With everyone being in a similar boat, you’ll be sure to make loads of mates in no time. Your accommodation for the summer will be organised for you and will be in very close proximity to your work. Dormitory and apartment style accommodation are common with our employers, and this setup is a great way to get to know your fellow colleagues. Dependent on your employer, you will often get one to two days off per week. Most jobs are in resort towns and by the beach, giving you endless ways to enjoy your free time.

    Work's over, now what?

With all the awesome new friends you will have made, you may spend your summer planning the most ultimate of road trips.
