  • Description

    * Currently making my way through Brazil looking for projects and volunteering roles along the way, can I join you?

    Having grown up on a farm in the north east of England I am used to getting my hands dirty. Honest and physically demanding work is something I really enjoy.
    I have been working in and around pubs and bars since the age of 14 where I began washing dishes in the local pub. Anything bar or kitchen related shouldn’t be an issue for me, and if there is something I don’t know then learning about it would be a welcome challenge.
    I love animals and am fortunate enough to have grown up surrounded by them, caring for your pets or livestock wouldn’t be an issue!
    I am a massive sports fan & have played almost every sport you can think of, so if your work is sports related then I would love nothing more! I am a qualified squash coach for adults as well as children and would be more than happy to coach anyone who has access to courts and some rackets! I also have experience at group coaching should friends and family also be keen to get involved.
    I love learning new things and i'd like to think i'm a quick learner. Throwing myself into new projects and having different challenges is one of the main reasons I take a part in the workaway culture, the opportunity to learn something different and challenge myself is something I thrive on.
    I enjoy travelling and love to meet new people from different cultures with varying opinions & outlooks on life. I am extremely fortunate to be in this position and appreciate any opportunity given to me.
    Hope to hear from you soon!
