*What we are looking for*

Someone who is passionate about travel and who has experience with running a blog and performing media outreach. This is the chance to join a fast-growing, profitable travel blog and be a key part in helping us to grow it massively in the next 12 months and beyond. You will be responsible for your own time management and work schedule but gain real responsibility to be a part of something exciting.

*One off:*

* Setting up Pinterest account and organising all initial tiles
* Developing a media pack for our business

*Ongoing weekly tasks:*

* Sending out 2 weekly emails, that you will write - 1 hr
* Posting everyday on Pinterest and re-pinning other boards (all in line with strategy you develop with us) - 3 hrs
* Posting regularly on Facebook (these can all be scheduled) - 30 mins
* Posting regularly on Twitter (these can be scheduled) - 30 mins
* Reaching out to companies (e.g. tour agencies and hotels) in order to build relationships and develop collaborative opportunities - 3 hrs
* Reaching out to high authority travel sites and agreeing on guest posting opportunities (finding the sides, finding the people to contact, agreeing on subjects to write and then letting us know what to produce) - 2 hrs

*What the ideal candidate will have:*

* Experience spent reaching out to brands for collaborations
* Good experience using Mailchimp and writing engaging and informative emails
* Lots of experience using Pinterest (both as someone who enjoys Pinterest and someone who has their own page). Please show success you have had using this
* Experience using photo editing software
* Understand the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes
* A good sense of humour and a positive attitude towards life
* A passion for travel
* A love for social media
* Excellent self motivation and time management skills
* 100% fluent in English
* A fun tone of writing

*What you’ll receive:*

* A rate of pay commensurate with the work performed each month (this will be negotiated for the right candidate)
* The chance to gain experience working with a fast-growing, up and coming profitable blog and to develop your digital marketing skills
* The chance to increase workload and pay as the months pass and we work together to grow traffic
* The ability to work from wherever you like and to be your own boss
* Plenty of banter

*To apply:*

* Send across any proof you have of success using Pinterest
* Any proof of previous email marketing campaigns you have worked on
* An example Pin based off the following post (we will not use this if you are unsuccessful in your application):
* https://www.dreambigtravelfarblog.com/blog/best-halong-bay-cruise-for-backpackers
* 200-300 words on the best place you’ve ever travelled to and why (or wish to travel to!). We will need this to demonstrate your fluent English and excellent writing skills

Please note: All applications that include a blanket response will be ignored.

Also: You will maintain full flexibility over your working schedule, so long as everything is performed on time. The only exception being Pinterest, where you will be required to be active on that every day for 30 minutes.

*When you will hear from us:*

All applications are currently being received. We will be contacting applicants we like and shall be holding video interviews on or around the 14th September (potentially earlier if the right candidate crops up).

_Please note that you are not an employee of Dream Big, Travel Far (DBTF). You will be responsible for your own taxes._
