Gap 360, the definitive new gap year travel company launching this autumn has set up some awesome new trips around the world.
Before we launch we're on the hunt for some intrepid explorers to visit and rate our volunteer projects, adventure hotspots, tourist attractions, tours, hotels and hostels across the globe.
If you're up to the task of flying out to foreign lands, and have the skills to interview project managers, tour operators, other travellers, and take on the travel-writing task of jotting down a daily blog, you could be in with the chance of becoming one of our interns.
You'll take photos, videos and stay in regular contact with the UK office, so you'll need to be outgoing, motivated and smart with proven writing skills.
In return we'll send you out on a free gap travel journey.
So what are you waiting for?
