Boulot : Venir c’est le tenir !

Si vous avez un bon niveau en anglais et que vous voulez bosser en Angleterre, il n’y a rien de plus simple.

Ma boite cherche désespérément à embaucher. Vous pouvez voir les offres d’emploi qui suivent et voir celle qui vous correspond. X-Cel est situé à Camberley, l’Ouest de Londres, pas très loin de Reading. Cette compagnie est très jeune et très dynamique. Personnellement, je fais du sport tous les midis avec des collègues, je sors au moins une fois par semaine avec eux et on est même partis une semaine au ski ensemble. C’est vraiment une ambiance étudiante, le vrai Club Med. Sans compter que les horaires sont de 9h a 5h30 (pas comme à Paris…), que le salaire est supérieur a ce que vous trouverez en France et que le boulot est intéressant (en ce qui me concerne).

N’hésitez pas a me contacter par e-mail, par téléphone ou par courrier si vous voulez plus d’information ou si vous voulez envoyer votre CV (en anglais bien sur).
