“I feel I am getting the best experience of my life, working in a different country and meeting new people. I have learnt many new skills already. I feel I am gaining experience in key marketing areas that I can transfer in my next role. I have learnt how to design and create web pages, guides for the clients and how to write marketing text.”
“Outside of work I am loving every minute of it, all my housemates are lovely and we try and travel around seeing as much of the country as possible. Not only am I experiencing working in New Zealand but I am experiencing living with people from all different nationalities.”
