Hipcamp, the world’s largest provider of outdoor stays, is coming to the UK and is looking for a star candidate for its Best UK Summer Job position, and anyone can apply. Read on to find out more.
The company, which counts celebrity Jay Z as an investor, is on the hunt for a Brit with a passion for exploring the great outdoors to camp and glamp the length and breadth of the country, discovering, reviewing and sharing some of Hipcamp’s most unique and beautiful UK stays.
The winning candidate will receive a summer salary of £15,000, a daily stipend, as well as complimentary stays at 15 of Hipcamp’s best camping and glamping sites for the duration of the 30-day journey.
Hipcamp CEO Alyssa Ravasio says: “It’s no secret that since the pandemic, more Brits than ever are choosing to holiday at home rather than travel abroad.
