Job Description

The company:

Flash Pack creates boutique group adventures for solo travellers aged 30-49.

We launched in 2014 to disrupt outdated clichés associated with group tours and empower a new generation of bold, energetic solo travellers. This untapped demographic had not only been underserved by the travel industry but misunderstood.

We quickly transformed into a high-growth, mid-stage start-up connecting Flashpackers in over 15 global markets.

Our mission is to create one million friendships through the power of group adventure. To reignite human connection and bring like-minded solo travellers in their 30s and 40s back together, on luxurious, authentic adventures, packed with hard-to-do-by-yourself experiences, that create lasting friendships. In fact, 80% of Flashpackers already stay in touch. And over 60% now come from outside the UK, bringing with it the potential for sustainable but rapid growth.
