The Letz Live Story

Letz Live has a passion for travel. And the way we see it, there’s no better way to see the world than by diving head-first into the local culture!

It all started in 2005 when our founder, Nick Hare, returned home to Australia from a year-long stint working as a gap year assistant in an international boarding school in England. Hungry to get the next generation of youngsters to jump ship and experience life beyond Oz, he planted the Letz Live seed whilst juggling a University degree – all at the spritely age of 18.

Fast forward, 15 years on and Letz Live has become a worldwide leader in overseas opportunities for young people offering Gap Year and Working Holidays across Australia, Canada, Thailand, New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom.

Letz Live Team

We are a team of young, passionate and knowledgeable individuals, bitten by the travel bug during our time living and working overseas, but who understand the pressures that follow leaving high school or university and locking in potential tertiary studies or career ambitions.

Over the years our team has expanded across the globe with country managers in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Although our team might be on the other side of the world, we are all close friends, with all managers speaking weekly, updating everyone on gap assistant’s progress and if there are any reasons for extra support or guidance, no matter what the programme.

A holistic

We realise how valuable travelling in a group is and how quickly new friendships and networks are created while you travel, and we believe your energy should be spent on creating new memories, instead of chasing visa applications. We take the stress out of your travels including hassles with flights, insurance and visas, by taking care of it for you. You can take comfort in knowing that all you need to do is arrive at your destination and be met by your hosts, we have the rest covered for you.

Paid opportunities abroad

Our aim is to allow those individuals with big hearts and positive attitudes to offer their skills and expertise to someone in a faraway land. Combining work and travel on a Letz Live program can add the sort of depth to your overseas experience that seeing the tourist sights simply cannot.

Our opportunities are as varied as they are unique, with placements available in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Thailand, the United States and the United Kingdom. Wherever it is you go, Letz Live will be there to help you every step of the way.

Where to next

If you are a year 12 graduate, a university graduate or generally ready to take a break and work overseas then we have a selection of a programmes for you to choose from. Letz Live is an organisation that knows and appreciates that sometimes going abroad means a little bit more.
