  • Description

    Hi, I am Thomas, English, on a Working Holiday in Vancouver for 2 years. I am currently working as a Travel Consultant at a national travel agency. If you need help planning your travels and booking flights, tours, cruises and insurance please contact me. I am living in Kitsilano and am happy to meet up with other travelers and socialize with fellow Workawayers.

    ...................................................
    I recently completed 2 months Workaway at an Airbnb in Victoria, Vancouver Island.
    Before arriving in Canada, I was travelling and volunteering in South America for 18 months and have done several workaways in Peru, Argentina and Brazil.
    I enjoyed socializing, meeting new people/locals via Workaway and did some amazing volunteering placements.
    I am happy to do any work and have a broad background and interests in work and life:
    I graduated with a Law Degree from University in September 2013, from Birmingham.
    I recently completed a two-years as an Operations Manager in one of the UK's largest businesses, Royal Mail.
    I like the slower and authentic experiences of traveling - meeting local people and learning about others' cultures and languages, whilst also helping others and do rewarding work.
    I am a hard-worker and open-minded to most opportunities.
    I am laid-back, sociable and friendly.
    I am honest and reliable and keep to my promises.
    I have worked in various jobs including retail, restaurants, bars, hotels and events venues, supermarkets, with kids, factories and more. I have a clean British Driving Licence.
    I am a keen Skiier and love outdoor activities and adventures.
    I have completed my Advanced Open Water Diving in the Philippines.

    Please feel free to reach out/get in touch and send me an email, any opportunities welcomed :) I look forward to meeting you!

    Below is extract from a reference from the Owner/Manager of the events venue/hall I have worked at for four years:
    "Tom began as a glass washer and has worked his way up to being a bar tender and bar manager. This increasing responsibility has coincided with his increasing maturity and ability to handle a wide range of jobs.
    Tom has always been trustworthy, on time, efficient and willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to help serve our sometimes very demanding guests. He is personable and popular with his fellow employees.
    I would not hesitate to recommend Tom for almost any job. He is smart and would be quick to pick up any new tasks put his way."
