Backpackers say ” I have no idea where I will be going to next – so how can I book work 3 months in advance?” That’s because they are on holiday. They are travelling. They are not Working Travellers. If getting references on your profile is as important as getting that selfy at Machu Picchu – then you will want to be organised and have your itinerary  literally mapped out on your profile. Hosts can then search and see that you are coming by their way when they need you and book you up to use your skills for the work in hand.

Hosts – your dream team is here – you just need to reach out to them.

Working Traveller’s work search app enables a search of workers with particular skills required for your project. Click on the links below to see examples of our working travellers profiles.

Backpackers say ” I have no idea where I will be going to next – so how can I book work 3 months in advance?” That’s because they are on holiday. They are travelling. They are not Working Travellers. If getting references on your profile is as important as getting that selfy at Machu Picchu – then you will want to be organised and have your itinerary  literally mapped out on your profile. Hosts can then search and see that you are coming by their way when they need you and book you up to use your skills for the work in hand.

“Can’t get a job – they only want experience. So how to get the experiences?”

Build your references through your work placements

You have heard it many times. Employers want to hire people with experience. All those years of getting your degree seem to suddenly count for nothing. How do you get the work experience if no one will give you a job?  References from your Working  Traveller hosts – showing how you use your skills, that you are punctual, have a good work ethic and that you can make decisions.

Taking a pic with your Host doing the WT sign proves you where there   smily

Take a picture with your host – both doing the WT sign

Proving to employers you were there – proves the reference is 100%  real. Get pictures of the work you did, and a  ‘digital stamp’ proving you were there with your host making the WT sign. Add these pictures to your references after you receive them. It makes all the difference.

So like the pic of Ben  and his host shown to the left in Columbia, it proves he was there and did the work.

Become a Host and let the world come to you

Are you a host looking for motivated volunteers and travelling professionals?

Need experienced helpers who speak four  languages for the up and coming high season? Like to have some one come and set up all your social media? Want to know how much solar power you can generate? Thought of having a mural painted on that ugly wall? Dream of having home help or a maths teacher for the kids? I think you get the idea.
