Social Media Manager/Executive

About us

Cookson Adventures specialises in crafting the most creative travel experiences on the planet, counting some of the world’s most successful individuals among our clients.

We’ve discovered both Roman shipwrecks and a new species of killer whale, rehomed giant tortoises by helicopter, and been the very first to pilot a private submersible in Antarctica.

As a team, we are dynamic, driven and share a passion for meaningful travel, with a focus on environmental sustainability.

We have well-located offices in Holland Park, close to the leisure facilities of Westfield Shopping Centre and only a few minutes’ walk from the Central line and overground stations.

The role is primarily office based, with flexible working from home when required.
