If you’ve ever dreamed of getting paid to travel (₱25,000/month) and create content to inspire others, this job might just be perfect for you. And yes, travel expenses are also paid for.

For those who don’t know us, The Travel Intern is a Singapore-based community of storytellers and explorers. Since 2016, we’ve been sharing our love for travelling through film, photos and words and continue to inspire travellers to travel better, smarter, and braver.

In fact, we have travelled on 184 trips to over 44 countries!

Now, we want to grow our community in the Philippines, and we want you to join us! (Opportunities to convert to full-time positions after the internship programme are available too)

Here’s a video of our Content Creator Bootcamp in the Philippines two years ago.
