Working for Powder Byrne
Who We Are
Powder Byrne is a leading specialist tour operator providing individually tailored luxury holidays for discerning clients. Established in 1985, thanks to our dedication to the highest levels of quality and service, our products have become synonymous with exceptional personal service, exclusive childcare solutions and the flexibility to work around our clients needs.
We are an entrepreneurial business which has grown into a successful brand with a diverse product range spanning European family holidays, skiing adventures, world-wide adventurous travel programmes and luxury international property development. Join us and be part of a growing, successful business with a proud heritage and a bright future.
We have been guided over the past three decades by a commitment to our core values. Whether working in resort, or in our London HQ, all Powder Byrne staff share the same commitment to our clients, and to delivering the very best possible service.
- 'Nothing is too much trouble' approach to delivering solutions for our clients
- Passionate about our clients and their needs, adding value at every opportunity
- Embracing new ideas and change for the better
- Working hard and playing hard
- We're only as good as our last holiday
- Contribute and be an active member in a winning team.
Our business follows the seasons and there are many opportunities to travel and gain experience working in our resorts, delivering great service directly to our clients. Additionally, educational and research trips run during the off-season, and our staff are encouraged to expand their knowledge through special staff travel incentives and discounted travel opportunities thanks to our strong partnerships.
The environment we work in means a lot to us, and we believe working in a modern, smart, uncluttered environment which we can all take pride in contributes towards achieving a positive, productive team spirit. We have the PB Cafe, a space to take a break from your desk for lunch (we encourage everyone to take time away from their desk at lunchtime), which has a flatscreen TV, a microwave, tea and coffee facilities for all and we provide a daily fresh fruit basket and filtered water - a healthy lifestyle is encouraged!
As well as a cycle to work scheme and loan assistance for annual travel, we reward loyal employees with annual gym membership and benefits and discounts for staff travel. Additional holiday allowance is offered to staff who work in resort for extended periods as we aim to help all our employees achieve the right work:life balance. A childcare voucher scheme assists parents with the provision of childcare, and annual travel insurance means the team can travel with peace of mind.
Community and Social
We are a close team in London and we collaborate closely with our resort teams throughout the seasons, and there are regular social opportunities to forge close ties between staff before and after a busy season. We have an active social calendar which includes regular after work drinks in the wide choice of Putney venues.
