About Secret Escapes

We're looking for grafters and self-starters to join the gang, who can keep up with the pace and want to make a difference. We still work in relatively small teams, so there's no room for coasting along. We're friendly, happy, and most importantly, we work hard. We're not afraid to get our hands dirty and we're all madly passionate about our brand.

We’re a team of 18 HR peeps; twelve in London, three in Warsaw, two in Berlin. We work hard, get our stakeholders and have the full support of our two Co-Founders (one Co-Founder is very easy to spot in the office, he wears an animal themed jumpers on Friday).

Things you should know

 You may also put on a couple of pounds (woops!) when joining our team. We have a ‘snack desk’, dedicated to things we shouldn’t really be snacking on...Lola’s cup-cakes, chocolate, bread and Carr’s cheese melts, although there has been a recent trend towards salted caramel M&M’s (yes they do exist). You’ve been warned!
