  • Description

    Hello
    I’m Robert, 24 years old and from Manchester, UK.

    I started using WorkAway back in October 2019 and since then I have been travelling Greece.

    Before I began my journey I used to work as an aircraft preparation assistant/trianee painter in Manchester, until being made redundant. From then I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to pack up and travel the world.

    Whilst I have been here in Greece, I have worked a wide variety of jobs, such as olive harvesting, light building and refurbishment, plenty of gardening and a waiter in a restaurant.

    I have been around a menagerie of animals throughout my life including pigs, goats, sheep, horses, dogs etc.

    I am easy to get along with and enjoy a good debate on any given topic.

    I'm always looking for a new adventure, learn news skills and to also meet different but interesting people, diverse cultures, make lifelong friends.
    I am keen to learn new tasks independently or to work in a group. I am at my happiest when working outdoors in a carefree manner. Working the land, helping to build new projects come rain or shine.
