Ad-hoc Foreign tour guides - (expats only please) (Dhaka)
Hi Foreign Expats of Dhaka
Please feel free to pass on to anyone suitable.
I am the founder of a new British social enterprise brand. I am based in London but often visit Bangladesh regularly - one of the key countries I work in.
I am seeking English speaking expats who'd be happy to be freelance lead tour guides (additional foreign language skills a bonus) for my foreign travellers seeking to visit Bangladesh.
From London, I help arrange group and individual tours of Bangladesh with local Bangladeshi tour guides. I am now seeking great, fun people who can help join them to lead the tours. My visitors are often visiting Bangladesh for the first time. So some hand holding and understanding of their culture is needed too.
If your application is successful, you would be added to my list of tour guide I call on when a booking comes in.
This role would suit any:
Person bored - who wants to break out and discover Bangladesh!
Stay at home parent who needs a break
Graduate or Students
Retired or working professionals with spare time keen to explore more of Bangladesh.
Anyone seeking extra income.
All ages welcome
Be fit and active
Be warm, sociable and love travel
Confidant to deal with groups
Be based in Bangladesh
Have a valid Visa/passport
Previous experience as tour guide not essential - but need to demonstrate passion for sustainable travel.
Demonstrate the ability to empathise and connect with everyday Bangladeshi folks and foreign travellers a must
Be prepared to authenticate your identity
Provide professional references
Have clear speaking voice with good written and spoken English.
Be available from 2 days to 16 days (but we will check your availability regularly).
Have access to computer and Skype - and have working knowledge of how to use Word, Excel and a scanner.
If you are also expats who are expat citizens and speakers of Spanish, French, Arabic, Japanese, Russian, German, Italian - feel free to get in touch.
I am not a traditional tour operator and run a social enterprise where via these trips I am helping people discover the real Bangladesh.
I am not seeking local Bangladeshi tour guides as I already have this arranged. Sorry!
If you think you have what it takes, or want to find out more, please contact me via direct message at InterNations. Please send your CV telling me why you want to explore Bangladesh plus a picture. Expect a Skype chat too for successful applicants. Also note this is a slow process. For me, it is all about finding the right people.
