Travel is emotive, and we want those with the 4 P’s –
‘I started working at Emma Whiting Travel over 7 years ago, straight after completing my travel course. Since beginning in administration, I have been able to progress through a range of roles including consulting, training, office coordinator, marketing, and just recently I was promoted to Assistant Manager. None of this would have been possible without the amazing training and dedication to staff development that Emma Whiting Travel provides. I am so grateful to work for a company that really believes in continued learning and empowering their team members to reach their potential.’ – Mahalia Steve – Assistant Manager
‘I love working in a business with a real sense of community between our clients and our team. It’s so rewarding building relationships with clients and being a part of their travel journey through the years. Our strong sense of team makes for a happy work environment we all love coming in each morning.’ Chelsea – Travel Designer, 5 years
Yes, like other travel agencies we offer access to fantastic educationals, travel agent discounts, an uncapped salary, commission and incentives, a focus on learning and development, a great team environment with team initiatives and access to attend trade shows and exclusive supplier events.
We are focused on creating work life balance for our team, offering an extra week educational leave per year, designing and implementing the technology to work remotely, and constantly focus on innovative ideas to increase productivity and decrease stress.
We have a dedicated support team that underpins our day to day operations. This enables us to offer our clients similar benefits they receive from larger organisations whilst dealing with a personalised boutique business. Such benefits include, airfare and product support, after hours assistance, and marketing.
We can offer different employment models to meet the requirements of our team members, from full time employment to work from home contractors and other options in between.
As a business we believe it’s important to be socially responsible and pride ourselves in giving back to the people and places we visit, including supporting local organisations that share our values. Currently we support the Yatra Foundation, who provide disadvantaged children in India the opportunity to access education, Women For Women In Africa, who sponsor the empowerment and education of Kibera’s (Nairobi, Kenya) women and children, and the Victoria Women’s Trust, an independent advocate for women and girls who have been promoting true gender equality since 1985 through annual grants, targeted research, education, policy submissions, events and more.
Specialist areas – for those passionate about niche styles of travel or destinations, we target our marketing and help develop these areas to create new challenges and keep the passion alive.
Diverse clientele – we are travel designers not processors; we work with our clients to tailor make their itineraries and no two are the same. This makes the role exciting and doesn’t become boring.

Our research states that a lot of agents working from home enjoy the flexibility but miss the team environment, information sharing, access to products, incentives and travel perks, especially those working in larger organisations. Have a chat to us, we could have a solution for you.
