If you are after more than a run-of-the-mill retail or bartending job whilst studying at university this year, National Rail’s 16-25 Railcard is looking for aspiring adventurers to apply for Britain’s ultimate part time job.
The 16-25 Railcard allows users to save 1/3 on train fares throughout Great Britain and sees thousands of students using the network for travelling to university and visiting friends across the country; so this year, National Rail wants to offer a truly unique role for a explorer up to the challenge.
The 16-25 Railcard’s brand new role of Chief Adventure Officer (CAO) will see one lucky traveller tasked with vlogging their way around some of Great Britain’s most popular tourist destinations and be paid £10,000 for the privilege. To us, this sounds like a pretty sweet deal to be able to see the very best sights Britain has to offer. From getting lost in the world-famous Hampton Court Maze, trampolining in Snowdonia, indulging at the world-famous Choccywoccydoodah chocolate shop or surfing along the Jurassic Coast, budding explorers have the opportunity to be the envy of everyone on campus with this ultimate part-time job.
Key requirements for the role include having an adventurous spirit, a natural curiosity for exploring new places and the desire to share travel experiences with the world.
Daniela Maki, Product Manager from National Rail, said: “Getting paid to travel is a lot of people’s dream job and now we are making it a reality for one lucky person. We are looking for a real adventurer, someone who lives to explore new places and loves telling the world about their exciting travels.”
“Whether you’re heading to university or not, the 16-25 Railcard saves you cash, helps you visit interesting places and spend money on the things you enjoy the most, so we thought why not take that to the next level for one lucky candidate?”
“Our new CAO will get the chance to visit some really amazing locations and inspire us all by showing the exciting places Great Britain has on offer.So if your suitcase is always by the door, just in case, and you are looking for your next adventure this is the perfect new job for you.”
