Luxury Escapes has announced the “Senior Internship”, an opportunity for someone over 60 who loves to travel. But unfortunately, even if you’re old enough, there’s another catch to the dream internship – the senior must be from Australia or New Zealand. Whoever is chosen will be trained in social media, blogging, vlogging and hotel reviewing before heading off on their amazing trip.

The travel component will include ten days of luxury at three Bali resorts chosen by the company, including meals, spa treatments, poolside cocktails and day excursions, according to the website. The company is hoping that with the senior internship, they can learn more about seniors’ preferences when booking trips online, reports the Gold Coast Bulletin.

Seniors can apply or nominate someone before 10 May on the internship’s website.
