Career breaks with Frontier Canada Career Breaks

Taking a career break

Taking a career break can be a brilliant way to gain perspective on your life, exploring both the world and yourself as you pursue an experience out of the ordinary. A career break can be the perfect transition between stages in your career or a career change; it can also be an opportunity to gain new skills or make yourself more aware of the issues we face as a global community, all of which will make you more employable in the future.

Taking a career break to do some volunteering illustrates you to be empathetic, yet also keen to make a positive contribution. It will also show you to be a conscientious and able to work as part of a team to create tangible, beneficial results.

Travel and volunteering in a career break also gives you the space and time you need to find new passions and places or rediscover old ones. This can be the perfect chance to re-find yourself later in life, while also making a positive impact with your travel.

What can you do in a career break?

Whether your career break is pure escapism or the chance for you to take part in some conservation or community volunteering, Frontier has over 300 projects across the globe and something to offer everyone.

You could try wildlife conservation in Madagascar, marine conservation and diving in Cambodia, teaching in India, surfing in Australia, track big cats in Costa Rica, or following the Inca trail on an adventure travel vacation in South America.

Teaching can be a great way to immerse yourself within a new culture and community, using existing skills and education to help improve others’ English. For those living in rural villages, education can be limited and learning to read and write as well as speak English can infinitely improve their living standard making volunteers a valuable resource.

See more in your career break by taking part in an ethical adventure trail. Combine volunteering with travel and explore cultural depths with a guide that works to create an itinerary suited to you.

Plan your career break
