Company Updates

  • 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

  • As much as travel can affect us, it can make all the difference to people living in many of our destinations. When we’re free to explore again, they’ll depend on our support more than ever to help secure their future. And, when that time comes — and we’re certain it will — we know that the people and communities we’ve grown to love will be ready with arms open. #audleylife #passionfortravel #community #ethicaltravel #audleycareers

Audley Travel – Why Work With Us?


Your next career journey starts here

Our ethos

Our ethos is to give our clients exceptional customer service and a trip that surpasses their expectations. As a result, they return to us year after year and recommend us, too.

That’s why our people are crucial. We rely on outstanding employees who are committed to providing excellent service.

We’re firm believers that the more our people keep their spirit and individuality, the more fulfilled they are and the better they work.

That doesn’t mean we work chaotically. Each role is creative, varied and challenging, and we’re business-like and thoroughly focused. The trips we plan in every detail for our clients mirror our responsible but enjoyable approach.

We care about getting results, we work hard and we pride ourselves on being the best in the business. But we know how to have a good time together, too.

What's it like to work at Audley?

We know how to have fun when we are not working hard! Our open-plan Boston office is situated in the trendy North End district near to the Boston Garden and New England Aquarium. There are views over the river to Cambridge and the modern financial district and some great eateries nearby.

Our location promotes activity!  From having our own on-site gym, subsidized spin classes to onsite yoga and circuit classes there is never a lack of things to get involved in.   If ping-pong is more up your street then grab a paddle for a lunchtime game, or you can chill out by the TV on the sofas in our snug rooms.  

In addition to daily events, hard work is rewarded here - Employees are given the opportunity to win spaces on our half yearly incentive top performer trips with locations such as Miami and Venice, Italy.  We make sure that there is plenty of opportunity to enjoy your colleagues by hosting Trivia nights, pool tournaments and company parties in venues like The City Winery and cruises around Boston Harbor.

 

At Audley Travel, we have hand-picked our benefits to best fit our employees’ needs and many have been introduced as a result of feedback from annual engagement surveys. We constantly strive to improve our benefits and make Audley the best place to work.

Our programs include:

  • 100% company paid Health and Dental insurance
  • 20 days PTO + your Birthday off starting in 2018!
  • 401k employer match, 50 cents to the dollar up to 6% of your base pay
  • Free bagel and yoga Fridays
  • Weekly happy hours
  • Audley partnership scheme

In addition due to employee feedback we have recently reduced our working hours from 40 hours to 37 hours per week!
