    This September, National Rail is calling for aspiring adventurers to apply for Britain’s ultimate part-time job. Key qualities for the dream job include an adventurous spirit, a natural curiosity for new places and the desire to share travel experiences with the world.

    The role of Chief Adventure Officer (CAO) will see one lucky traveller vlogging their way around Great Britain on paid-for trips to destinations of their choice – and paid £10,000 for the privilege. 

    From getting lost in the world-famous Hampton Court Maze, trampolining in Snowdonia or surfing along the Jurassic Coast, budding explorers will have the opportunity to tour Great Britain in search of adventure.
