Last call to win the Ultimate Year Out

Last call to win the Ultimate Year Out

Thursday 22nd September 2011

Round-the-World travel + International work experience

After the dust of A Level results has settled and life is looking a little more predictable for many, there are still thousands of young people left wondering what to do with their unexpected freedom.

For many the opportunity of a gap year beckons, and now the focus has shifted from "do I?" to "how do I?" With recent research also showing that employers are looking for work experience to bolster young candidates' CVs, there is the added pressure of doing something worthwhile while travelling abroad.

The Ultimate Year Out was created with that in mind. It's a global competition for two lucky candidates to win a once in a lifetime, money-can't-buy opportunity to travel the world and gain international work experience. Mixing amazing travel experiences with guaranteed work placements in Real Gap and i to i Volunteering's global offices, the Ultimate Year Out will give two candidates the perfect starting point and one unbelievable gap year!

What does the Ultimate Year Out include?

The winners will travel and discover Thailand, South Africa, Australia and the USA. Whilst visiting some of the world's most stunning destinations and every gap year's hot spots, they'll be provided with the tools to report back via blogs and video. By documenting their fantastic experiences abroad, the winners will not only be armed with an arsenal of material to drive their Facebook friends wild with jealousy, they're also creating a potential portfolio to impress future employers. With guaranteed work experience in Boston, Melbourne and the UK as part of the Ultimate Year Out, this lucky pair will be bolstering their CV whilst they globetrot, setting themselves up for a head start on the fierce competition once they arrive back home.
