Careers with Expert Africa

Careers in specialist Africa travel

Expert Africa is a market-leading, award-winning specialist tour operator, with our main office near Richmond, south-west London.

We have long grown steadily over the last 25 years, establishing a strong track record for high levels of African expertise and customer service. We are now in the final stages of a brand refresh: the launch of our best-in-class new website is imminent, and we have a significant expansion planned thereafter.

Internships for students

We usually have the capacity to accept one intern in the Expert Africa team at any one time – and we focus on students who are undertaking this as part of a university course, typically a sandwich course in travel and tourism, or marketing.

These temporary posts usually last 3-6 months, and the intern normally focuses on projects under the direction of the MD and senior team members. We offer a basic travel / subsistence allowance, but otherwise these posts are unsalaried and strictly for volunteers.

Internships are designed to help university students understand more about a busy travel business, and specifically marketing and the travel industry; they are not designed as a precursor to employment with Expert Africa.

Speculative enquiries for ‘Assistant Specialist’ jobs

We welcome ‘speculative enquiries’, and will hold the most promising ones on file until we do have vacancies. We do fill positions this way, so strong candidates with relevant experience will often find this worth their while.

African enthusiasts based within reach of our London office who feel that they have something to offer us should please send in a full CV with a handwritten covering letter to our UK office, addressed to the MD.

These should include full details of your educational background, your office experience (especially in the African travel industry), and your travel experience – as well as an explanation of why you feel that Expert Africa might be the right company for you.

Please supply an email address if you’d like us to reply.
