Essentially, you'll become an expert in the travel industry.

  • Free and confidential financial advice from our in-house financial advisors
  • Free health consultations, discounted fitness sessions and gym memberships
  • Discounted physiotherapy, massage, reflexology, tax-free bikes and more…
  • Opportunity to take a three month sabbatical after five years

What's more, you'll be working alongside like-minded people who are career-minded, passionate about travel, and in complete control of their earning potential and career progression. If you have ambition, Flight Centre will offer you leadership opportunities including the opportunity to manage your own sales team or work in our overseas offices. This is why we've featured in the 'Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For' for 9 years.

To be considered for this role, you'll need the following:

  • Experience in a target-driven role
  • Experience of travelling on at least two continents outside of Europe
  • Strong academic record and business acumen (ideally an undergraduate degree)
  • Confidence to run travel consultations with your clients
