We are following enhanced procedures to minimise the risks of Covid transmission.
Our locally-hired, highly trained teams on the ground maintain strong and constant communication with our Head Office. This allows us to have first-hand information and insight in real time. We never work with external contractors, but also because hiring our own staff means that we can instantly make changes to the way we operate should the need arise.
Your Operations Manager, who works directly with our overseas teams and who knows the country and the hospital you’ll be placed in inside and out will contact you well in advance of your departure to go through all of these measures for your arrival.
Once you’ve arrived in-country you will also receive an in-depth induction from our overseas teams to reiterate all measures we have in place.
You will not be staying in a homestay. You can also feel safe knowing that you’ll live in our privately run, exclusive accommodation, accessible only to you, your housemates and our in-country team. Each Work the World House now operates with established Covid safety measures.
Your personal online placement planner (MyTrip) will have all the latest information on all measures relevant for the country you’re travelling to.
We have incredibly strong relationships with our partner hospitals and the local authorities in all locations. Depending on the hospital's regulations you may be required to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) within their healthcare settings. You will be advised of this in advance of your arrival.
Whichever Work the World programme you decide to travel to, our enhanced procedures will be in place. And, as with every other aspect of our service, these protocols will be tailored to the specific needs of each destination.
