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 the world’s largest travel B Corp with more than 1000 small group trips in over 100 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: 

 

Provide support and assistance in building all aspects of Intrepid trips in Sri Lanka in this exciting opportunity. This role is all about making sure our Global Tailor Made team gets the info they need on time! You'll be the go-to for sorting out daily inquiries and queues. It's all about quick replies and making sure everything runs like a well-oiled machine. This will include loading of suppliers, contracts, rates, testing data, and confirming accuracy. You will also provide administrative support to the managers in securing contracts, entering correct pricing and data, creating exciting itineraries, and following up on sales leads to ensure we are profitable. 

 

This is a full-time permanent position, operating out of our office in Colombo. To provide the best experience to our people, this role would operate mostly out of our office with some work-from-home days.   

 

A bit about you: 

 

  • Minimum 2 years’ experience working with destination management companies  

  • Able to design exciting itineraries, preferably relating to small group adventures  

  • Demonstrated knowledge of tourism/travel global sales trends  

  • Knowledge of preparing costings for tours 

  • Previous experience and ability to use a pricing/booking system  

  • Proven accuracy in data loading  

  • Good knowledge of Microsoft Office suite 

 

You will have the ability to create strong working relationships with internal and external clients and suppliers. You’ll be detail oriented with strong written and interpersonal skills. Most importantly you’ll align to Intrepid’s core values of integrity, innovation, fun, passion, growth and responsibility.
