Careers at Oneworld Travel

We’re much more than an independent travel agency – we’re a family. As we continue to develop and grow, we’re often looking for individuals who want to develop and grow too – sharing the journey with us, and ultimately becoming an integral part of our family.

If you have experience in the industry, or you’re at the start of your career in travel, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch with your respective branch to speak to someone about recruitment.

More Details

We are looking for an enthusiastic and vibrant person to assist in creating bespoke travel packages and tailor-made itineraries in a fast-paced, customer service-oriented environment.

We’re an independent travel agency group with three branches, all located in the North of England. Our Wakefield store opened 16 years ago, achieving great success and prestige within the local community. We are ABTA members and hold our own ATOL license – this allows us the flexibility to dynamically package holidays for our clients, meaning we have a unique advantage over other high street travel outlets. We also offer a Bureau de Exchange service which carries a superb reputation of offering some of the best exchange rates on foreign currency in the local area.

  • Administration and office experience.
  • Experience working in a customer-service environment, with a confident and can-do attitude.

We specialise in bespoke long-haul packages – including destinations such as North America, the Far East and Australasia. Therefore we are looking for someone who will be confident in selling these destinations, with a good knowledge of airline routes, ticketing and code share agreements.

Working with us – You’ll be joining an existing, close-knit team, with plenty of opportunities to enjoy traveling alongside your colleagues on our company trips (recent destinations include Geneva and Malaga). You’ll also be afforded other travel opportunities for both professional and personal gain, and the flexibility and rewards that come with being a part of a small business.
