Much Better Adventures

Much Better Adventures

London, UK
Posted on Thursday, May 16, 2024

We're on a mission to inspire people to live a more adventure-rich life, help a global community of local businesses to make a great living doing what they love, and protect the world's wild places, one adventure at a time.

Our multi-award winning adventures are continually rated 5* by our tribe of loyal customers, we’re backed by some of Europe’s leading investors and entrepreneurs, and part-community owned. We won ‘Best for Experiences 2022’ at the Travolution Awards, and are proud to be B-Corp Certified.

So if you get a kick out of supporting independent businesses around the world, and are in your element trekking, cycling, climbing mountains, kayaking or something equally exciting, you are in the right place.

The Role

We’re on the lookout for additional outstanding adventurers for our Adventure Expansion team to find and curate new adventures around the globe.

We’re after people who can apply their adventurous spirit to seeking out unique and appealing itineraries, and to find and partner with the best local hosts in the game. You’ll be responsible for the start-to-finish creation of new adventures; from researching new destinations, negotiating terms and pricing, to writing copy and sourcing content - all with the aim of ultimately creating top-selling trips.

We are keen to hear from all those who have a passion for outdoor adventure and some experience in the activities we offer. We would particularly like to hear from those who love cycling and have some experience working on, or taking part in, multi-day cycling trips.

You should feel comfortable turning your hand to product development in a range of continents and countries: there is no required regional knowledge as we continue to grow globally. You will have clear ideas on what makes a trip commercially successful, what is a great customer experience and also excel at making it visually appealing.

You will spend the majority of your time designing new trips and some time optimising our existing product range.

Your role will involve (but not be restricted to):

  • Building networks and conducting online research to unearth the most amazing experiences, operated by awesome local hosts.
  • Being responsible for directly contacting potential partners, building relationships, making quality and safety assessment decisions, and negotiating pricing and contractual agreements.
  • Having a clear vision of what makes for a successful ‘Much Better Adventures’ trip based on a combination of your own knowledge of adventure travel and a deep understanding of what resonates with our community.
  • Thinking creatively about what makes a great travel experience and working with the local host to curate these new product collections.
  • Reviewing product performances, identifying market trends and consumer behaviour.
  • Thinking smart, systematically and in a data driven way about how to expand our global offering.

Each day you’ll be…

  • Researching new hosts to find those that perfectly fit the MBA mission.
  • Building relationships with new hosts (and growing relationships with existing hosts), negotiating pricing and contracting.
  • Developing new itineraries that are unique, inspiring and commercially viable.
  • Building trips online, sourcing media and writing trip pages which our Content team can bring to life.
  • Working on low-performing products to increase sales.
  • Proactively contributing to product growth strategy and direction.

To note - this is a desk-based role, there is no expected travel associated with it currently.
