Did you know you can intern with us? Learn what it is like being an intern at JacTravel from 2 of our team members, Ross and Caitlin. Both are students on courses with a placement semester at Edinburgh Napier University.
Caitlin’s Experience as an Intern
Working at JacTravel is an invigorating and fulfilling experience. As one of the leading global travel wholesalers, JacTravel provides an exciting and dynamic work environment. The company’s commitment to excellence and innovation in the travel industry creates a sense of pride among employees.
My internship at JacTravel has given me endless opportunities for personal and professional growth, with a diverse and multicultural team that encourages collaboration and creativity.
The company’s emphasis on customer satisfaction ensures that each day brings new challenges and opportunities to make a positive impact on travellers’ experiences.
I have had a chance to designing unique travel itineraries, provide exceptional customer service. As a tourism student I wanted a platform to contribute to the ever-evolving world of travel and tourism and working at JacTravel is a perfect environment to do so.
The company’s supportive and inclusive culture promotes work-life balance and has encouraged me to thrive. The camaraderie and commitment within the team has given me a sense of belonging. Overall, working at JacTravel as a student is a huge opportunity and offers an exciting and rewarding journey for individuals passionate about the travel industry and dedicated to delivering exceptional experiences to customers worldwide.
Ross’ Experience as an Intern
I would definitively say the highlights of my placement would be the FAM trips. It was great to experience what we book for our clients! However, joining the team on a trip to experience working in the Palma de Mallorca office and attending the WebBeds summer party was an experience I will never forget!
I would recommend this placement to anybody with a creative mind and a drive to deliver experience. The job is very rewarding as you get to create unique tours and deliver these for clients from start to finish. It’s great knowing that we have delivered amazing memories for our clients!
JacTravel has plenty of opportunities to excel and learn. They also put a big emphasis on their employee’s mental health and wellbeing, which I think is very important within any business environment.
Already a Graduate?
If you already have a degree you can join us as a graduate like our Head of Tailormade, Lindsay Walden did on a summer placement. This was how she joined our team more than 20 years ago in 2002. She has now progressed through a variety of different roles which lead her to the position she is in today. Find out more about her journey with us on our Meet the Team page.
