Global Work and Travel

Global Work and Travel is a great company to use when getting to the country you would love to experience. Moving to a new country can be daunting but it was made easy with my travel coordinator Betty. They help every step of the way starting from just enquiring to introductions at orientation day ensuring a great start to a new country. I would recommend this company to others. If you want to experience a new country and no idea where to start, why not let someone do it for you. Thanks Global Work and Travel!

Pros
  • Good communication
  • Inclusions for arrival
  • Personal coordinator
Cons
  • Time differences
  • Flight and insurance expensive

the best ever!

Global Work & Travel has been an absolute godsend in helping me organize my working holiday in Canada. From helping me secure a job in Canada prior to leaving Australia, to helping me set up a bank account and phone number and go through the visa process- I would not have been able to do it without them.
My arrival coordinator Mark was so helpful- he was always available to answer any questions I had and made me feel so at ease with the whole process! Moving countries can be incredibly scary but GW&T genuinely made me feel so comfortable with every step of the way

Pros
  • Multiple job interviews set up for you
  • You have designated staff members helping you coordinate your trip
  • The process is SO much easier and stress free
Cons
  • Sometimes you may not get the job/location you want

Overall I've gotten great support and have been welcomed by the team and meeting other travellers who are also travelling solo has added a lot of value to the experience.

I would strongly recommend going with Global Work & Travel to anyone whos thinking of coming to Canada.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
One thing I would do differently would be to organise accomdation for when my stay at the hostel is up before I left for Canada

Comforting

My experience with Global work and travel was great, they were a warm and welcoming team that really made it easy for myself to settle into the new country. Eimear was always there to answer any questions we had, and would make sure we had everything we needed to make sure our departure and arrivals went as smoothly as possible. It was also great to meet like minded travellers from around the world that had singed up with Global work and travel.. just knowing that you’re not alone and there are people on the same boat as you is really comforting feeling and can add so much more value and excitement to your trip away from home.

Pros
  • Meeting new people from all around the world
  • Saves the stress of independent travelling
  • Constant support from the team and community
Cons
  • N/A

Amazing!! Would 100% do it again!

My experience was awesome! The team were always very responsive and made everything in my trip from NZ to Canada flow smoothly.
Eimear was always willing to help and happy to give advice and answer all my questions! And it never felt like I was asking too many questions.
I was excited to get to Canada but had no idea which area to choose, I knew I loved the outdoors and nature - and where I got paired with, it really hit the nail on the head!
Overall, I've felt so supported and welcomed by the team and meeting other travellers in the same boat as me helped add a lot of value to the experience. 10/10!!

Pros
  • Felt very supported and comfortable
  • Helpful
  • New experience
Cons

Global Work and Travel (Revelstoke)

Working with Global and my support coordinator Eimear was absolutely amazing, if you’re unsure whether to go through a company I would definitely recommend Global!
Revelstoke is a small little ski town but with lots going on in the summer (like, lots!) it’s perfect for a good work/life balance and a quiet place to enjoy the ideal Canadian weather!
I would say that it’s not the easiest to travel out of if you don’t have a car. There are bus services but they don’t run too regularly. It’s an amazing place for meeting people from all across the world because Revelstoke is such a sought after destination!

Pros
  • Opportunity to learn snow sports!
  • Meeting people from around the world
  • Good work/life balance
Cons
  • Not easy to travel out of (revy) without own transport

Mr Frank Morrison

Life in Canada has been an awesome and epic experience!
Have had amazing help from global and Eimear (they make everything so smooth and easy).
Never thought a working holiday would give me so many memories, friendships and joy.
Can only recommend anyone thinking about a next adventure to take this one and go for it.
If not sure what to do this or next year, I would definitely say that doing this will make you stronger physically and mentally with challenges that come through living in another country.

Pros
  • Well supported throughout your trip
  • Living in a new country made so easy
  • Making friendships and memories
Cons
  • If wanting to travel excessively, be aware that some jobs require 40 hours minimum a week
  • Some staff housing may be a tad dated
  • Solo travellers without a driving licence will need to make good friendships
