There are any number of reasons for wanting to take a gap year: perhaps you aren’t ready to progress straight from one course of education into the next, or maybe you’d just like to experience something a little more adventurous before settling into a full time career path. Whatever your reasons for wishing to enjoy a year out, getting a job whilst you’re travelling makes a lot of sense, and not just from a financial perspective.

Smaller Earth offer a wide range of gap year programs designed to find you work opportunities overseas that will be rewarding, memorable and perhaps even life changing! Whether you’d like to live with a host family as an au pair in China to experience a completely different way of life or you fancy rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck into demanding physical work in the Australian outback, or even if you just fancy an incredible summer job abroad. Smaller Earth can offer you the work abroad opportunity that’s right for you.

You need to think about what you’d like to get out of your gap year trip, whether you want the satisfaction of knowing you’ve helped make a difference by volunteering in an orphanage or if you’d just like to get a few things ticked off your bucket list in a wild adventure trip of a lifetime. That’s why Smaller Earth have such a varied selection of programs available, and we’ve hand-picked every one because they’re all things we love too!

Make new friends, see new sights and maximise your own self development opportunities by getting on board with Smaller Earth today.

An action-packed gap year is quickly becoming a rite of passage. Gap year travel can enhance your CV, provide you with all kinds of life skills and teach you more about yourself than you could ever imagine.

Why rush straight into the 9-5 life when you can work abroad, funding further travel as you go and living life like you're on an extended holiday? You can fill your gap year with one long programme, such as working as an Au Pair for a year, or change things up with a bunch of different programmes - go from training as a TEFL teacher in Prague, to a summer camp job in America, to a stint on a marine expedition in the Seychelles. It's your gap year, so work and travel your way.
