Established in Edinburgh in 2004, Absolute Escapes is an award-winning specialist in self-guided walking holidays and tailor-made travel in the UK & Ireland.
Our first-hand knowledge and meticulous attention to detail is key to exceeding the expectations of our clients from around the world. By listening carefully to our clients’ requirements and planning fabulous itineraries where the logistics work, we allow people to hold onto their spirit of adventure – no matter how busy their lives have become.
We’re never so lost in logistics that we forget that our holidays allow people to spend precious time reconnecting with nature, with each other, and rejuvenating. Each holiday we book is as individual as the person it is created for.
As part of our continued growth plans, we are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and professional individual who is passionate about travel and the outdoors to join our team as a Travel Specialist. This position is for a 6 month period and would suit a recent graduate looking to gain some experience in an exciting and fast-paced industry. There is the possibility that this will develop into a permanent position.
The role will play an integral part in delivering all aspects of the walking holidays and tailor-made tours that we provide for our UK and international clients. You will be highly organised with excellent attention to detail and people skills as you will be working with a wide range of partners and suppliers in the tourism industry.
You will be involved in every aspect of the business and will assist in exceeding our customers’ expectations and in the future success of Absolute Escapes.
This role would suit someone with a keen interest in travel and the outdoors, as well as a good knowledge of the UK as a tourism destination, and who is looking to develop a career in the industry.
While this is an office-based role, there is the opportunity to combine this with home working for 40% of your working hours. Absolute Escapes office is located in the heart of Edinburgh’s beautiful Old Town at Dovecot Studios, 10 Infirmary Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1LT.
The closing date for applications is the 28th January 2022, and we expect the successful candidate to start in February.
