Rising demand drives Audley Travel recruitment

Tailor-made operator Audley Travel has launched a recruitment drive to handle rising levels of enquiries and bookings.

The company said organic traffic to its website in April was up 75%, compared to the same month in 2019.

Travel sales specialists are sought for its head office (pictured) in Witney, Oxfordshire, and its west London office, and applicants have the opportunity to apply for these roles as homeworkers.

Travel sales specialists design and sell personalised, tailor-made trips and require detailed knowledge of a destination.

New recruits will travel to an Audley destination when they join, in order to learn more about it.

Other roles available include sales operations specialists, concierge specialists and marketing and finance roles.

Mark Hotham, a travel sales specialist who has worked for Audley for 16 years, said he has recently returned from a fam trip to visit new beach properties along the southern coast of Cambodia, and to check out what has changed since the pandemic.

“It was an amazing trip and so good to see how Cambodia is bouncing back quickly,” he said.

“Being able to visit it so soon after it reopened has really helped me convey the reality on the ground to clients and, in my day-to-day job, to experience a trip as an Audley client does is invaluable.”

Other benefits include regular social events; the opportunity to win spaces on an incentive top-performer trip; free fresh fruit and smoothies; a weekly exercise class and access to an on-site gym in Witney.
