We launched Secret Escapes Netherlands in the summer of 2015 and we've grown a huge amount since then. We massively expanded our team since then and 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 the Dutch market to the next level and to do so, we want to inspire our Dutch members with more and more exciting offers every week. Therefor we're looking for six amazing, fun and motivated copywriters/translators who will also be trained to become editors, to come and join us for up to 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!

As Editorial and Translation Assistant in the BeNeLux Editorial Team you are assisting on writing copies and editing our content for the Benelux countries. You are writing copy, edit sales and you are co-responsible for quality checks and amends. We would need you to be allowed to work either freelance or on a temporary contract in the UK, and should be able to work full time for minimum 2 and possibly 3 or more months on a special growth project.

We’re searching for an amazing EditorWriter, a native Dutch speaker who is fluent in English and ideally (but not essentially) has also some understanding of either German, French, Spanish or Italian, to help us venture further into the Dutch market. Not such a big ask, right? You will be based in our office in London, and will be working alongside several other international editorial teams and in close alignment with the Dutch core editorial team (based in Berlin) for 2 to 3 months. If the project proves a success, we may extend the assignment.

Being part of an amazing team, you will help produce our Dutch 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

Modern design, glittering views and a bit of history at a luxury hotel next to Grand Central Terminal

Want your luxury city break to come with a view right into its city’s glittering past? Even as it boasts a modern market, lounge and Western European restaurant, plus rooms with touch-panel lighting over the desks, Grand Hyatt New York also transports you nearly a century back in time, to when the former Commodore Hotel’s dazzling lobby was known as the world’s most beautiful. 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.
