    Hi torz,

    I am not going to do a tour when I go over, I will be hopefully going straight into a job Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I am doing a couple of tours at the end of the year though – Winter Wanderer and Ski Austria.

    How about you?

    Im originally from taranaki. oh how exciting!!! i can’t wait for mine. 6 months should go fast though since christmas/new years (crazy busy work time) is in between. and im finishing work 3 weeks before i go. what kinda job are you looking at getting when you get over there?…

  • 16 Nov 2010 Bunty said

    Bunty

    Yeah I am sure it will go fast Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I don’t get back from Europe until Feb 10 so I am hoping I am only back in NZ for 3 months before I shift! Ummm IT work, I have been doing it for long enough now that I should be able to get a job just on experience alone!

    you should get the uk pub job package nikki. ask your travel agent about it?…are you going through sta travel?…thats who i’m with and they have great starter packages. you let them no when you can start and you live at the pub. get discount on meals, get to meet lots of people.work with other people in the same boat as you. min of 4 months. i just love how when i leave nz i no i have a job and have sumwhere to live. thats the most important thing

    Yea but the pay looks terrible! lol And i don’t have any bar experience… i found a job agency that does the same thing except with office/ administration jobs specifically for kiwis & aussies moving to uk, might give that a try!

  • 17 Nov 2010 Ashlee said

    i dont have an experiance either. they say you don’t need any. they teach you everything. the pays alil poor because you don’t have to pay for rent at all. and you get some free/discounted meals. but yea it is long hours. but it will be fun. i no lots of people that have done it. im an organise freak so the idea of knowing i have something when i leave nz is perfect for me. but yea im prob only doing it for like 4-8ish months at the max then into my feild of work.

    So do you already have a confirmed job when you arrive there Ashlee or do you have to go for interviews n stuff?

  • 17 Nov 2010 Ashlee said

    Ashlee

    not at this moment as i haven’t applied for my package yet. doing that in jan. you don’t have to do interviews, its set up for you when you get there. when do you fly in and where are you staying before you go on your tour missliz?..

  • 17 Nov 2010 Ashlee said

    Ashlee

    what date does your tour start nikki?…and where are you staying before it?… i hear that along the way you meet other contiki groups and other tour groups at your hotels/contiki villages etc. so we might actually see each other along the way.
