Context's consortium of scholars and specialists is constantly growing—both in new cities and into new disciplines. Our docents, no matter what their field of expertise, are gifted educators and love to share their knowledge and passion with others. If you are an expert in one of our disciplines (archaeology, art history, cuisine, urban planning, history, environmental science, classics, among others) and live, or will be residing for at least six months, in one of our cities, feel free to send us your CV and let us know what kind of topics on which you can hold forth.
Context has a small, but dynamic management team located both in our Philadelphia-based home office and scattered about our various regions around the world. We are rarely (but sometimes) hiring staff both in and out of our offices. Positions in Context's management offer membership in a warm and supportive team, but also an independent, self-starting work environment. If you think you can recruit and train some of the smartest academics and specialist in the world, plus organize the on-the-ground logistics in challenging cultures, and on top of that, support our discerning and intelligent clients in planning their visits to any of these locations, by all means, let us know.

"My internship was an incredibly positive experience, and I enjoyed working with the team at Context. Sharpening my visual media skills was one of the greatest gifts I took away from this experience, as well as the thoughtful professional advice of my immediate supervisor." Claire T.- Intern at Context in 2009
"My internship was extremely informative and allowed me to practice my theoretical knowledge. Being specialized in international trade, it allowed me to touch on several fields at once, such as marketing but also accounting and project management. In addition, it taught me to be able to adapt to any situation. I thank all the team of Context for teaching me so much!" - Alexandre D. Intern at Context in 2010
