We offer over 5,000 diverse small-scale, niche travel holiday offerings, across 180 countries and every year over 10,000 people travel with us. In addition, we publish online travel guides covering the diverse range of countries, regions and activities offered on the site in a magazine-style format

Job Description:

Responsible Travel is looking for an experienced content writer to be based in our Brighton office. The writer’s main responsibilities will be:

In addition to this, the writer will be creating and editing content to support the wider business. Examples may include updating published travel guides, carrying out interviews with holiday companies and tourists, and creating campaign copy to use in our marketing and communications activities.
