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:

  • Knowledge of regional trip operations and small group travel 

  • Experience in the tourism industry, in contracting/reservations, sourcing and supplier management  

  • Experience in travel-related systems and Microsoft Office suite including Excel  

  • Experience in working with a DMC and tourism suppliers, including cost negotiations is an advantage 

  • Understanding of how to create commercially viable sustainable, experience-rich travel experiences (SERT), from accommodation, transportation, activities and meal components  

 

Your organisational and negotiation skills will be essential assets as you contribute to our continued success. Moreover, possessing a solid understanding of local tourism in select East European countries will further enhance your ability to excel in this role.
