We’re an award-winning, Bristol-based travel company on an exciting journey. Our mission is to make the world a richer place to explore, by seeking out and celebrating special places to stay (and eat). We believe that business should be a force for good, enriching rather than exploiting communities, the environment, our employees and the lives of those who use us.  Being responsible is not only right, but great business too.

Our company is only as good as the people who work for it. We are always on the hunt for great people to help shape our future, to bring energy, ideas and determination, and to nurture and develop our special culture.

We need people for whom work is more than just ‘9 to 5’, who believe in making the world a better, more interesting and richly-experienced place and who have the drive to carve out a career doing just that here at Sawday’s. Is that you?

About the opportunity:

We’re looking for a resourceful and empathetic admin whizz with amazing customer service skills to support our French team and the wider Membership department.

Responsibilities include handling customer queries (on the phone and via email), uploading Special Places to our website, managing and supporting our French inspectors and collecting data for our Marketing team.
