Tourism Internships

Greatdays Travel Group Offer Exciting 6 or 12 month Internship Opportunities in Travel & Tourism – (Now Recruiting for March 2017 Interns)

How does the Intern benefit from the Internship?

With more and more students graduating, securing a good job seems to get tougher and tougher each year. A good grade in your final exam results is now no longer a guarantee to get you a great job in your chosen industry. Employers are increasingly looking for people with real work experience in their chosen industry, and certainly with some first-hand knowledge of the workplace.

Greatdays has put together an internship programme that can offer that first-hand knowledge and experience that employers are seeking.

This is not an apprenticeship or a temp to permanent position but a fixed period internship to gain practical experience in the travel industry. When completed this will show prospective employers you can understand, commit to and complete a commercial obligation in real life, and have that experience they are seeking.

Experience across the following areas is on offer:

  • Hands on development of “live” commercial products and services
  • Working as part of a team and also on your own initiative
  • Time management
  • Analysis and problem solving
  • Article, brochure and report writing
  • Insight into the way a business flows and functions
  • Communication skills
  • Product sourcing
  • Booking real tours
  • Specific travel sector experience
  • Personal performance feedback
  • An open door policy to the Directors to discuss your career
  • Assistance in developing and tailoring your CV
  •  Assistance in the development of professional networking
  • A written reference on completion of your internship

Key Skills Required:

  • A real passion for travel and tourism
  • Good level of spoken and written English
  • Computer Literate
  • A keen interest in travel and tourism
  • Able to work on own initiative
  • Good geographical knowledge of the UK or European destinations
