    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    *Not currently available*


    My name is Milou and I live in the Netherlands. I'm 24 years old and at the moment working as a temp in health care, I'm a social worker.

    The spring of 2016 was my fourth time workawaying in England/Ireland. I usually stay 2-3 months in one place so I can truely get to know a little piece of the life my hosts live. I've also done part of my study in Ireland (Cork), so speaking English won't be a problem.

    As for work experience here in the Netherlands: a pepper nursery for two years, some administrative work for three years (I also helped out on their sheepfarm during this time). And the past five years I've had a part time job in a large family-based restaurant. I haven't been without a job since I was 14. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I don't mind working and I'm keen to learn new things.

    I'm an experienced rider and love handling horses, with a preference for natural horsemanship.
    If you have any questions about me that you'd rather ask another host..? Feel free to contact them (you can find a link to their profile below).
