Our recruitment process can take anywhere from 3-6 weeks, but of course this depends on the complexity of interviews that are required for each role. For example, some of our technical roles have technical tests and coding interviews that can mean the process is slightly longer than others.
While our business and the wider travel industry have been heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, as access to effective vaccinations increases around the world and restrictions to movement are relaxed, travel is beginning to recover in many parts of the world. As we look to the future, we see a lot of anticipation and excitement for people to return to travel, whether it’s domestically or abroad and our mission remains to make it easier for everyone to do just that. While we acknowledge that the pandemic isn’t over and there are still areas and virus variants of concern, we are committed to helping the industry rebuild in a more mindful and inclusive way, to support our partners to continue growing together with us and to help all of our customers book the trips and experiences that are just right for them. To that end, we have tons of great opportunities for people to join our expanding team and help us deliver on that mission.
Due to the ongoing impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the majority of our interviews are being conducted via Zoom video conferencing. As government advice in each country begins to allow for offices to reopen, face-to-face interviews may return however this will be at the discretion of each candidate.
As we move into a more hybrid way of working, with our employees dividing their time between home and the workplace, we believe that our offices will continue to serve as an important place for colleagues to come together, innovate and collaborate face-to-face on a regular basis. We know from research with our employees that they still value and need time together in the office to connect and collaborate. As such, our aim is to create a flexible concept that we can continue to adapt to meet the evolving needs of our workforce.
We recommend you to discuss any questions you have about relocation in your initial conversation with the recruiter, as this is being handled on a case-by-case basis and may vary by the role you are applying for.
