UK Hotel Program

My Experience

My experience with this organization
Scotia Personnel came to Algonquin College discussing their different travel and work opportunities, and through them I got to spend 1 year working at a Hotel in London, England after I graduated. The experience was unforgettable and the staff was friendly and super helpful. My friend and I got placed in great hotels close to each other and together we were able to travel around Europe and had an amazing time! Because of Scotia Personnel I got to spend my 20th birthday in Madrid, and was able to meet and live with people from all over Europe. I had a great time, and am looking forward to doing another program through with them!

Awesome Program!

My Experience

My experience with this organization
My experience with this company has been 100% positive! I got a job through them working over in holland as an au pair! They were friendly, easy to reach (I was a little nervous at first, so I called them daily!) and they didnt mind taking the time to answer my endless questions!!

24
Reason I wanted to do this program
I wanted to get out and explore the world a little. I had finished university and realized that I had no idea what i wanted to do next! I found this job on my school site and thought that this would be an absolutely perfect way to get out and see the world, as i love working with childern and had never been to Europe before. This was a perfect way to go, because i had a place to stay, 3 meals a day and also the support of a super nice family that treated me like i was one of their own! I would never have been able to afford it otherwise!
Previous experience relevant to this program
Babysitting experience, nannied for one summer and did some volunteer work at the boys and girls club!

Great experience working abroad

My Experience

My experience with this organization
Going to an Italy summer camp was an experience I will never forget. Thanks to Scotia Personnel Ltd. I not only got to fulfill one of my biggest dreams of going to Italy I was able to find a job at a summer camp so I could spend my time working with children, another passion of mine. Another perk to working abroad is travelling and Italy was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. I will never forget the warm sun, smells of the most delicious pastries in the air and seeing renaissance art in person. Scotia Personnel Ltd. gave me a dream come true.
Program I participated in
