Introducing our 2016 Senior Interns

Luxury Escapes has commenced a nationwide search for ten Senior Interns, who will undertake a week-long internship, from 29 October to 2 November 2018, at our headquarters in Melbourne. At the end of the week, a winner will be chosen by a panel of travel experts and flown to California and Cabo, Mexico for a luxury holiday ‘assignment’.

Senior Intern

This follows the success of our first Senior Internship in 2016, when we gave a couple a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to intern at Luxury Escapes and then put their skills into practise with a trip to Bali, all inspired by the Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway blockbuster film, The Intern.

“We are so impressed by Luxury Escapes’ commitment to our generation. Retirement is just the beginning for Australians, and we think it’s so important that retirees are exposed to the modern workforce. Luxury Escapes opened our eyes to just how much 9 to 5 jobs have changed,” said Jenny, our previous Senior Intern.

“Australians are expected to live almost ten years longer than they were 50 years ago, and the internship is a great way of proving that there are so many options for us to live our lives to the fullest,” Jenny continued. “Luxury Escapes HQ was a fantastic place to work, not to mention our incredible trip that let us put to the test all the skills we learnt during our internship.”

Senior Intern

Luxury Escapes’ Co-Founder and CEO, Adam Schwab, said the company was pleased to be expanding its Senior Intern Program in 2018 and simultaneously support this year’s Federal Budget, which announced a raft of measures to help older Australian employees with careers in the modern workforce.

“Seniors throughout Australia have the opportunity to apply to become the Luxury Escapes Senior Intern. We pride ourselves on offering our team a vibrant culture fostering inclusion, wellbeing and personal and professional development, and the program demonstrates to our interns how the workplace has changed over time. Our team will help them up-skill in social media and teach them how to create amazing content, among other fun activities like table tennis championships, in-house massages, unlimited Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, yoga and meditation classes.

“We plan to leverage our 2.6 million-strong member base which has made Luxury Escapes Australia’s fastest growing travel company. This generation is influencing the global travel ecosystem, and we recognise that by tapping into this generation, we are creating value and wisdom for our business”, said Schwab.

The ten interns will be given a wardrobe to equip them for their week at Luxury Escapes’ headquarters. They will be dressed by iconic Australian brands Akubra, Sportscraft and STM Bags: attire fitting for when the winner accepts a trip to California and Los Cabos in November.

The interns will live in Melbourne for five days and stay at the newest Luxury Escapes partner hotel, The Savoy Hotel on Little Collins, which reopens this month after a multi-million dollar refurbishment, as the latest hotel in the TFE Hotels Collection, a portfolio of beautiful discovery hotels each with a sense of story, place and purpose.
