Tech start-up SafetyWing is looking for an employee to travel the world and review the best co-working spaces – all while getting to enjoy their own custom-made itinerary of locations across the 10 countries of their choosing.

Travel and medical insurance will be provided, plus a tidy sum of £16,800 to cover travel costs.

There’s just one slight catch – you need to be quick, with applications closing tomorrow (29 July).

But it seems like a no-brainer, with research from SafetyWing finding that 30% of office-based workers in the UK say the cost-of-living crisis has made them consider remote working.

The same study found that digital nomads are five times more likely than office workers to earn between £75,000 and £100,000 – perfect for spending on tourist hotspots on the trip.

But if you aren’t quite that financially comfortable just yet, don’t worry – the company is offering up to £16,800 ($20,000 USD) to cover travel costs, plus compensation for the duration of the three-month trip.

SafetyWing, which provides travel and medical insurance to digital nomads and remote workers, found that when looking for dream remote working destinations, digital workers ranked safety, cost of living and remote working environments as their top three considerations.

To help find the best co-working spots across the globe, the company’s new Nomadic Content Explorer will test out and rank the different places to help fellow adventurers.

The successful candidate will write a blog, create a vlog, an Instagram reel and share photos that will be published across SafetyWing’s social channels – making it a perfect gig for budding travel influencers.

The hire will be covered under SafetyWing’s Nomad Insurance, which is the first travel and medical insurance specifically tailored to the needs of the nomad with coverage in 185+ countries.

The company will also offer compensation for content creation in addition to the travel budget.

Sondre Rasch, CEO and co-founder of SafetyWing, said: “We’ve only seen the beginning of the remote work revolution. At SafetyWing we’re working to create a global social safety net but we also want to supply remotes and nomads with all they need to know to get the most out of the opportunities remote work provides.

“Our Nomadic Content Explorer will be hugely important in helping us to provide our customers with up-to-the-minute information on where in the world has the highest-quality co-working spaces – so that when they’re planning their next Nomadic adventure, they can be sure that where they’re headed has the right infrastructure in place to help them do their best work.”

Applications are open until Friday 29 July on the SafetyWing website and the final decision will be made by 26 August.
