Freelance docents to lead intellectual walking tours, Amsterdam and Prague
Context Travel, a leading organization in travel for intellectually curious travelers, is looking to expand its docent pool in Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Prague (Czech Republic).
Context is a very different sort of travel company: We work with local scholars and experts to create theme-based "walking seminars" in many of the major cities worldwide. We got our start in Rome a decade ago, and today operate in more than 20 cities, working with over 300 docents, many of whom are university professors, graduate students, or independent researchers.
You can learn more about Context by reading our About Us or Management page or by taking a look at our programs in Amsterdam and Prague.
Work is on a flexible freelance basis to meet the varying needs of each docent's outside working demands. We look for scholars who are already based in Amsterdam or Prague or will be relocating to one of these cities for at least 6 months.
We are looking for experts in the fields of architecture, art history, and history - though other specialties are welcome to apply. Guiding experience is not a prerequisite, and is less important than a passion for your subject, willingness to share and a knack for storytelling.
