The days are passé when a job revolved around ridiculous hours and meagre pays; now posts around the world allow you to explore new cities, a diverse range of experiences, coupled with a high-paying salary. I’ve instantly concluded that’s what most millennials crave these days.
Maestro of the seas, Royal Caribbean has an attention-grabbing opportunity – one might even say – once-in-a-lifetime; the first ever Shore Explorer ‘Apprentice-Ship’.
Here’s the job profile: A ‘global experience hunter’ seeking out new on-shore experiences for 2019, with a daily task of capturing their experiences on Instagram, Insta-Stories and IGTV.
The apprentice will be required to spend three weeks in the summer with Royal Caribbean travelling to a host of countries – Japan, Alaska, Europe and the Middle East – discovering shore-excursion possibilities. That and a six-figure salary; clearly, this is too good to be true.
From visiting a glacier in Alaska, exploring Osaka in Japan, white water rafting in the Norwegian Fjords and riding the world’s longest urban zip wire in Dubai, the apprentice will explore a plethora of jaw-dropping experiences globally.
A Royal Caribbean spokesperson said: “We’re looking for an adrenaline junkie who is not only hungry for adventure, but also has a unique ability to capture a moment and tell a story in a simple social media post.
Your interview will be taken by a selection of four judges namely; The Vamps’ writer & guitarist and contestant in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! 2018, James McVey; Ben Bouldin, Managing Director Royal Caribbean International UK & Ireland; Nadia El Ferdaoussi, Travel Writer; and former apprentice, Russ Francis
The application is extremely creative! Share your best travel story, image or video via Instagram or IGTV, tagging @RoyalCaribbeanUK and #ShoreExplorer position closes at 23:59 on 1st March.
The qualifications are awfully clear (and simple):
– Age must be 21 years or over
– Holding a valid passport
– Able to travel this year
