We didn’t post any new jobs to our Jobs Abroad Bulletin over the Christmas and New Year period as we assumed anyone with any sense would be more concerned with shovelling mince pies down their gobs and getting drunk than with looking for a new job.
A new year though often brings a resolve for change and I’m sure a lot of us are thinking of doing something new and interesting this year. Those with camera skills could be in the Greek Islands taking photos of water skiing holidaymakers from the back of a speedboat, or you could be a chef taking up this opportunity in New Zealand.
Last year one of our readers got in touch via our Facebook page to tell us of the fantastic job in Southeast Asia he found through our boards. The same advertiser, an island resort off the coast of Malaysia, is currently looking for a spa therapist. Staying in Southeast Asia, InsideVietnam require a tour leader to lead their groups around Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Burma.
We experimented with a graphic ad for the first time this week as TEFL 247 reduced the price of their IELTS and TEFL course from €530 to €85. LoveTEFL are also celebrating the new year by reducing the price of their 120 Online TEFL Course from £235 to just £99. If your English language skills are written rather than verbal then it may be possible to earn $25 to $35 from this UK blog.
Camp jobs don’t have to be in America (a subject we hope to cover next month). Those eligible to apply for a Singapore Working Holiday Pass can apply to Camp Challenge, who is looking out for talented and dynamic individuals to join their crew of international instructors. In Spain, Baker Street International is running a winter camp in Vitoria for Spanish kids to spend a week immersed in English, with a variety of workshops, sports and other activities in the company of native speaking teaching staff.
Over to Africa, where the Centre for Education, Research and Conservation of Primates and Nature (CERCOPAN) is in need of a primate sanctuary manager. This voluntary position is based at a primate rehabilitation centre (in southern Nigeria. Room, board, flights and a local stipend will be paid for a two year contract, though a one year arrangement may be considered depending upon skills and experience. More volunteers, this time in Greece, are needed for an eco-village. Minimum stay is one week.
