City Travel Review attracts applicants each year to work within our study/working gap real-world type placement projects.

Project members are usually undergraduates, postgraduates, young working people taking a short sabbatical, or those taking a gap year or time off before or after College/University.

Project members come from all different backgrounds, with the following purpose to gain valuable diverse working experience to add to their CV/Resume or portfolio and to learn a language from scratch or improve on foreign language skills already acquired.

Many project members wish to gain a new real-world working experience, possibly changing career direction in order to move into:

  • creative,
  • history,
  • geography,
  • arts,
  • culture,
  • language,
  • tourism,
  • media,
  • communication,
  • PR,
  • journalism,
  • language,
  • editorial,
  • research,
  • travel writing,
  • reviewing,
  • design,
  • photography and
  • fashion industries

Project members are selected and usually placed in peer groups that have members of the team with complementary skills.

Project members attend language classes on a regular basis usually during the mornings and during the afternoons project members gain and develop hands-on experience working as Travel Researchers/Review Journalists within a project team.

Project members are thoroughly involved within the creative team, producing a professional online tourist guide aimed at young people and students visiting a capital city.

Information gained in language learning is incorporated within the guide. Project members design the whole guide, from start to finish from layout, photos, graphics/design, interviewing, researching, reporting, proofreading, writing reviews/features for restaurants, bars, cafes, attractions/entertainment, city history, art and culture etc. Project members attend workshops and are aided by an experienced journalist & professional working team.

During most afternoons they are out and about on project related visits within the city and surrounding areas. Typical project visits include visiting museums, walking tours, visiting local areas, tourist attractions, historical sites and the highlights of an amazing city.

We select outgoing individuals who are able to demonstrate commitment, initiative, teamwork, good organisation and the ability to communicate effectively.

We like to hear from those who love learning, want to acquire a new language and like to work within an interactive working team whilst absorbing the atmosphere in a foreign city in Europe.
