  • While our world is paused, the natural world continues unabated. We’re looking ahead to when we can feel the presence of wildlife once more, wherever that takes us next. And, we’re continuing to support our local partners, who rely on our visits to protect the vulnerable species and habitats we’re waiting to explore again. #believeintravel #ethicalcore

Since 1996 we have been dedicated to creating tailor-made trips for discerning travellers.

Through hard work, determination and a love of the extraordinary we have become market leaders in what we do.  We continue to grow by striving for excellence in all areas whilst remaining loyal to what really matters to us, authentic and immersive travel experiences.

At Audley there is always something going on and in 2016 alone we celebrated our 20 year ‘Audley-versary’, the launch of Europe for US clients, our newly structured and growing product team and more opportunities than ever for promotion and progression. We want our employees to love coming to work and our culture is as important to us now as it was back in 1996 when it was just Craig, John and a flight to Vietnam.

    I have been working at Audley Travel full-time

    Pros

    Fun work environment - people make Audley, live by the company's values, good earning potential through commission in sales positions, amazing travel perks, supportive environment, different progression opportunities.

    Cons

    Lack of diversity, imbalances in earning potential depending on your sales region, less competitive salary in middle management, one type fits all management style, snobbish attitude of some staff to anyone/thing deemed 'not very Audley'.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing through these very tough times. Maybe give some staff you are keen to keep some idea of what their future at Audley after the crisis might look like.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Audley Travel.

    Interview

    5 stages. Online application, video interview, personality test, phone interview & in person interview. Quite long winded, nerve wracking but that’s normal when you really do want a job with a specific company. Taught me a lot and a worthwhile process.
