Do you love to travel? Do you want to visit all of the best cities and countries in Europe? Do you want to get paid to do it? We may have found the perfect job for you.
Busabout, a free-spirited European and Asian travel company, is looking for two travel addicts to send on the trip of a lifetime.
That is correct. This company wants to send two people to Europe for five months, and pay them. Uh, yes please! Where in the world was this job in my pre-kid heyday?
According to the company website, Busabout is offering the “opportunity to experience Europe to its fullest, no catch.”
The winners will work as a team to produce regular travel-themed vlogs, as well as document their trip on social networks and the company’s blog.
The company is looking to hire two people with “an incurable travel addiction” so grab your bestie and apply as a team. But note, the two positions—brand ambassador and video producer—require different skill sets.
The brand ambassador position will be filled by an engaging storyteller who loves history. This person needs to have a knack for writing, be a natural in front of the camera, and the desire to share anything and everything via social media.
The video producer must pay sharp attention to detail, possess proven video editing skill, and have a creative mind with an out-of-the-box mentality. The right person for this position will also hold good project management skills, and have the ability to meet tight deadlines.
If either of these sound like you, you better get going±and fast! The deadline to apply is March 5.
The selected individuals will be expected to travel from April through September, so be prepared to clear your schedule. You must be 18 and are responsible for ensuring you have a valid passport or via required for traveling around Europe for 180 days.
The lucky winners should expect to hit up every major European hot spot. Just take a look at this map!
“From idyllic strolls along the Seine, visiting ancient castles in the Czech Republic and claiming the top of Europe in the Swiss Alps to sailing the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic coast, island-hopping your way to the most stunning Greek sunset, partying it up in Ibiza & having a stein (or three) at Oktoberfest!,” the website reads.
Wow! This job sounds amazing.
In addition to submitting a YouTube video showing off their skills, Brand Ambassador applicants are asked to submit photos via Instagram with the hashtag #busaboutambassador.
So far, over four thousand images have been submitted with that hashtag. And, honestly, each one is more impressive than the last—meaning the competition is fierce.
