Cancun is hiring someone to experience and showcase everything that the Mexican city has to the offer over the space of six months – and they’re paying the lucky individual $10,000 (£7,650) a month to do it.
Cancun.com, a new joint venture between US and Mexican travel technology experts TravelPass Group and BestDay Travel Group, is seeking a “Cancun Experience Officer (CEO)” to spend six months swimming with sharks, exploring ancient Mayan temples, and lounging on white sand beaches and in luxury resorts – all while recording, blogging, and tweeting about their adventures.
Whilst capturing their time on Mexico’s southeast coast, the Experience Officer will be housed in luxury hotels and resorts – with all hotels, excursions, and equipment paid for by the travel company.
According to the job description, the successful participant will need to create, edit, and promote content that shows everything the island has to offer in video, photo, and written formats for Cancun.com and its social media channels.
No prior experience is required – the only requirements are that the winner is fluent in English and aged 18 or over.
The ideal candidate should also be an “outgoing, authentic, and hard-working individual (or team) who can skillfully showcase Cancun to an American audience, helping build excitement, trust, and recognition” around the city as a holiday destination.
Although the Cancun Experience Officer isn’t expected to be an expert on the local area, the lucky winner will need to “immerse themselves in everything Cancun” – including the activities, accommodation, food, beaches, people, and local culture.
The application is open to teams as well as individuals – and you can even take your family along.
To apply, candidates need to create a one-minute video explaining why they’re Cancun.com’s perfect experience officer candidate by December 17. The videos will then be voted om by the public, then boiled down to a shortlisted 100 candidates by a Cancun.com panel.
The winning candidate will be announced in January 2018 and will start their six-month adventure in March.
