Work less ordinary - spend a year in Australia!
Most of us work and save up to take that once-in-a-lifetime trip. But what if you're not keen on waiting, and want that adventure NOW?! Well, sounds like a working holiday is what you're looking for. Add some excitement to your life and explore the land down under while earning your pay: it's the perfect way to gain work experience, meet new people, and go all-in on a journey you'll never forget. Imagine waking up every day to new adventures, meeting new friends, and experiencing a whole new way of life.
Farmer is not your only career path...
So if you're not one to get your hands dirty, rest assured! Working on a farm or ''ranch'', as they call it is far from your only option when it comes to earning money in Australia. Yes, the traditional fruit picking is still an option, but there are plenty of opportunities in hospitality, especially during the Australian summer season. For example, we recently caught up with Amarins who spent some months working at a hostel in Sydney and had the time of her life doing so. There are plenty of other fun jobs around, though this blog is not here for the perfect career advice. Instead, we'd like to inspire you and assure you that you definitely don't need thousands and thousands of euros to treat yourself with that big once-in-a-lifetime adventure. We just have to be a little more creative, and for that you have come to the right place.
So, it's mainly about the pennies?
Not really, while taking a Working Holiday is a great way to finance your travels, there's way more to it than that. First of all, you get to stay longer and truly experience the destination country and culture. You will also gain valuable international work experience, and learn to deal with a new country, its people and its quirks. But more importantly, you'll make a whole lotta' friends in the process, both among locals and other travellers.
So, how do I find that desired job?
Well, to be honest, there's not one road to success here. But if you want yourself lined up for the best job opportunities we suggest to partake in a Working Holiday Meet Me package. With one of these, you get help from professionals in setting up everything you need, access to a job board for 12 months and even direct placements through our partner's inhouse recruitment service. The best thing though, is that we'll take you on a tour of your new surroundings with many activities included. It's a surefire way to make new friends and get to know Australia, whether you're landing in Sydney or Melbourne.
Starting in Sydney
And what about Melbourne?
In case you rather start your working holiday season in Melbourne we've created a package just as good, with the same awesome job support, just in a different city. This means the inclusions are tailored to Melbourne as well.
Among others, there's a trip to Grampians National Park the perfect spot for some kangaroo spotting. There are some refreshing waterfalls and stunning nature around as well. During your intro week the program takes you to the Great Ocean Road, one of the world's most scenic coastal drives, Marvel at the Twelve Apostles and other breathtaking coastal sights.
But it's not only about sightseeing, but also about finding new palls to hang out with in what's going to be your home country for the coming months. You'll have plenty of time for socialising and bonding at the Peninsula Hot Springs while dipping in the natural hot pools. During the evenings you'll meet up with the group over dinner, bonding over shared experiences and past adventures.
While we're here to ensure you have a great time, we're also committed to providing the backing you need to make the most of your working holiday. We'll help you find your feet in your new home and cater to your job and work related needs during your entire time in Australia.
So basically everything is arranged for me?
Almost! The only thing to think of is getting the right Visa for Australia, but if you want we can even help you out with that! Just let us know when you're reaching out about the Working Holiday package and we'll get you hooked up. What's left is just packing your bags!
