    Customer Review
    Scotia personnel is such a great company that gave me a great opportunity. I have always enjoyed traveling, expanding my comfort zone, learning new cultures, tasting new foods and making new friends. Thanks to Scotia Personnel I got to experience all of this ! Summer 2017 was one of the best time of my life, I got to work as an English tutor in Turin, Italy where I taught English and planned after-school activities for kids during the week. On the weekends I would travel around, I got to see different cities of Italy like Milan and Noli. I also got to see Champs Elysees and the Eifel tower in Paris, and the beautiful city of Lyon in France. I visited Zurich and Sion in Switzerland and also Brussels in Belgium. Eleanor Roosevelt could not have said it better “The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” Thank you Scotia Personnel for everything, I made memories that I will always cherish.

    Scotia personnel is an incredible company! The vast opportunities they offer has something for everyone. They treat everyone like family from the moment you walk in their door. Creating opportunities all around the world with your safety being their number one priority. I could not say enough good things about this company. I just recently came back from tutoring in Italy and I wanted to share how amazing my experience was! It was honestly the best summer of my life and I am so grateful for every thing that Scotia personnel did for me; Thank you so much. I made so many friends while travelling who I am already planning on going to go see. The food was so good In Italy. I have done a fair amount of travelling but have never had an experience as authentic as this one. Living and working with a host family I picked up Italian so easily being completely immersed in it. Obviously the locals no all of the best spots and my host family was so excited for me to fall In love with their country that they took me everywhere. Paying for everything. They also took me to Switzerland and Germany so not only did I get to go to one country I got to experience 3. The two little girls will forever be like little sisters to me. I encourage everyone to participate one of the many programs offered the hardest part was choosing what country to go to. The experience was extremely safe and organized and I am very happy to have worked with Scotia personnel.

    Great opportunity
    Working as an English tutor in Italy was an experience I won't ever forget. I would like to thank Scotia Personnel for the opportunity. Having the opportunity to live in Italy for three months was amazing. My host family was great, they were very accommodating, generous and welcoming, and the kids I looked after and tutored became like younger siblings to me, and made me feel like part of the family. They even invited me to stay with them again next year. When not working, I had time off on the weekends, where I would travel to amazing places around northern Italy, or hang out with my host family, where we would go on their boat around Lake Como, where we would swim, wakeboard, and occasionally watch fireworks. I also got to eat so many delicious foods as well as have ice cream or gelato almost every day, something I don't get to do in Canada. My experience working in Italy gave me the confidence to solo travel and I was able to meet new and interesting people, as well as getting to experience a different culture, cuisine, and environment that I hadn't before. I would definitely recommend this wonderful opportunity and experience. Overall my time in Italy, and working as a tutor was great, and I would love to get the opportunity to go back again.

    My year as an Au Pair
    Why being an Au Pair was the best experience of my life. Well, it’s not complicated if you like to travel, discover and have fun, that’s the best way to do it! I met extraordinary people from all around the world. It give me the chance to step back and see who I really wanted to be, learning about enjoying every moment of my life and seeing only the positive in everything. Leaving your comfort zone, families and friends to work in another country can be daunting but it’s worth it. The program organized all the necessary documents and arrangements and made it so easy for me. I spent one year in California with an amazing family caring for three little girls, twins of two years old and the oldest was four. My Host’s made me feel welcome and like a part of their family from the beginning. Together we traveled to Hawaii, San Francisco, Disneyland and France. Looking after the children both at home and on these vacations was challenging and rewarding. Kids can teach you so many things without knowing it, they are always living in the present. They teach you how to relax by doing finger painting or blowing bubbles in the backyard. They have so much imagination and can be so refreshing, they bring back the best memories of our childhood. After completing my year I felt extremely proud of my accomplishments. It was an excellent experience for personal growth. I am now studying Fashion at the University of Quebec in Montreal and attribute some of my success to the knowledge and experience i gained as an Au Pair. This experience changed my life and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Amazing Adventure and Company
    Back in 2013-2014 I was an Au Pair in England though the agency. They helped me every step of the way and made getting a job I loved very easy. I am very grateful for the experiences I had because of them and would work with them again in a heartbeat. If you are thinking of working with the agency I would love to answer any questions you may have!

    Upcoming Trip in China!
    I was attending Algonquin College in 2010-2012 for the Hospitality Management program when Scotia Personnel came into one of my classes and told us about their travel and work abroad opportunities. Myself and two other students in the class signed up and went abroad to England through their hotel and hospitality program they offer. While there I met a lot of amazing people, traveled through many different countries in Europe and had a fantastic time. Since returning to Canada, I have recommended the program to several friends and even a cousin who is currently in Australia with this company. Now that I am graduating, I have signed up to do a tutoring program in China starting in September and am very excited!

    Soctia Personnel Review
    As I celebrate 1 year in London this week I wanted to say that I am grateful to Scotia personnel because they gave me the nudge to move to a new country. To leave the comfort of home and both fulfill my travelling desires while gaining work experience. To move to a new country and already have the job and accommodation set up in central London nonetheless was a blessing. Made the entire transition that much easier and they dealt with all the paperwork making it less stressful(moving countries will burry you in paperwork). The job security allowed me to travel on my days off and holidays. With London as my base I developed a obsession with booking flights. They opened a door for me that allowed me to experience so much in such a short time and meet the greatest friends from all over the globe. Thank you !!! Xx

    I had the pleasure of working with Scotia personnel through my experience as an au pair one year in the states and following with six months in China. I've always dreamed about traveling and experience another culture but never knew how or where to start. I heard from college school mates and family and friends about this angency so naturally this was the way to go. And I can't tell you enough how an amazing feeling it is to put ideas and dreams into reality. Highly recommend going with this Agency to travel abroad with.

    Customer Review
    I knew since I was 16 that I wanted to do some sort of travel experience before college. When I was 18 I heard of a friend who was an au pair in Holland and knew I wanted to do it as soon as Iwas done high school before going off to College. I asked a girl in my town that had been to America for a number of years au pairing and she introduced me to Scotia Personnel Ltd. Right away I felt all my worries wash away once speaking with the team and experiencing first hand their willingness, helpfulness and knowledge. They knew the answer to all of my questions and had plenty of information for me. I filled out an application and met with Marilyn for an interview. I considered all the great countries the agency partners with and decided with England- it had been a dream of mine! Weeks later at 18 from a small town and fresh out of high school I packed up my things and took my first flight ever and flew across the pond. I’ll admit I wasn’t scared or nervous at all before leaving but that first night after moving in with my family I thought, oh gosh what did I get myself into? I slept off the doubt that night and didn’t look back the 6 months I was there. I lived in Margate, a sea side town on the south east of the UK. I lived right on the ocean with beautiful stunning views and salty air. If that wasn’t awesome enough they also had a flat in a super trendy part of London. The flat was amazing. All around us were gorgeous shops, delicious and authentic international cuisines, and beautiful, unique art wherever you went. Thanks to this flat and generous family I was able to spend the weekend in London for Prince William and Kate’s Royal Wedding! That is something I’ll never forget, and yes I did take a picture of them kissing on the balcony of Buckingham Palace. I met some au pairs with help from the agency and we went and travelled all around the UK and Amsterdam. I took care of a 2 year old that had daycare some days during the week so I had plenty of time to meet fellow au pairs from all over the world and travel. After settling in and feeling like family I went on my first trip...all alone...to Paris. It was amazing! I did my research so I knew where to go and where to get help if I needed it. I may have travelled by myself but I met so many like minded people on that trip that they felt like friends right away. That’s the beauty of travelling, staying in safe hostels allows you to meet people looking to travel and meet others along the way. With my host family and as much as we enjoyed each other’s company we also respected each other’s privacy and space which was comforting. After a sad goodbye and jet lag, 1 month after being home I went to college and became a nurse. Since coming home and having my family hear about my experiences, they too went through Scotia Personnel. My cousin went to Australia and my sister is currently in Holland for 1 year with Scotia Personnel. They knew how much I loved my experience, and the good times I had with great help from the agency, that they tried it out for themselves. My younger cousin also can’t wait until she is done high school and au pair as well. I'm genuinely so pleased with my experience as well as my families', I'm able to speak on behalf of 3 different countries, families, lengths of stays and experiences. I can’t say enough about Scotia Personnel or my experiences. I love the program and the way it changed me. Looking back I’ve grown so much as a person. I became more independent, social, outgoing, adventurous and open minded. I gained incredible life experiences, saw some of the world, and made lifelong friends. I recommend this to everyone. If you are seeking new opportunities, want to travel, meet new people, or find yourself along the way then I want you to click this link and let it change your life for the better like it did mine.

    Wonderful Experience
    I am currently working in a hotel in the Caribbean thanks to the help and guidance of Scotia Personnel and I am absolutely loving it. This is the fourth job I have obtained with the help of the company and I love each more than the last. The first one I did was 3 summers ago, and it was the summer camp program over in the UK. The UK has a very work hard, play hard mentality and that is the best way I can sum up those 2 months. The other staff members at the camp were a mix of Canadian, English as well as a few from Spain, and even South Africa. I speak to a good amount of them still, and 4 of my very best friends to this day I made while working overseas in England. The next job I pursued was the summer camps in Italy, and while those few months were few different than mine time in the UK, they were equally as rewarding and genuinely fun. Italy has a very different culture than England, but I loved every second of it, and got to do so much travelling while moving around to teach English, which allowed me to explore and live in a variety of towns and cities across Italy. I was also able to au pair following my time working at the English Summer Camps. My time in Italy, will in June be 2 years ago, but it still feels like it was just yesterday because I enjoyed it so much. Currently, I am living in the Caribbean working at a hotel and again, loving it. Undoubtedly, the best thing I ever did was call back Scotia and meet with them for an interview. I urge everyone to take the time to read through the different opportunities that they have available, and make sure you choose the one or ones best suited for you and you will undoubtedly love it. And it will help shape not only your resume, but more importantly you as a person! And you will honestly meet lots of wonderful people along the way.
