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.

You will get the opportunity to develop strong relationships with suppliers and local operators and work closely with other departments to ensure customers have the best experience!  

 

This is a full-time position, operating from Zagreb or our future Greece office, we work flexibly so some days you can work from home. 

 

Some of the experience you’ll bring will include: 

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

  • Destination knowledge and suppliers contacts 

  • Knowledge of East Europe regional trip operations with strong focus on Greece, preferably of small group adventures 

  • Experience in cost negotiation is an advantage  

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

  • Experience with Microsoft Office suite including Excel  

  • Ability to undertake trip pricing
