Wildlife - Landscape - People

Responsible Travel is the world's leading marketing platform for tour operators and accommodation owners committed to responsible tourism with over 375 specialist operators and hundreds of accommodations worldwide. We only promote holidays that have been carefully pre-screened by us to ensure they meet our criteria for responsible tourism and members must provide visitors with a real connection with the people, the landscape, the culture and the environment. We call this helping them to 'travel like a local'.

Job vacancies in travel companies

Sorry, we don't currently have any job vacancies.
Please note: We are based in south-east England, in Brighton (we do not have offices elsewhere) and as we do not operate tours we do not employ guides, tour leaders, activity co-ordinators, trip organisers, or anybody outside the UK.


UK law requires employers to pay the National Minimum Wage for any kind of work, including work experience, internships or placement schemes.

At present we are only able to offer internships that are fully funded by a third party. We are sorry that we are unable to consider applications for internships where full funding is not already in place. We work mainly with Sussex university, who offer fully funded internships to their students, and would consider students from other fully funded internship programmes. Linked below are a sample of what we may be able to offer. The exact roles we are able to offer to fully funded interns will depend on our requirements at a particular time.

Internship applications:
Sorry, all current internship positions have been filled so we're not currently accepting applications for internships. (The only exception to this is the funded University of Sussex placements where advertised by the university.)

Work experience

We do offer up to 4 students a year the opportunity to gain work experience at our offices. This year we are already fully booked and are unable to offer any further placements in 2018. Work experience placements do get booked up very fast so if you are interested for 2019 do contact us as early as possible!

Those on work experience are under no contractual obligation to perform work or provide services and the primary aim is to give you the opportunity to shadow members of the various teams at Responsible Travel. We may come to informal arrangements with someone to carry out a specific task. You offer your time and effort for free. People on work experience do not qualify for the national minimum wage and placements are unpaid. Further details:-

  • There will be no specific hours of work and the opportunity is only open for one full week
  • There will be no outline duties that you are expected to perform
  • We will not rely on work experience placements to fulfil real jobs
  • Placements are one week in duration (we are a small team, from experience this is enough)

Work experience applications:
Sorry, all 2018 work experience positions have been filled. To apply for 2019 work experience for one week, please send a covering letter, your CV with details of your specific work interests and when you will be available to lyn@responsibletravel.com
