Want to work for Ride Expeditions?

We’re on the hunt for a handful of freelance tour leaders who share our love of travelling the world from the back of a motorbike. If you have an appetite for adventure, are curious by nature, driven & professional, you’re going to fit us like a glove!
 
 
Key Info:
   
 

Contract Type: Freelance

Start Date: July/August 2022.

Commitment: You must be available for a minimum of 2 months per year, for periods of 4-6 weeks at a time. We require you to be committed for at least 3 years.

Destinations: Global.

Money: This will be disclosed to those that reach the interview stage, but please do not apply if you expect motorcycle tour leading to be a high paying job.

   
 
Responsiblities:
   
 
  • Ensure tours are operated inline with Ride Expeditions high standards of quality, ethics and sustainability.
  • Care for the business as if it were your own.
  • Exceptional customer service – the guests come first, always.
  • While on tour, you are on-call 24/7. This is not a simple, 9-5 clock in clock off job.
  • Prepare all required equipment and paperwork for the tour.
  • Give pre-trip & daily morning briefings.
  • Management of other team members.
  • Monitor the safety checks of the motorcycles and support vehicles.
  • Revise the risk assessments on every trip and suggest amendments when necessary.
  • Review the accuracy of written itineraries, marketing material and tour manuals on every trip.
  • Maintain the medical kit.
  • Maintain an interest in wilderness medicine, beyond that of obtaining the required qualification.
  • Record all trip expenses.
  • Keep a daily diary of events and submit a tour report at the end of each tour.
  • And a few thousand other things.
   
 
Essential Requirements:
   
 
  • Flexibility. Tour & team scheduling is a big task for us and we rely on the flexibility of our team.
  • Willing to take part in a 5 week unpaid training programme and a 35 hour online course.
  • Young or young at heart, physically fit and full of beans. Our tours generally err on the side of adventure and a job on the Ride Expeditions support team is not an easy one.
  • Keen to get nipple deep in mud, sand and elbow grease.
  • Well travelled, preferably in far flung destinations. Sorry, but if you’ve never strayed outside of the UK, you’re unlikely to be considered. A Miami beach holiday doesn’t count.
  • Bike knowledge and basic mechanics.
  • Possess common sense & a sense of adventure in equal measure.
  • Naturally polite, kind and professional.
  • An excellent multitasker. There really is a lot to think about on tour, and remembering the finer details makes a big difference to a guests experience.
  • A real problem solver. Not only do you need to be good at solving issues when they arise, you need to enjoy it.
  • A leader that excels under pressure. When things don’t go as planned, how do you react… Do you panic and get flustered? Do you point the finger at the person responsible? Or do you take control in a calm & positive manner?
  • A real people person. You will be the face of Ride Expeditions while on tour. People must like you (or at the very least, not dislike you!).
  • Experience in a relevant role. We’re looking for outdoor leadership, management, customer service, travel…
  • Class A and B license held for a minimum of 3 years.
  • A competent and sensible rider both on and off-road.
  • A real team player.
   
 
Preferred:
   
 
  • Experience as a motorcycle tour leader gets first prize here.
  • Bilingual. French or Spanish is ideal. If you also speak Arabic, Hindi or Mongolian, you get a shiny gold star.
  • Extensive travel experience in the destinations in which we operate.
  • Photography / videography.
  • Confidence in front of the lens.
  • Extensive motorcycle / 4×4 mechanics.
  • Class C or C1 license.
