WTC... the best!!!!

I loved WTC as a program through which to work and travel in Australia. I was only 18 and it was my first time living on my own when I first moved to Sydney with WTC, and they made what should have been an extremely difficult transition much easier. Everything was super well-organised & they helped me with so many logistical aspects (a phone, a bank, etc); they had a great first week of super fun activities planned for travellers to enjoy, get to know Sydney, and make new friends; and every staff member is really helpful & friendly!! I'm getting ready to travel the rest of Australia but I wouldn't be able to do it without the help of WTC in regards to booking activities, accomodation, etc, and I certainly wouldn't be able to do it without the money I earned from the job WTC helped me get as well!!! Overall, it is an absolutely fantastic company that has really enriched my time in Sydney and I would recommend it to anyone.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If I could do this all over again, the main change I would make is to be more open to new people and making friends. Even if it's overwhelming at first it's really beneficial in the end!!!

From Australia with love

I arrived in Sydney in Australia on the 1st of December 2016 ready to start my adventure. With me I had a big backpack. After travelling for almost 2 days I felt relived to have arrived even though I knew I still had to find the hostel. At the hostel I shared a room with 5 other girls. Little did I know that one of them would become one of my best friends here in oz.

After 1 week in the hostel I attended the information meeting at The Work and Travel office. Here I met a girl from the Netherlands and we decided to attend the 1 week Surf Camp tougether. She is also now one of my friends.

The Work and Travel agency has been there for me since day one and I am very grateful for that. Knowing that I could come and talk to them no matter what I needed to talk about. They would e-mail or call me to check up on how I am doing.

They get a lot of jobs through the agency and I was lucky enough to work with the Captain Cook Cruises for the Vivid festival. It was a great experience that will stay with me forever.

After 6 months in Australia my journey have now changed from being a backpacker to wanting to stay here and build my life here.

Work & Work & Travel

I became a returning customer for work and travel when I came back to Australia for my second year visa.
The WTC fun week is the best way to be thrown straight into the must do activities in Sydney with a big group of new friends. It gets you ticking things from your to-do list from day one. Nearly six months later I'm still in touch with most of my fun week group and I'm even living with some of them (we get noise complaints every night).
Probably the first (but not last) great night out I had in Sydney this year was the WTC pub crawl. I really didn't expect to be part of at least 30-40 people cramming into each place. It really set the pace for my working holiday so far.
Since the first week I've been getting consistent work through the jobs desk. Without them it would be seriously hard to get by in Sydney.
