I have been working at Audley Travel full-time (More than a year)
Clear progression opportunities for sales staff with training being offered to support you to move into management if you choose. For those who love sales there are other ways to progress your career where you can take on extra responsibilities within the team from such as training or mentoring a newer member of staff.
The earning potential is fantastic once you understand the role but realistically it takes 12- 18 months to really embed what you have learnt. The role is serviced focused but this is definitely a sales role where you are working to clear sales targets. The expectations are very transparent and you’re measured not just on your sales but also your service levels.
4 week initial FAM trip when you start. It’s a great opportunity but this is a work trip not a holiday. Some days can be pretty exhausting but its also a lot of fun. Secondary trips are offered every 12- 18 months depending on business needs/time of year.
Audley throw the best parties and they don’t cut corners.
The company listen to staff feedback. Its quite transparent with monthly Company meetings where you can ask questions to the whoever is leading the meeting which is either the CEO, CFO, MD or HR Director.
The benefits are constantly being reviewed. As of this month we now receive life insurance.
Very bright, modern offices with plenty of natural light all within close walking distance to tube and over ground stations.
The travel industry is cyclical which means your earnings go up and down with peak/non-peak periods.
Advice to Management
As the company continues to grow ensure changes are clearly communicated.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Audley Travel (London, England) in March 2016.
Initial phone screen with a recruiter followed by an online personality test. Face to face interview at London office with a head travel consultant from the specialist area and a member of HR. Lots of questions regarding sales experience and asked to do a written test writing a letter to accompany a brochure. Staff very friendly and helpful.
