South African’s are hard workers, we are not afraid to get stuck in. Along with our work ethics and friendly attitude we are in high demand overseas.
The South African hospitality industry and golf clubs are in great shape and supply solid experience for waitrons, pro shop assistants and golf attendants. South Africans know their stuff and excel at providing good service.
Wherever I go in this country, when I am promoting Workaway International, I see South Africans with their smiling faces, great service ethic and cool, interesting stories; I know they would do well on the Workaway programme. Some of the people I meet in local restaurants or hotels have already worked in Europe and USA and are now putting the skills they developed to good use. Some of those I meet wish they had made use of the opportunity to travel when they were younger.
