Working in the travel and tourism industry can be great fun – but many people still don’t think about it as a long-term career choice.


In this year’s Take Off in Travel, we’ll show you exactly why that perception is misguided, and why this fantastic industry is about much more than seasonal jobs..

As always, we have produced Take Off in association with the travel association ABTA, which does an amazing job of supporting and representing the industry at home and overseas.

And for the third year running, we have also teamed up with our headline sponsor dnata Travel, which employs, trains and supports employees all around the globe.

As you read the magazine, you’ll get an idea of the breadth of jobs available, discover different ways to get into the industry and learn more about specific areas including aviation, technology and the ever-growing cruise sector.

You can also catch up with some of the young people we’ve interviewed in previous editions of Take Off to see how they’re getting on.

Finally, you can put your inspiration into practice by checking out our company profiles which showcase a selection of great companies waiting to help you Take Off in Travel.
