Work with us

Do you have a passion for travel and want to share that passion with others? Start your career in the travel industry by working for Oyster Worldwide.

As a company with a reputation for being highly customer focused and for providing first class support to our participants, our numbers are growing rapidly. We are always on the look out for exceptional candidates to join our small team. We keep all strong CVs that we receive on file. If you think you have what it takes, email Jon Arnold ([email protected]) your up to date CV. When vacancies arise, we will review all suitable CVs.

Most of our job opportunities are based at our head office in rural East Sussex, UK. We may occasionally post vacancies for staff to work as a representative in one of our destinations overseas.

As a part of a small UK based team, whatever your job role, you’ll get exposure to all aspects of how a small business operates. This is extremely rewarding and gives everyone the opportunity to manage the whole process, from marketing a project, recruiting participants, briefing them, right through to the end of their time overseas with follow-up.

Not many organisations can offer the daily variety that we provide at Oyster!
