About the role
Calling all creative high fliers and adventure die-hards. Multi award-winning travel startup Flash Pack is looking for an exceptional candidate to fill a once-in-a-lifetime job. We hear a lot about amazing jobs these days but trust us when we say that this unique role is the stuff that wanderlust dreams are made on. This rare opportunity is all about crafting adventures. We want someone with the vision and scope to conjure up world-class escapades all over the globe.
In this pivotal role, you’ll be hunting down all the very best, most original experiences to shape into cutting-edge escapes that get people talking. This position involves a fair amount of travel: you’ll be meeting with suppliers, agents and key contacts in destinations across the world. It also requires real tenacity and commercial nous. We want someone who can spot an emerging travel trend at a hundred yards, and know how to convert that into a profitable and scalable trip.
Flash Pack has enjoyed meteoric 400% YoY growth since launching in 2014, and we want someone who can supersize that curve, mobilising our success signature – adventure. We’re not so worried about industry experience: instead we’re searching for individuals who have the grit, flair and ambition to create incredible products that stand head and shoulders above the competition. You might be a travel-loving investment banker looking for a change in direction, a small business owner who wants in on a bigger story, or a travel journalist with some commercial experience.
