Responsible Travel is the world's leading marketing platform for tour operators and accommodation owners committed to responsible tourism
with over 400 specialist operators and 1000s of accommodations worldwide. We only promote holidays that have been carefully pre-screened by us to ensure they meet our criteria for responsible tourism and members must provide visitors with a real connection with the people, the landscape, the culture and the environment. We call this helping them to 'travel like a local'.
We are based in south-east England and as we do not operate tours we do not employ guides, tour leaders, activity co-ordinators, trip organisers, or anybody outside the UK.
UK law requires employers to pay the National Minimum Wage for any kind of work, including work experience, internships or placement schemes.
At present we are only able to offer internships that are fully funded by a third party. We are sorry that we are unable to consider applications for internships where full funding is not already in place.
We work with Sussex and Warwick universities who offer fully funded internships to their students and would consider students from other fully funded internship programmes. Linked below are the internship job descriptions that we have with them to give you a sense of what we offer. The exact roles we are able to offer to fully funded interns will depend on our requirements at a particular time.
To apply, your covering letter, (to include confirmation you have access to full funding for the internship and with whom
) and CV should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org

We do offer 4 students a year the opportunity to volunteer at our offices. Volunteers are under no contractual obligation to perform work or provide services and the primary aim is to give students the opportunity to shadow members of the various teams at Responsible Travel. We may come to informal arrangements with someone to carry out a specific task. You offer your time and effort for free. Volunteers do not qualify for the national minimum wage. Unpaid volunteer placements details:-
- There will be no specific hours of work, but the opportunity is only open for one full week
- There will be no outline duties that a student is expected to perform
- We will not rely on individuals on volunteer placements to fulfil real jobs
- They are 1 week in duration (we are a small team, from experience this is enough)
