Calling all millennials …
Fancy being paid to travel the world and post your extraordinary experiences on social media?
An advert is out for a ‘Shore Explorer’, and the lucky job holder will enjoy visits to destinations including Alaska, Japan, Norway and Dubai.
And the icing on the cake is a once-in-a-lifetime tip to a private island in the Caribbean.
On landing the job, the chosen candidate will also be paid a salary equivalent to £104,000 a year for their troubles as they shadow expert photographer, Russ Francis.
It doesn’t even sound like it will be hard work. The only daily task consists of posting their experiences on Instagram, Instagram Stories and IGTV.
The successful candidate will be selected by an independent panel of judges including The Vamps’ guitarist James McVey and travel writer Nadia El Ferdaoussi.
The role is open to UK and Irish applicants.
Royal Caribbean International who offer the opportunity, will have its managing director Ben Bouldin helping to make the final recruitment decision.
Join the apprentice-ship
James McVey said: “My jungle experience taught me that you really can’t beat the thrill of exploring new destinations and experiences – whether on land or sea – and that’s what becoming a Shore Explorer is all about.
“I’m so excited to be working with Royal Caribbean to find the perfect person for this new apprentice-ship; someone who has a passion for travel, exploration and seeking out new and extraordinary experiences around the world.
“And, of course, they have to be brilliant at sharing their adventure online too.”
A Royal Caribbean International spokesman said: “We’re looking for an adrenaline junkie. Someone who is not only hungry for adventure, but has a unique ability to capture a moment in a simple social media post.
“We already offer a huge amount of incredible, once-in-a-lifetime, on-land experiences as part of our cruise holidays – from zip wires and white water rafting, to walking on glaciers and hot air balloon rides.”
