During the pandemic, OutThere created The #Experientialist, a feel-good-news ‘paper’ and newsletter that brings a cleverly curated selection of all that’s new and amazing about the wonderful world of luxury and experiential travel to our audience’s screens and inboxes. It proved so popular that it has now become a permanent and much-loved feature on www.OutThere.travel.
Your commissioning editor will be our Digital Experientialist, who will work with you to develop a monthly, themed calendar of stories. Our #Experientialist stories are wide-ranging, but we are looking for exclusive and unique angles, as well as diverse and inclusive perspectives.
Moreover, our stories are very much rooted in opinion, so you have to live by OutThere’s brand values of ‘diversity, discovery and discernment.’ Beyond the general reporting of luxury travel news, we want a distinct, OutThere point of view to come through in the articles and interviews, to drive maximum engagement with our audience.
What we are not looking for is press-release regurgitation. We are looking for a writer who is able to take a news story and turn it into something sensational and exclusive, find a unique viewpoint and go deeper into the story to ensure that it is different to those told by other media who may be reporting on the same subject.
Thus, we are looking for a candidate that truly understands OutThere’s place in the industry and our audience’s needs and wants.
Candidates, please note that this is predominantly a desk-based writing role. As an extension of the OutThere team, there may invariably be other opportunities to write for us that do involve travel and hotel reviews.
A strong luxury PR network and a finger on the pulse of the latest goings-on in luxury and experiential travel is a trait that we’d look for, but it is the quality of the writing and your perspective that we are most interested in.
Diversity and inclusion are at the very heart of the OutThere brand. Please read our diversity statement for more information.
