Helping you find a career in travel & tourism
Travel and tourism is a big business - the UK alone welcomes over 36 million visitors every year and is the 8th biggest tourist destination in the world. The sector generates a lot of income and has a huge range of opportunities for an exciting career.
To support all of these tourists the industry relies on hotels, attractions, and even restaurants to ensure that the UK continues to be a competitive tourist destination. Within these areas there is an abundance of seasonal and part-time work that can be very lively, enjoyable and well-suited to those who have good customer service skills.
You can choose work within international tourism, which is a popular job choice as it allows you to travel across the world in the name of work. These roles tend to be highly competitive and you may have to work your way up to a position with regular international travel perks.
There are a number of travel and tourism companies in the UK and most offer roles in marketing, finance, HR, and advertising. These companies usually have customer service roles too which involve advising people on holidays and even booking them on their behalf. If you get a kick out of organising and planning and are enthusiastic about travelling, a career as a travel agent could be for you.
