"Thanks at the best three months of my life ... The support I received was extremely helpful ... I really would recommend Travellers to anyone. Keep up the good work. Stuart Savidge

I had a thoroughly enjoyable time working for Auckland Cricket in New Zealand. I have always had a keen interest in cricket, as well as a coaching background in the sport so this internship gave me an ideal opportunity to test my knowledge and competence in the real world as it were!
I have made some great friends through work and fellow volunteers, all of whom will be missed greatly. I feel like I have learned a lot and hopefully this will provide future employers something to stand out from the crowd!
