    Good Workawayer

  • Description

    We are Rachel and Mairi, two friends aged 21 and 20, both studying at the University of Edinburgh.
    We would love to travel to Europe to work for a couple of weeks this summer. Having both volunteered previously in Eastern Europe, we would love to visit more of Europe again, experiencing a culture different to our own. We have experience of working in different contexts: with children, practical outdoor work, cooking and cleaning.

  • What skills do you have?

    We am happy to do any kind of work. Mairi has taught English and led craft classes in Kosovo so has experience of looking after children. Whilst in Kosovo, Mairi also did maintenance work - painting, cleaning, chopping wood etc. She has volunteered with a local GirlGuiding unit for several years. Currently she studies at University and loves spending time outdoors. She works in a deli during the summer serving customers. She enjoy cooking and whilst at university has helped to prepare meals for over 100 people. She also love working with children but will help with whatever work is necessary. Rachel also studies at the University of Edinburgh. She spent last summer volunteering in Romania with an engineering project and during her gap year, volunteered in Albania where she worked with the Roma community and taught sport in a local school. She is very active, loves being outdoors and meeting new people. We have both spent time living in group contexts so would be happy to do this again.
