  • Description

    Hello, I have turned another decade and taking time out, to travel, experience new things and different cultures. I am young at heart, good sense of humour, fit and healthy, hard working, organised and trustworthy.
    I like to meet new people and talk about their experiences and share knowledge. Happy to work alone, unsupervised, good common sense and considerate. Also I like to work as a team with all ages. I enjoy working outside, no matter what the weather and don't mind getting my hands dirty, but happy working inside too. I have done a fair bit of voluntary work in the past, similar to Workaway, helping on farms, including care farming with young adults with learning disabilities and autism.
    For 7 years I helped run a seasonal, mostly vegetarian, wholefood cafe in West Cork, Ireland, plus occasional shop work. Before that I worked for the NHS as a healthcare professional doing hospital and community work.
    In November 2017 I travelled around Poland for one month and took part in a 5 day Workaway intensive English speaking program for Polish adults, which I really enjoyed.
    January and February 2018 I was in India, travelling, plus some Workaway. I spent one month helping to cook for 20-30 people in north India and had a great experience.
    After that, I volunteered for 2 weeks at a YHA youth hostel in the South Downs, UK, helping in the kitchen and housekeeping.
    2019 summer's Workaway was spent on beautiful Clare Island, Mayo, Ireland for a wonderful 4 months, helping with their organic veg garden, cafe and housekeeping.

    I am already in Ireland and have been since the first lockdown in March 2020, therefore able to travel within restrictions.
