Job Description & Person Specification:

Vacancies - CTR Travel Writers/Researchers/Reviewer positions 2017 Applications are now open!

CityTravelReview has recently been voted Winners of the category 'Best for Educational Working Projects 2017' held by the AI Business Excellence Awards.
This is for the second year running as the project won under the same category also in 2016.

CityTravelReview was also recently shortlisted in the Innovation & Excellence Awards 2017 http://www.corporatelivewire.com and we are pleased to already announce that we have also won under the category 'Excellence in Work Experience Services' CityTravelReview has been named one of the Top Rated International Internships of 2016 via GoAbroad. http://www.citytravelreview.co.uk-

City Travel Review (CTR projects) - 2017 project member positions in Berlin, Germany (with language learning element), and Edinburgh Scotland (without language learning), between March - October 2017. (3 weeks, 1 month, 2 month or 3 month team dates available)

The number of posts are limited and the applications close once the final team member has been selected which can be at any stage during the year.

Each year City Travel Review offers young people the opportunity to join their study/work experiences engaging in real-world working placement projects. Project members are usually undergraduates, post graduates, working people taking a short sabbatical or those taking time off before or after college/university.

CTR attracts young people that come from different backgrounds who are looking to gain valuable and diverse working experience, to learn a language from scratch or to improve on foreign language skills already acquired. Many project members wish to gain a fresh perspective on working life, add to their CV/resume or portfolio and many are looking to make a change in their career path by moving into industries relating to ; history/arts/culture/language/tourism/media/communication/ PR/journalism/language/research/ travel writing/photography/graphic design as well as many similar creative areas.

The project brief is to research and produce an online travel guide review to appeal to young people new to the city. All aspects of the task are undertaken by project members under the guidance of an experienced media team. CTR establishes working groups of members with complementary expertise so there is the chance of sharing and learning new skills. Whatever level of linguistic or media and research skills you have, you will be well supported.

The main criteria is that you love travel, enjoy learning, can demonstrate initiative, can work efficiently in a team, are well organised and have the ability to communicate effectively. Project members regularly attend team workshops and language classes (Berlin only). In the afternoons, they gain interactive hands-on experience working as travel researchers visiting places of interest often away from the usual tourist trail.

The team encourages project members to immerse themselves in the culture and real-life situations to gain an in-depth perspective on what makes the city and its inhabitants tick. Typical project related activities include exploring local districts, visiting entertainment spots of the city, delving into the delights and legends in the old towns, as well as checking out the main historical parts, attending walking tours, visits to museums, galleries and other popular landmarks of the city. Wherever you are in your life, a CTR project will prove to be a valuable, unforgettable experience.

You will be mixing with young like-minded people from all over the world who are looking to push personal boundaries, refresh their interests, open up new opportunities, expand their cultural education and have a great deal of fun in the process. For those who are seriously interested in becoming part of this opportunity, just drop an email on info@citytravelreview.co.uk requesting a project schedule. Once you know which project date and location you would like to join, ctr will send you an application via email.

Please complete and return this together with you CV/resume and a short e-mail briefly explaining why you would like to be a member of the team. Please note for those selected a project fee is due that covers accommodation, airport pickups, language tuition lessons, workshops and project related activities. Some project members do gain University/College credits or Employment credits, some teams do sell their guide and keep all profits made.

All project members have ample networking opportunities within the projects for those looking for further longer term posts. We support all past project members with help from verbal and written references and a certificate as proof of tasks undertaken.
