IEP Mission Statement
Empowering life-changing personal growth through international work and travel experiences.
IEP Core Values
Our participants are our number one priority. We are dedicated to going the extra mile and ensuring that they receive all the support they need to make their working holiday experience life-changing!
All of the IEP Staff have either lived and worked in a foreign country or experienced extensive global travel and as such are experts on the countries that we offer working holiday support for. We share that expertise with our participants to make sure they are as prepared as can be to travel to their future working holiday destinations.
We believe, wholeheartedly, that being transparent in everything we do is integral to ensuring we are delivering on our mission. Therefore, we will work continually to ensure that we communicate clearly within our team, with our partners and our participants.
Our partnerships are a core part of how we operate and collaboration with our partners, participants and employers at home and abroad. We will continue to foster these relationships and look to develop new ones as we understand they are important for growth.
If you have ever been to a career expo/fair or attended one of our information evening’s, then it’s likely you have run into Abbie!

Abbie has heard just about every question there is to have about a working holiday – and has an answer for all of them! Countries Traveled – 7

Myles feels super fortunate to have visited many incredible places, but the most recent two year stint in Canada has been the most rewarding. Canada’s diversity both physical and cultural are the things that make Canada so special to Myles. For fun Myles loves to play music, sports and do almost every outdoor activity! The most exciting thing about working for IEP is working in such a dynamic industry helping people experience the same things that he has been able to do in his own travels. Countries traveled – 17
Pippa does the best job holding down the fort in Australia for IEP. The greatest travel Pippa has ever done is on a STRAY through Thailand and Laos and when she isn’t jet setting about you’ll find her near a nice cheeseboard with a glass of vino in hand! All the different people she gets to meet and all the fun they have on their adventures is what gets Pippa out of bed in the morning and into the office. Countries – 34
Will spent a year at the Manitoba resort town of Asessippi and couldn’t rave more about the experience he had. The yarns this man will spin about the small town in the middle of Canada are the thing of legend. Will has a long history in the travel industry and the only thing that matters to him is that you have a good time when you get to wherever you are going. Countries traveled – 13
