Welcome to our eighth edition of Take Off in Travel.
In this magazine, you can read all about the incredible travel and tourism industry, from the range of roles available, to the different routes you can take to achieve your dream job. We have also included some handy tips on how to write an effective CV, what to highlight in your job interview and how to stand out from the crowd.
Jobs in travel offer so many amazing opportunities you’d struggle to find elsewhere. You could be on a cruise ship sailing to all corners of the globe, planning a customer’s dream holiday, pioneering new systems in travel tech and so much more.
We are delighted to continue our partnership with travel association ABTA, which is doing really important work to support and represent the industry and promote its range of careers.
And we are thrilled to be working once again with MSC Cruises, our headline sponsor for Take Off in Travel, which has some great initiatives in place to guide and nurture new talent entering the travel industry.
In addition to these two key partnerships, Take Off in Travel is also fortunate to have the support of many of the leading companies in the travel industry. In our Showcase section of the magazine, you can find out more about some of the biggest names in travel, what it is like to work for them, and how you can get in touch to learn more about opportunities for you.
I hope this magazine helps you navigate one of the most exciting and rewarding industries to work in, and find your own to embark on a long and fulfilling career.
