Flight Centre First & Business is seeking Travel Consultants to join our growing teams across London including Bromley, Baker Street, Fulham, Wimbledon, HSK, Victoria and Watford. Joining our premium travel brand, the successful candidate will become a specialist in first and business airfares and luxury 5* accommodation in aspirational destinations across the globe.

Due to the nature of our business, you'll receive a lower level of enquiry from customers who require premium cabins and luxury product, giving you the time to truly understand the needs of your customers and deliver an exceptional level of service. There are no walk-ins, just over the phone enquiry, so you can deliver an incredible service and successfully build your portfolio of clients.

Furthermore, Flight Centre First & Business is the most profitable brand within the Flight Centre UK Group and has ambitious growth plans for the future, which means there's plenty of opportunity to increase your earning potential and rapidly progress your career.

All travel consultants receive uncapped commission, which has resulted in Flight Centre First and Business consultants being some of the highest earners in the industry with our top established travel consultants earning over £150,000 a year. This success is a result of building up a client base of regular customers by offering incredible customer service and designing outstanding trips. The average OTE for consultants in year one is £25,000-£30,000 with the year two OTE falling between £33,000 - £40,000. As the commission is uncapped, some of our consultants far exceed this average.

  • Uncapped commission structure and business ownership scheme

  • Industry renowned social events and excellent company culture
