Frequently Asked Questions

How much can I expect to earn?
The wage varies depending on the destination country. You will make more than a competitive wage for each destination.
Do I need travel insurance?

Yes. See the FAQ section on a specific destination page for more details on the visa needed for each country.

Can I do this program with my partner?

Yes. Please review the job requirements to ensure suitability though. We may be able to assist partners through our local connections too!

Which city should I choose to live in?

We have some subsidized housing available, however, see each destination page for visual maps on the areas we have work available and try to find housing within 30 minutes of those locations.

How will I get to work?

It is best to use public transit to begin, though we recommend pitching in for a car with some mates to make it easier. Living close by is the key!
