You + 5 months of traveling in Europe with all expenses paid = the best gig of life.

Busabout is currently looking for two travel addicts to document their journey through Europe this year for five months. The company will pay for all expenses, including airfare to Europe, accommodations, a daily food allowance and a fee for successful completion of the position.

The Job

The two brand ambassadors will need to document their trip on camera and report back to other travellers about their adventure. One person will be the “brand ambassador” or the host and the second person would be the “video producer”.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Produce regular video blogs for Busabout’s YouTube channel
  • Document your adventures on Busabout’s social media networks and blog including behind the scenes videos and travel diaries
    • Be on social media – such as Snapchat and Instagram
    • Produce regular travel-themed vlogs
    • Blog (Click here to see example posts)
  • Deliver briefed content within stipulated deadlines
  • Report regularly to the marketing department
  • Travel Europe – from partying it up in Ibiza to sailing the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic coast, and everything else in between.

Criteria

For both positions applicants must be over 18 and able to travel for five months continuously between late April and late September 2017. You’ll need a valid passport (for at least 180 days) and are a person who enjoys creating content.

Brand Ambassadors or hosts must love storytelling and have a knack for writing. Candidates should be comfortable in front of the camera and feed off of social interaction. Being a social media junkie and having an incurable travel addiction are important as well.

For the Video Producer position you’ll need to have attention to detail and proven video editing skills. A creative eye is a must with the ability to meet tight deadlines. A travel bug is a good asset while also having good project management skills.

Hopeful producers will have to tell Busabout why you’re right person for this job by submitting a YouTube video, maximum of 2 minutes, showcasing your location and editing skills. Let Busabout know the tools you’ve used by including a list of gear and software you’re familiar with.
