Expert Africa is a market-leading, award-winning specialist tour operator, with a first-class reputation and an expanding business.

We are looking for an experienced East Africa specialist to join our small, friendly team, based in lovely offices near Richmond. They need to be organised, a conscientious team player, and have a demonstrable and enduring passion for Africa - preferably one that comes with some interest in its wildlife, ecology and cultures. A positive, flexible attitude to work and solid personal values of integrity and honesty are essential to any role in Expert Africa.

We focus on creating the best possible trip for our travellers – not merely selling them a holiday!

Who we’re looking for

If you have on the ground travel experience, and experience in selling East Africa (specifically Tanzania and Kenya), along with a love of Africa and an ingrained ethos of quality, then this may be just the opportunity you’re looking for.  

We can offer real scope to Africa-specialists with 4 or more years experience of working successfully in a specialist African travel role. Good knowledge of Tanzania and/or Kenya is essential, whilst competency on the Amadeus GDS system would be a bonus. A working knowledge of the web and SEO issues would be valuable.

We require all applicants to have the right to work permanently in the UK, and ideally look for those who hold a good Honours degree.

What the work involves

Initially your primary role will be working directly with our travellers. They’re often very well-informed and well-travelled, and you’ll be able to give them intelligent and personal advice. Attention to detail is vital as you work carefully to create great original trips for them, and put the arrangements in place to make these trips happen.

Within 6-9 months we’d expect the successful applicant to be able to take over the management of our Tanzania product and team – which is one of the company’s top three products.

There’s also a lot of scope or progression in many other aspects of our work if you have interest, ability and enthusiasm. This can include many aspects of marketing, including the production of our brochure, picture-editing, dealing with our press and PR, developing our website, running a consumer shows or organising events for clients or suppliers. This position would be a natural move up from a narrow ‘consultant’ role; scope for progression here is limited only by your own ability, experience and motivation.

You’ll join a friendly and co-operative team, in a relaxed and flexible working environment; ultimately we want you to work with a high degree of autonomy.

What we offer you

There’s a highly competitive remuneration package for the post; we try to pay at the top of the market for the right people. This includes 20 days holiday per year and, after you’ve been with us for two years, group private health insurance and a matched-contribution pension scheme.

We are looking for someone who is a real expert on East Africa. To support you in building this knowledge, you can typically look forward to four weeks of research travel in Africa every year. This is usually made up of two 2-week trips. Expert Africa funds this travel to ensure that our team members are amongst the most knowledgeable in the industry.

Starting salary: From £30,000, plus an annual bonus, depending on experience.
