An opportunity awaits for an innovative, exciting individual recognised for dynamism and creativity to take our thriving educational and sports travel brand to the digital marketplace.  With a talent and passion for all mainstream social media accounts, the candidate will merge our aspirational travel destinations and events with the fast-moving world of digital media, focusing equally on both our existing client bases and sport, ski and school study marketplaces.

Reporting to and working alongside the managing director, this full time role combines an attractive salary with an uncapped commission and bonus potential with a high degree of autonomy on offer for bringing business development ideas to fruition.  Personal characteristics required of each candidate include a vibrant personality, passion for the sports, ski, education and travel industries with a thirst for exploring the globe to promote our core travel destinations. 


We’re seeking a commercially astute, hands-on, experienced tour operator to creatively deliver our worldwide portfolio of ski, sport, supporters and study travel packages to exceptionally high standards.  He/she will have a confident grasp of reservation and booking systems and a thirst for exploring operational innovations and efficiencies.  Confidence in verbal and face to face client communications is a given, whilst a passion for developing new business projects through feasibility studies will stand an applicant out.  

He/she will also possess competence in all areas of operations’ financial requirements, negotiation, a desire and ambition to travel, a demonstrated drive to #delivertheunexpected and seamlessly form part of a dynamic travel team.  


  • High attention to detail
  • Commercial acumen
