This Company Wants to Pay You To Spend Four Months Recording Epic Cycling Trips Across Europe and Africa (Video)
If you’re looking for a way to get paid while having time to explore the world, this internship from TDA Global Cycling just might be it.
The cycling company, which offers tours in more than 80 countries, is looking for a videographer to send on a four-month, all-expenses-paid internship to document two of their tours across Europe and Africa.
The candidate will journey with cyclists, producing videos of the locations they cross along the way.
The journey will kick off on Sep. 1 in Barcelona, Spain, where you’ll be traveling alongside the cyclists taking part in the company’s Trans-Europa tour as they make their way across Spain and Portugal to Lisbon.
From there, you’ll fly to Casablanca, where you’ll join the cyclists taking part in the West Africa en Vélo tour and spend two months with them as they make their way to Cape Coast, Ghana.
While you’ll have the ability to set your own schedule and production times throughout the trip, the company’s founder and former filmmaker, Henry Gold, will also be joining in the second leg of the journey to provide professional feedback for your recordings.
The company will pay for all flights, visas, travel insurance, vaccinations, food, and accommodations and provide additional shooting gear that includes GoPros, drones, and smartphones.
The company will also provide up to $1,000 in gear expenses, though applicants are expected to be able to supply a tent and camping gear, bikes, a DSLR camera, and a laptop while on the road.
Candidates must be at least 18 years old, have a valid passport, and have experience in video production and editing to apply. Knowing French is also a plus, though not a requirement.
To apply, you’ll need to enter a short video explaining why you deserve the position by June 1. The applicant will be chosen by July 1 before starting the journey on Sep. 1 and wrapping up on Dec. 31.
