Why getting paid work experience is right for you

16 May 2014

Work experience is great for many reasons. People use work experience to become more qualified for a job, to enhance their CVs, or even to see if they actually like a certain job, so that they can decide whether or not to consider it as a future career. Getting paid work experience might seem impossible, but here at Twin Work & Volunteer we are making it possible for you to learn new skills and get paid to do it! So, sit back and read about these amazing paid work experience opportunities we have on offer.

Are you looking to boost your career prospects in the UK? Well, no better way to do so than to join the Hospitality Training Programme (HTP). This programme is usually taken by students who want the  chance to use their English skills in a working environment, and who want to enjoy a cultural experience of the UK in beautiful rural areas. The HTP allows you to gain vital work experience and looks impressive on your CV, and the best thing about it is that you will be earning money!
