University students, are you looking for part time work?

When you are at uni, it can be super hard to make ends meet, especially in places like Sydney and Melbourne where rent is high. Having a little bit of part time cash can make the difference between two minute noodles on toast and actually having something decent to eat for dinner, sometimes study and work timetables don’t marry in harmony and it can be really hard to focus on your studies when you don’t know if you can afford to pay the bills.

This is why we’re encouraging uni students to become tour guides on eXpertLocal.

Running tours for eXpertLocal isn’t like having a standard part time job. It’s really up to you as to what kind of tours you want to conduct. If you love live music, you can share this passion with other people and take them on tours to your favourite gigs. If you are a fitness fanatic, you can show others your favourite running trails, bicycle lanes or even set up exercise programmes in the park. It’s about what YOU know and like to do, and inviting others to join you.

You do need to put in a little more effort than simply turn up to work, however you also get a lot more benefits than you would with the average casual work arrangement.

Here’s how:

  • You set the date, time and duration for the tours so it only ever based on your timetable
  • You choose the activities, so you never get stuck doing stuff you don’t want to do
  • You set the price point, so you know how much you are going to earn
  • You’re always in control. You can choose to accept or decline who participates in your tours
  • We help you market the tours through our network
  • We give you advice and support every step of the way
  • We supply the payment gateway so you don’t have to worry

So what do you need to do?

  • Think of a tour or experience idea you think other people would like to participate in
  • Post it on eXpertLocal
  • Promote it through your network
  • Accept (or decline) the bookings
  • Conduct the tour

Stuck for a tour idea?

We already know from talking to potential customers and uni students during our research that people would LOVE to go on the following student run tours:

  • Get to know Sydney- first year students from regional Australia, other states and international students would love to have another student show them around Sydney and to get to know the city with people like them.
  • Bi-lingual tours- it’s hard when you have to learn English, plus a new city, plus a new culture. So if you know a second language, we have a lot of overseas students, travellers and ex-pats that would love to have you show them around.
  • Sydney on a budget- most students don’t have much in the way of disposable income, so having someone who gets that money can be tight showing everything from how to stay entertained to fed on a budget would be greatly appreciated.
  • Special interest tours- we’ve had a warm reception to the idea of running Sydney live music tours, foodie gatherings, walking tours, and cool ideas like exploring a suburbs graffiti or meeting up for yoga or guitar in the park.

We have the audience- we just need the tour guides. So what are you waiting for? Get in contact via or create your own experience today!
