We are only as good as our people – it’s the brilliance of our team, as well as our network of local travel agents, who make TravelLocal special. With some big projects on the horizon, a period of rapid growth and lots of training and self development opportunities, it’s a really exciting time to join us.
Expect the spirit of a startup and a culture that encourages progression all in one of the most interesting industries in the world. We’re well aware that wanderlust draws many people to the travel industry, so we also give everyone an allowance to go out and explore the world. The only problem is knowing where to start…
A productive work environment isn’t one-size-fits-all. We have team members who love working from our offices in Bristol or Berlin five days a week, while others have a completely remote set up. Some of us have even been known to up sticks and work abroad for a few weeks. Our focus is on delivering incredible results for our travellers and local partners, wherever you are.
While TravelLocal goes from strength to strength, we work hard behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly. But we do have plenty of fun too! We’re a team that likes spending time together outside of work. From casual pub drinks, to trying new restaurants, to marine-themed Christmas parties with sea urchins, lobsters and glowing jellyfish… (Fancy dress is optional, we promise).
Bristol is one of our home offices, and it’s a very appropriate location – 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 (like our company). The 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.
Berlin, our other home office, needs no introduction. One of Europe’s great cities, it has a huge variety of things to do, to see, to eat and to experience. As Germany’s most global city it is a crossroads for the world. Excellent transport links mean you can get pretty much anywhere directly from the city without too much hassle, and when you live here you will see (and feel) yourself at the heart of Germany’s tech economy.
