Why work with us


We know that a crucial part of enjoying your job is the team – that sense of camaraderie, ambition and fun that the best teams capture. We are creating one of Bristol’s best companies to work for, with the spirit of a startup and a culture that supports growth, achievement and success – all in one of the most interesting and varied industries in the world.

Here you can get to know our team. See what makes them tick, the experiences that have fired their passion for travel and how they contribute to TravelLocal’s growth story.

Behind the scenes at TravelLocal

At TravelLocal HQ, you will find an office full of enthusiastic professionals who are all great at what they do.

Everyone here believes wholeheartedly in what the company does and the service it provides to both travellers and local travel agencies; we are all striving to make it grow into the best that it can be. Our industry is in a fast-paced and competitive market, so there are high expectations on our shoulders and we all work hard to achieve and exceed them.

That said, we also have fun! We have regular casual socials of pub drinks or delicious dinners, and how many marine themed Christmas parties have you been to fully equipped with sea urchins, lobsters and glowing jellyfish…?

There are lots of good things about working here – here are some highlights:

  • Flexible hours
  • A generous holiday allowance (33 days including bank holidays).
  • TravelLocal staff also receive £500 each year to spend on a TravelLocal holiday. This is increased to £1,000 every five years.
  • We are fast growing with the opportunity to progress quickly, take on responsibilities early, and shape the team and the company from the ground up.
  • Regular team socials including monthly nights out, an irregular film night and ad hoc groups to go to the climbing wall or canoeing on the Wye. Feel free to add something to that mix.
  • We are soon relocating to beautiful new offices where additional perks come into play! Located in the centre of town on the river, there’s cake on Wednesdays, a beer trolley on Fridays, foosball and table tennis, regular socials with other companies, a roof terrace and a lovely cafe / bar area which features its own happy hour.

 

Bristol – one of the UK’s best places to live and work

Bristol is our home, and it’s a very appropriate one – it’s a city that is a byword in the UK for independence, local community spirit and going against the grain in a creative, positive way. Our city is big enough to have great variety but small enough to be able to get around easily (if ever there was a cyclist’s city in Britain, then it’s Bristol). The restaurant and bar scene is full of independent businesses that we regularly support as a company and it’s also one of the UK’s biggest tech hubs, with a true entrepreneurial mindset. For ambitious high growth companies nowhere else compares.
