About the job


We’re on a mission to inspire people to live a more adventure-rich life, help a global community of local and independent 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’ve just been named ‘Best Travel Agent of the Year’ at the Travolution Awards, as well as picking up awards at the 2021 Safe and Sustainable Awards and WTM Responsible Tourism Awards for our industry leadership in response to the climate crisis. We’re in the process of being certified as B Corp.

So if you want to build a global leading brand in one of the fastest-growing sectors in travel, and get a kick out of making good things happen, then you are in the right place.

The Role

We are on the lookout for an experienced Adventure Product Manager to join our dynamic, ambitious (and remote) team. You’ll be responsible for the start-to-finish creation of new adventures; from researching new destinations and sourcing the best local hosts, to creating finalised itineraries and ensuring their commercial viability. You should feel comfortable turning your hand to product development in a range of continents and countries – this role is not destination specific, however if you had experience designing adventure trips in Asia, this would be an advantage. 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 assessment decisions, and negotiating pricing and contractual partnership 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, negotiating pricing and contracting.
  • Developing new itineraries that are unique, inspiring and commercially viable.
  • Building trips online, sourcing media and getting trips ready for the Content team to bring to life.
  • Proactively contributing to product growth strategy and direction.

Requirements

You should apply if…

  • You have significant experience (3+ years) in product management within the adventure, travel or outdoor sector.
  • You have detailed knowledge of the active adventure travel industry
  • You have knowledge of, and a passion for, sustainability and tourism delivery.
  • You are experienced in managing numerous tasks in tandem and effectively prioritising the most urgent.
  • You have a passion for adventure travel and for creating the best global adventures.
  • You are a self-starter who can make decisions and confidently manage your workload with minimal supervision.
  • You have an eye for outstanding media and you pride yourself on your meticulous attention to detail.
  • You are an effective communicator with excellent written and spoken English and strong interpersonal skills.
  • You are able to work under pressure, learn and adapt quickly, and adhere to tight deadlines.
  • You are flexible, thrive on change, are self-driven and able to work independently as part of a remote team.
  • What we’re doing here at MBA excites you!

We’d like it if you had…

  • Working knowledge of the North America outbound adventure tourism market.

We’re a bunch of team-players, so it’s important you’re happy getting involved in tasks (big or small) outside your remit when required. As a fast growing business your responsibilities may change but we always look to promote from within and provide opportunities to develop your career based on your personal ambitions. .

Benefits

We’re building a team of super talented, passionate and ambitious people. We’re committed to building an amazing place to work. You can expect:

  • A competitive salary
  • A generous quarterly sales bonus (based on company performance)
  • An employee share option scheme – everyone is a part-owner here
  • An entrepreneurial environment where great ideas are actively encouraged, and taking responsibility for them is expected
  • Super flexible working arrangements and a remote team set-up
  • Up to 30 days paid holiday a year
  • Company meet-ups in a variety of inspiring and adventurous settings
  • Budget and time for continued learning and self-development
  • A pension scheme (UK-based employees)
  • The warm fuzzy feeling that comes with knowing you are making a huge difference to small independent businesses, local economies and communities.

Application Details:

  • Closing date for applications: Sunday 10th April
  • We reserve the right to close the application process early so please apply asap – applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
  • Application process: Short video interview, in-person interview with a written exercise
  • Start date: May 2022 ideally
  • Salary: £34,000-£38,000 depending on experience, plus stock options and sales bonus of approx 15% (£6k) per annum.
  • Remote: If you see ‘London’ this is just where we are registered, but not where we are based. You can be based where you like in the UK/EU within 2hrs of GMT. We’re spread all over.

Note – we are also recruiting in parallel for two Adventure Product Operations Managers and the two roles will work closely together to deliver the best possible trips for our customers, so depending on where your strongest skills and personal passions are, you might want to consider that role instead. If you would like to be considered for both the Adventure Expansion Manager role and the Adventure Product Operations role and feel like your skills are a really strong match for both please only apply once, and indicate in your covering letter why you think you would be suitable for each role, and which is your preferred role.

We are an equal opportunities employer and strongly encourage applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds to put their name in the hat. Our fully flexible working arrangements exist to support everyone in the team achieve that all-important work/life balance.
