Third year student starts year abroad at Canadian Charcoal Pit

As part of the University of Manchester’s ‘year abroad’ scheme, undergraduate Catherine Brady has completed the 200 meter journey to Canadian Charcoal Pit, where she will be continuing her studies.

Despite being educated at Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Brady claims that she’s pretty hands on, and is looking to really immerse herself in some greasy labour.

“I really wanted to work in a fast paced, sales driven environment, and CCP just seemed to tick all the boxes.

“I’ve been on family holidays to Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Fiji, Austria, Switzerland, Greece, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, The Canary Islands, Dubai, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles, so I kind of wanted something new.

“I felt like I really wanted to push the boat out with my destination, and a kebab shop in South Manchester felt like the obvious choice.

“I also really wanted to do something social where I could meet lots of other students on nights out, so this perfect. They’re so authentic they even mirror the time difference, they start work at 11pm and finish at 5am.

“If I do enough networking, I should even be able to secure myself a few discounts for future.”
