Want to change the world?

If you want to change the travel world, you’ve come to the right place. We are doing it every day. We are creating something new in the travel industry. We sell quirky and sometimes surprising learning holidays across the globe where you can go learn to cook, surf, make perfume, horse ride, take photographs to be proud of, paint, practice yoga, Pilates, detox and even fight like a gladiator (and much more).

No bones about it, we’re an entrepreneurial travel company with big ideas and all the adventures that brings. We’re also a real business, making real money, working with real guests and holiday partners. Conceived in 2006, we are out of the incubator. We are weaned and walking but we want to run. Fast. We have a big plan, we have big ideas. Opportunity knocks.

The General Manager Role

Which is why we’re looking for entrepreneurial candidates to help us run as fast as Usain Bolt. As an ambitious General manager you will drive sales, meet targets, motivate a team, build and manage relationships with customers, suppliers and distribution partners, manage and grow our product portfolio, strategise and help with our new system and web design projects.

We sell amazing holidays and that requires amazing people. People who are determined, curious, hands-on, thoughtful to a fault, sales obsessed and yet extremely practical. We are always busy and at times it will be a tough gig but for the right person, it will be worth every minute.

If, like us you are not interested in the usual corporate gibberish, we’ll give you a job that is as varied and mind expanding as our holidays. You’ll also get to test the new ones from time to time.


General Manager Key Responsibilities:

  • Delivering growth, which means hitting service and sales targets
  • Managing our varied product portfolio across our various distribution channels which includes acquiring new holidays that match our high standards and meet our client’s wildest holiday dreams
  • Managing and motivating a fresh and enthusiastic team ensuring they deliver on bold growth and exceptional service objectives
  • Building and managing relationships with distribution partners, holiday suppliers and guests
  • Managing the PPC and remarketing campaigns
  • Managing the business analytics to help drive growth and deliver conversions
  • Collaborating with marketing and PR to get our message out
  • Helping to shape and deliver new system and web redesign projects

Is this you? It looks like you if...

  • You have an unhealthy interest in travel
  • You have commercial drive and determination in spades
  • Achieving growth beyond expectations is why you come to work
  • You are a great negotiator with a nose for the right product
  • You’re confident, reassuring and charismatic, and have the ability to quickly build trust and rapport with people
  • You have experience in a business undergoing rapid growth
  • You have proven people management capabilities, with an emphasis on high-service, customer facing businesses
  • You are aching for the chance to have more responsibility
  • You are a doer as well as a thinker – quite simply, you get stuff done
  • You absolutely MUST be fluent in written and spoken English
  • You hate wearing suits

The practical stuff?

Location:

Light and airy office in Kentish Town, NW5 London right opposite the tube station
(it’s above a coffee shop, those freshly baked croissants and brewing coffee smells are so good on a Monday morning)

Start date: Come soon, we’re waiting…

The perks:
  • Hefty discounts on our holidays (some are even free)
  • The chance to travel
  • Almost too much responsibility
  • More than just a job
  • No suits
  • Tea, endless tea
  • Exceptionally friendly colleagues
