobile app comes in, as you can browse for rooms to rent in most UK cities. You can find like-minded people on the app who are also looking for someone to share a place with, and get in touch with them about living together.
Over 400 million international users are on this public transport mobile app. Trains and buses are widely used in the UK and so a mobile app like this will come in handy!

The app will show you suggested social groups in your area based on the interests and hobbies that you choose. You can join as many groups as you want and attend the events that they hold. It is a great way to meet new people and, if you are looking for a job, there are usually business events you can attend that are good for networking.

Finding a Job in the UK
Finding a job in the UK may be too daunting for some, especially in the middle of the Brexit crisis. The Office of National Statistics 2019 Migration Quarterly Report has shown that immigration to the UK for work has fallen to its lowest level since 2014. Though not confirmed to be a result of Brexit, EU net migration has fallen to a level last seen in 2009. Still, there seems to be no sign of a final Brexit decision on the horizon, so, at the minute it’s hard to predict how exactly the UK job market will be affected. However, at present, it seems to be business as usual in the recruitment sector, and migration to the UK continues to add to the population. Brexit or No-Brexit, Send My Bag are here to guide you when it comes to finding a job in the UK, as there seems to be no apparent fall in job prospects.
