Sail off into a seasonal job!
A holiday job can take you to countries across the globe, as Ben found out:
‘I was a sailing instructor on the Cayman Islands and, as well as the fabulous location, I found that I came away with lots of new skills. it gave me experience of working both as an individual, as well as part of a team, and it boosted my confidence, being able to pass on my knowledge to others, and watch their talent develop. I discovered that one of my favourite parts was teaching those youngsters that perhaps didn’t initially want to learn or listen, and I felt a real pride once I’d engaged with them and their interest in sailing grew and developed.
‘The best part of the job for me was being outside in the sun all day. I also learned to scuba dive whilst I was out there and I mixed with people who I would not have met normally which, in turn, opened up further opportunities for me.
‘I could never have spent time in a location like the Cayman Islands without doing a seasonal job and, as a result, I still enjoy sailing today.’
