Dream Internship: Become Part Of The Hostelworld Social & Content Team!

We’re looking for a German speaking intern to join our Social Media & Content team. Check out all the infos! 👇

About Hostelworld

We are an incredibly fun, but hard working international Social Media & Content team based in Hostelworld’s London office, in Holborn. We manage Hostelworld’s social media channels (covering France, Italy, Germany, Brazil, UK, US, Australia and the Spanish speaking markets) and we produce compelling and engaging content for our website, emails, blogs and, of course, our social feeds.

We are on a mission to show the world what the modern hostel looks like, inspire 18-35 year olds to #MeetTheWorld and celebrate the unique experiences that staying in a hostel gives you. Our customers aren’t your average tourists: they’re an open-minded, spontaneous and energetic bunch who want to immerse themselves in unknown cultures, not just observe them. And it’s the other global travellers they meet along the way that make all of this possible.

We have a roof terrace, monthly drinks, yoga, free fruit, monthly food events and creative challenges! We have international teams spanning SEO, Acquisition, Brand, Design, HR and IT, so lunchtimes are super social with lots of communal cooking and eating!

Over the past two years, our marketing team have re-branded Hostelworld and launched innovative and daring content and brand campaigns with celebrities including Fifty Cent and also with brands like ASOS and Resident Advisor. In addition, we have built up an incredibly engaged social following and have big plans for the Hostelworld blog.

    Dear Hostelworld-Team,

    I would love to do an internship (Social Media & Content) at your company. I’m currently studying Journalism and Public Realations in Cologne, Germany. I have to do an internship in 2018 and I was wondering if it’s possible to apply for that now? I really believe that this would be the perfect job for me, because I’m very passionate about writing and traveling. I would love to hear back from you!

    Thank you so much,

    Hannah Ackermann

      Hi Hannah,

      I just wanted to let you know that we are looking for a German speaking intern again 🙂 If you are still interested, application will be open until March 19.
      Hope to see yours <3 ^Ray

  2. Hi, The internship in the social media & content team is starting from May 2017. Will there be another one after this 6 months period? So, I mean, beginning with October or November?
    Because I would be very interested! But I have my bachelor exams in September 2017. But first I have to finish the 6th semester, which lasts until July 2017.
    I hope there will be another possibility! 🙂
    Kind regards, Veronika Gradwohl

      Hi Veronika,
      That would be our dream, yes 🙂 We hope to keep this programme running! Please keep an eye open on our Facebook and Linkedin page 🙂

  3. Helloe travel fanatics,

    this looks like the ideal job for me. I love travelling and staying at hostels around the world. Whenever I walk in a hostel, I’ve immediately got a whole bunch of new friends for the time being there.

    I’m studying international management with tourism and i have my own travel blog located at http://www.yellowtravelbird.com

    Unfortunately I’m only in second semester so graduation is still a bit away but if you happen to need a german speaking intern again next year or in two, I’m your girl!

    Best wishes
    Laura Müller

  4. Are you offering these internships more frequently? I wanted to ask if there’s going to be a chance for another internship starting around March 2018. I’d be glad if you could respond to this.
    Thank you

  7. Hello there, this internship sounds like the dream! Unfortunately I am still at the beginning of my studies in Tourism Management, but I already now that I have an internship free of choice included in my studies which will be in the beginning of 2020. So I really hope you will offer something similar then! Would be amazing. Just a general question: Would my studies in Tourism Management be eligible for this kind of position! Thank you 🙂

  8. Hey I‘m not studying at the moment, is there a chance for me to apply? I‘m a flight attendant and this offer sounds like a dream, I do Social Media pages for friends, not quite a big business but I guess I‘m really good at it.. I just wanted to know if there‘s a chance for someone who isn‘t studying 🙂
    Thank you!
    Have a nice day!

    • Rayhana El-Mahgary Antworten

      Hi Sonia,
      Yes, of course you can apply even if you’re not studying. 🙂 All we care about is a creative mind, the passion for the industry and that you’re eager to learn 🙂 Simply show us with your instgram/ Snapchat story who you are and why you’re perfect for the position! ^Ray from Hostelworld
