About Us

We’re On the Beach, a technology-focused company that’s grown from a start-up into the UK’s leading online retailer of beach holidays. We may have grown in size but we haven’t lost our entrepreneurial spirit, working fast and creatively on exciting new ideas.

We proudly send over one million happy customers away on their perfect beach holiday every year – but our ambitions are much bigger than this and we need the right people to help us. We are split across two newly refurbished offices in Greater Manchester, our digital HQ in Manchester City Centre and our contact centre team based in Stockport – sadly nowhere near a beach! We’re looking for talented people to join our team. Have a look at our latest vacancies; we’d love to hear from you.
