  • Description

    Hi, we're Nick & Lauren from London. We're going to be travelling throughout 2020 and looking to volunteer, pick up new skills and meet interesting people along the way.

    We both have backgrounds in Marketing, Lauren specialising in Social Media, and Nick covering all areas, so happy to put those skills to good use somewhere. Native English speakers (obviously!) with Nick speaking decent Spanish and Lauren putting the hours in on Duolingo to catch up.

    We're always ready to try new things, to get stuck in and are both easy-going people who love making new friends. We've been lucky enough to have visited some incredible places over the years, including South America, S.E Asia and New Zealand. Like most people, we've had some pretty crazy experiences so looking forward to swapping stories with you.

    Nick has had great experiences with Workaway on past trips. During his time in Colombia (6 weeks), the biggest project he got involved in was directing and editing a promotional film and helping to set up a Crowdfunding campaign for a new hostel, as well as offering marketing advice to improve their online presence. Beyond this, he helped out with bar work, picked fruit, assisted with construction, and learnt carpentry skills.

    Don't hesitate to let us know about your upcoming projects/ventures where we can lend a hand.
