Why work for Inntravel


A great place to work

You’ve just got to look at the number of people who have worked for Inntravel for ten years or more – 28 at the last count – to see that we must be doing something right.
Here are just some of the reasons why people tend to stick around:
• The friendly, down-to-earth atmosphere in the office

• The opportunities for travel (we like as many members of staff as possible to experience Inntravel holidays and destinations, so organise regular ‘fam’ (familiarisation) trips)

• Being based in the country (nothing beats a bit of fresh air for clearing the mind at lunchtime; we even have a welly cupboard for muddy days)

• The satisfaction of helping to plan people’s holidays (if we’re ever having a bad day – and it does happen occasionally! – we only have to read a few customer reviews to remind ourselves why we’re in the travel business)

• The variety (you never quite know what each day is going to throw at you. Be it bad (rail strikes, flight cancellations) or good (arranging someone’s honeymoon, winning an award), work at Inntravel is rarely boring)

 • The strong values (we take great pride in our holidays, and the things we believe in – fairness, expertise, openness, and not being afraid to be different – are reflected as strongly in the office culture as in our dealings with customers and suppliers)

• The chance to make a real contribution to a growing, dynamic business (we’re still small enough that you can see the difference you make to the company, rather than feeling like a small cog in a big machine)

• The social life (rarely a month goes by without a round-robin email inviting everyone along to some gathering or other, plus everyone’s welcome to join the croquet, yoga, fitness and crafting clubs which run at lunchtime)

On top of that, you get bank holidays and 20 days’ paid leave, with extra days accrued for long service (those who have clocked up ten years get 25 days). There’s also a generous company pension and group life insurance cover, and, as you’d expect, discounts on Inntravel holidays and holidays offered by sister companies, including Inghams and Explore.
