Starting in 2009 by developing several pioneering trekking itineraries in the Balkans, we now offer 500+ self guided walking holidays and cycling tours as well as a range of meticulously curated small group and privately guided tours, family and discovery trips. Having principal offices in London, Dublin and Sofia and 50+ field offices/representatives worldwide, we can serve our customers anywhere they go, providing 24/7 support.

  • You will be resolving trip issues effectively with minimum disruption to the customer
  • You will be quickly finding solutions to situations such as mistakes in the local supplier arrangements, accommodation closures and disruptions to travel schedules
  • You will be monitoring balance payments and making sure they are paid on time, and the amounts are correct
  • You will be preparing and sending pre-departure materials and travel documentation (including uploading them to our smartphone app) and making sure everything is properly organised and documented for the customer’s trip
  • You will be taking shifts on the emergency phone line for customers who are currently on a trip
  • You will be the first responders to post-trip customer feedback and communicate it to the Sales and Products teams so that we constantly improve our products and service
  • From time to time, you will be supporting our sales team by preparing and sending custom itineraries and travel documentation to customers
  • You will be building relationships with existing local suppliers to ensure we are their partner of choice


  • Experience in Operations in an adventure travel company, ideally specialised in self guided walking and cycling holidays, is highly desirable
  • Experience in fast paced reservations or operations roles where you have demonstrated your ability to understand customer needs and find solutions is mandatory
  • Understanding and sharing of our values related to Responsible Travel is mandatory
  • Experience with computer booking systems (ideally TourCMS), help desk and chat software (ideally Zendesk) is highly desirable
  • Experience with email-based customer service
  • Outstanding organizational skills and attention to detail
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, English must be native or of equivalent level
  • Excellent email and phone manner and technique
  • Ability to work under pressure while maintaining accuracy
  • Ability to work efficiently without supervision
  • Friendly attitude, personal integrity and high standards of customer service


  • Work from home
  • Flexible working time
  • Fixed base salary + bonus scheme
  • 25 days of paid annual leave + bank holidays, increasing by one day every year until year 5
  • Great discounts for you and your friends/family members on all Natural Adventure trips
  • Outstanding learning and development opportunities
  • Great multinational team and a rapidly growing company

The starting annual salary is £22,000-26,000, depending on your experience. As you become more experienced, you can expect a total annual income of £26,000-28,000, including the annual performance bonus.

Note: the above levels apply to UK-based employees; if you are located in another country, they will be adjusted based on Purchasing Power Parity (PPP). As the position is remote, you could be located anywhere in the world, but due to time differences, we would prefer candidates based in the GMT or CET time zone.
