    Any CVs sent to any member of our team on a speculative basis will not be recognised and we will not accept liability for any fee or commission should we subsequently employ a candidate who applied to us directly or was introduced to us by an instructed agency that may also have been submitted speculatively by an uninstructed agency.

  • Here's an outline of the process for the Travel Specialist/Manager, Global Travel Advisor and Sales Operations Specialist roles: 

    If your application demonstrates the applicable skill set and travel experience, you can expect to hear from our Recruitment department asking you to complete a more detailed video interview. This is an opportunity to tell us a bit about yourself, your understanding of the role and why you want to work for Audley. Don’t be afraid to show off and really convince us why this is the right role for you!

    The next stage will be for you to meet us for a virtual interview that will be scheduled using Microsoft Teams. The interview will be scheduled for either 60 or 90 minutes depending on the role that you have applied for. 

    Our interviews are comprehensive but conversational, we look for candidates who are inspired by our values and driven to be successful.

    We truly believe you are interviewing us just as much as we are interviewing you, so please ask questions at any stage throughout the process!

    Here's an outline of the process for the non-sales roles:

    Following your application, if you are successful you'll then be invited to a phone interview to discuss your experience and find out more about the role you have applied for. We will arrange a time that suits so you have some time to prepare, and the call usually lasts around 20-30 minutes.

    If you are successful in the phone interview we'll invite you to a office based interview or a virtual interview that will be scheduled using Microsoft Teams. Depending on the role there could be a short exercise to complete.

    Should there be a third stage interview, this will be advised at the start of the recruitment process.
