Dream Job: Woods Canada Explorer
Job Description: Canadian outdoor gear and apparel company Woods Canada is looking to hire a team of two to travel across Canada via the Trans Canada Trail (TCT), stopping at key points of interest, representing the brand and sharing experiences through regular photo, video, and written updates. In short, have a great time in the Canadian wild and encourage others to do the same.
Requirements: Ideal applicants will have extensive outdoor knowledge and experience, be an avid social media user and content creator, and will be able to work with a team and act as a personable brand ambassador. Photography and video skills, media training, and bilingualism are all pluses.
Compensation: You ready for this? Woods is kicking down $20,000 Canadian for the five month contract, with a potential $2,000 bonus at the end of the term. They will also provide the gear, cover travel and hotels/lodging expenses, and provide a $300/week per diem (for you Latin nerds, that’s a “per septimana”).
How to Apply: Head over to the online application and submit a video and a resume (photos are optional). Duos can submit videos together or individually.
