Careers at On the Beach

We’re always on the lookout for amazing people to join us


We’re On the Beach. There’s over 500 of us, mostly at home, and sometimes in our office in Manchester.

We send nearly two million people on holiday every year (not together) and we’re expecting to get to three million pretty sharpish. Why? Because we’re the only holiday company who truly gets why going on your holidays is the best week or two of the year.

Better than birthdays. Better than Christmas. Better than the Monday after the Easter holidays, when the kids go back to school. It’s a time when the rules are relaxed, caution is thrown to the wind, and life’s simplest pleasures are truly indulged in. And because we get all of that, we work flipping hard to make our customers’ holidays last even longer.

With our market-leading offers, scalable, flexible and innovative technology, strong customer-value proposition and low cost base, we’re challenging existing players and redefining how customers book, manage and experience their holidays.

And it doesn’t stop there. With huge opportunities for growth, we’re on a long-term mission to become Europe’s biggest and most loved online retailer of beach holidays, so our story’s only really just begun...

We’re always on the lookout for talented, beach-loving people to join our team. Think you have what it takes? We’d love to hear from you.

Why join On the Beach?
Here’s just a few reasons...

Our ambition

We all have a common purpose that gets us out of bed in the morning, and that’s to find better and more innovative ways to deliver on our vision: to make it simple for customers to find, book and enjoy their holiday. We plan on doing this by:

  • Making it easy to buy our holidays
  • Being famous for our perks and personality
  • Making our customers’ jollies jollier
  • Offering more beaches to more people

Our culture

Our culture is something we’re super proud of - we’re a down to earth and friendly bunch so you’ll always find a sunshine-y, warm welcome from us.

Our CEO, Simon Cooper, has been at On the Beach since he founded the business in 2004 from his house in Macclesfield. We may have grown in size but we have not lost our entrepreneurial spirit. It’s in our DNA. With little bureaucracy or hierarchy to slow us down, and an open door (or zoom!) policy with access to the Exec and Senior Leadership Team to share ideas or ask questions whenever.

Ways of working

Our full-time hours are 37.5 hours per week, but we don’t have rigid hours at On the Beach so you can find a working pattern that’s right for you. We have core working hours between 10am - 4pm, so we can collaborate and enjoy the social side of work. Please note that our Contact Centre colleagues work on shift rotations; however, there are still plenty of flexible options available.

We also operate hybrid working, so we all work from home and from the office. The number of days in the office varies from team to team, and could be anything from once a fortnight to 1-3 days per week. We also have some fully-remote opportunities available.

More information on our ways of working can be found on our job adverts.

Our technology

We have an ambition to become the biggest travel tech business in Europe, specialising in vertical packaged holidays. With our single platform, multi-brand strategy, we provide a significant structural challenge to legacy tour operators and are changing the way customers’ book their holidays.

Our Product teams are cross-functional and data led. We embrace agile and lean practices, working within a continuous delivery, Dev-ops environment. We believe in hiring smart people and empowering them through autonomy and putting data at the heart of decision making.

Personal growth

At On the Beach, we really do whatever we can to help each other reach our potential and realise our ambitions - whatever it takes! We know not everyone learns in the same way, so we have several different learning and development initiatives which will help you do just that.

Diversity and inclusion

Being diverse at On the Beach means having a team that reflects the world we live in and the customers we serve. Better decisions happen when they are made by diverse teams with a range of voices, perspectives and experiences. We’re proactively working on making sure that we have diverse voices that are heard, and where everyone feels they belong, and we have a number of colleague-led initiatives to make sure we deliver on our commitment. You can read more about what we’re doing to champion equality, diversity and inclusion by visiting our pledge.
