Job summary:

    Cookson Adventures deal in unique trips, one-off experiences, bespoke adventures and beyond-luxury travel. We like to think that every trip is - if not a world first - so personalised and unique that we can truly say they'll never be exactly repeated.
    We need someone who embraces curiosity and a passion for exploring alternative approaches to the conventional path. They should have a yearning to discover the unexplored and to chase down the greatest opportunities wherever they lie and create the most original and exciting journeys for our clients.
    This role will be the creative lead for the business, embracing our values of uniqueness, passion and daring to be different, and will reinforce them throughout our project design and implementation process.
    They must be able to put their ideas down on paper and communicate them effectively through our marketing and implementation experts to draw in new clients and take our projects to the next level.
    You are so creative your first role will be to design your own job title. Chief creative, head of creation, guardian of product? You can help decide.
    Your role will be to understand our company and our clients intimately. You will then lead the design of concepts that will set us apart from ordinary travel companies, reinforcing our reputation as a trail-blazer and market leader.
    You will be paid to think, to imagine travel and exploration that has never been achieved or attempted before; taking out clients where others couldn’t or wouldn’t. It will be adding the touches and details to bring the environment to life and immerse the traveller within the experience.
    You will be the beating creative heart of our business.
    Your 'deliverables' will be new concepts and new journeys, perfectly matching ideas to our new and existing clients.
    Of course, travel will be part of the role. You will have to try some of the ideas you propose, perhaps even accompanying or hosting your guests.
    At some points you may need to put your ideas down on paper, help compile a budget, or even manage the delivery of a trip - so you are adaptable, articulate, concise and intelligent. You are intellectually curious and love to be challenged. and driven by the excitement of being in a growing, dynamic environment.
