Chris Williams – UK Sales Consultant – Plymouth University

I have really enjoyed my placement year at Golfbreaks.com and would highly recommend it to anyone. The responsibility you are given is exactly what you need to get the most benefit out of the placement year. Everyone is friendly and approachable, and you immediately feel part of the Golfbreaks.com team. The opportunities that have arisen over the year are ones I would not have had if I had not taken me placement with Golfbreaks.com. I have gained a variety of skills that will help me back at University but also in my future career.

Gemma Turner – UK Sales Consultant – Bournemouth University

Golfbreaks has been an incredible experience for me. Throughout the year I’ve gained so many new skills and experiences that I can take back to university and into my future career. The staff have been so good at welcoming us and making us feel part of the team. I am proud to say I completed my placement year here and am glad to have it for my CV.
