We launched Secret Escapes (Evasions Secrètes) France in May 2016 and we've grown a huge amount since then. We went from a team of three people to a team of 40+ and we have lots of incredible offers live on our website every day. We're a super ambitious business and we want to get even bigger!

We're now ready to take this market to the next level and to do so, we want to inspire our French members with more and more exciting offers every week. We're looking for two amazing, fun and motivated translators to come and join us for three months at our headquarters in London and help us make this possible.

If you have a passion for languages and would love to start your career in travel, please read the job spec and get in touch!

We’re searching for an amazing Editorial and Translation Assistant, a native French speaker who is fluent in English and ideally (but not essentially) has a good understanding of either German, Spanish or Italian, to help us venture further into the French market. Not such a big ask, right? You will be based in our head office in Holborn, London and will be working alongside the French editorial team for 3 months. Training will take place between 14th-16th May and the work will start from the 17th of May. 

Being part of an amazing team, you will help produce our French language hotel copy. You will be translating mainly from copy which has been written by our copywriters but from time to time we might ask you to write copy too, making sure it’s in the right tone of voice for this particular territory.

Are you an experienced wordsmith with a passion for travel, languages, an eye for detail, impeccable grammar and a great sense of humour? Tick those boxes and we’re interested.

Main responsibilities

  • Manage elements of the uploading, editing and image selection process for each hotel selected for the site
  • Translate our hotel copy into French creating on-brand copy in accordance with our style guide
  • Liaise with the rest of the French team to ensure sales are on time and on brand
  • Promote each offer to ensure the copy and the images sell
  • Research and write sales for our website when necessary

This is a great opportunity for someone keen to start their career in the editorial and translation fields and help a fast growing business excel in a new market.

Things we’d look for:

So, along with sending us your CV and covering letter, we’d like you to work on a little translation task. If you’ve done a similar job in the past, don’t hesitate to also send us examples of what you were doing!

  • A translation into French of the following texts (please translate into French only the ones that apply to your language skills) - Please attached this tranlation to your application along with your C.V

The property has undergone several renovations since, and acquired some striking modern sculptures, but its glamour lives on – and there are even original neoclassical plasters in the foyer, en route to the ballroom.
