We are seeking an Experteer to promote the commercial activity in the store of the company, and the recently opened Coffee Boutique.

Questions & Answers About this Opportunity


Hello, My friend and I are interested in this project. Would you agree to welcome two volunteers ? Thank you very much :) MArie
MArie, Sep 5th, 2016
Hi Marie, Thank you for getting in touch. In theory we could accept 2 people for the opportunity, it is a project that can be worked on in a team too however, our issue is with accommodation. We currently only have funding to host one person. If you could however, let me know what dates you are thinking of coming out then I can see if we could look at finding a second room. This would mean that you would not be staying in the same house and could also mean you are not staying in the same part of town as your friend. Kind regards, Andrea
