Work Type:  Remote
Application Close Date:  1st of March 2024

Intrepid Travel was born in 1989 with the simple mission to create positive change through the joy of travel.

More than 34 years later, we’re proud to be a certified B Corp with more than 1000 small group trips in over 120 countries. After all these years, we’ve stayed true to our mission, ensuring our adventures are good for the places we go, good for the communities we visit and good for our travellers. That’s why we carbon offset all our trips and support local communities but we’re not stopping there. We want to be the best travel company not just in the world, but for the world.

The world needs more Intrepid people: 

 

It’s an exciting period in Intrepid’s history and telling our story is more important than ever.

Your role will be diverse and exciting, from building relationships with trade and business media to developing messaging for high profile speaking opportunities. You will drive advocacy, executive thought leadership, crisis communications and support our employer brand. In addition, you will manage internal communications – ensuring our teams are informed and connected with our mission and purpose – and help to enhance our employer brand as an employer of choice. This is a dynamic and hands-on role in a global business with significant growth potential.   

 

If you thrive in a fast paced, results-focused environment and have a passion for the Intrepid style of travel, we’d love to hear from you! 

 

This is a full-time permanent position.
