So, why come and work for Travel Nation? Well, if you’d enjoy being part of a friendly, hard-working team who spend their days creating trips of a lifetime all over the world, then you’ve come to the right place.
We all play a part in creating memorable trips for our customers. We offer first-hand destination advice, plenty of ‘can-do’ suggestions and a seamless booking process, and we aim to make every trip feel like a trip of a lifetime.
Based in central Brighton, we’re 5 minutes from the train station and 15 minutes walk from the sea. Brighton is a magnetic destination with a flourishing arts scene plus plenty of live music and events. Our office is very close to the North Laine, which is home to boutiques and designer-makers and craft breweries. Brighton is well-known for its food scene, from Abyssinian to Argentinean with all things vegetarian and vegan catered for. We're also very close to 3 gyms and a swimming pool, and we have more local, independent coffee houses than you could visit in a month.
Our friendly teams all work in the same office so we can lunch and socialise together. Whether it’s celebratory drinks, supplier-sponsored nights out or our summer and Christmas shindigs – we love our city, and we like to socialise here.
As we're all based in one office, you’ll be able to chat with the product team face to face and even add your own input into product selection. You can also work with our marketing team to write about your trips for our blog.
Because we specialise in around the world trips, they are by nature varied. If you get a kick out of planning complex or bizarre flight itineraries and knowing you’re building a ‘trip of a lifetime’ - you’re in the right place.
Currently, our office is open Monday to Friday. Our basic holiday allowance is 25 days a year (plus bank holidays), which increases with long service.
We work to realistic sales targets, but we also believe in offering our sales team the security of a high basic salary. You’ll have 6-monthly pay reviews alongside all the coaching and training you need to develop.
We contribute to your workplace pension scheme, and beyond that, we’ve picked a fund that offers you maximum visibility and control of your investments. You can easily top up contributions or start new savings pots yourself, via an app. We also contribute more to your pension the longer you work for Travel Nation.
Beginning with your induction training, you’ll have regular opportunities to brush up on destinations and suppliers to keep current. We even hold occasional themed training evenings like our South Pacific event, complete with Pacific meal and a prize draw for a Fiji fam trip.
As people who appreciate travel as much as you do, we understand that from time to time you may want to take an extended trip. Once you’ve completed two years’ service, we’re open to you taking an (unpaid) sabbatical period. And after ten years’ service, we offer a four week paid sabbatical.
Every year we offer worldwide educational tours as an opportunity to discover a new destination or refresh your product knowledge. In 2018 alone, we sent our team members on educational trips to Australia, Nepal, Fiji, French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Thailand, New Zealand and more.
