What We Can Offer

Newmarket Holidays is an award-winning holiday company with a team that loves travel. We share our travelling experiences with our colleagues and encourage everyone to go on our holidays. For years we worked in a 1930s building with lots of little offices, but now we've moved to a modern office in the London suburbs, next door to a mainline railway station, and the walls have gone, and the sofas have arrived. We're really proud of the working environment we have created, and the strong focus on collaborative working and cross-team projects that it encourages. That said, we know the world has moved on and as such, we subscribe to hybrid working with the majority of our team working from our Wallington office twice a week at least. Wednesdays are a 'core day' and when we typically arrange 'all company' social events.

Benefits include discounted holidays, holiday exchange scheme where you can buy extra, or sell, annual leave days, paid charity/volunteering days, health and well-being related perks like discounted gym membership, eyecare, and cycle to work schemes, alongside 33 days' holiday and workplace pension scheme.

We challenge each other, and that makes us better at what we do.

We celebrate success, reward fantastic performance and have a strong focus on personal development with learning opportunities for all, including a Leadership Programme that mixes the theoretical with the practical and creates strong working partnerships across different areas.
