Why work for Swoop?

On the surface, we’re a travel agency specialising in adventurous trips to Antarctica, Patagonia and the Arctic. Dig deeper and you’ll find a diverse team of thirty plus people who are deeply knowledgeable and passionate about their destinations, working with individual autonomy and shared purpose. Customers cite our three websites as the best guidebooks to their regions, and our trips and service are second to none.

Swoop is heading towards being not just the global number one for our destinations and a stand-out brand in the travel industry, but also the centre of gravity for a worldwide community of people with an enduring interest in the experiences that can be found at the ends of the earth. If you like the sound of joining Swoop but don't find a position below which quite matches your own skills, please do get in touch anyway.

We know that to get the best out of our employees, we need to make sure they know how valued they are, whatever form that might take. A few pints down the pub after work, weekly deliveries of fruit and biscuits to keep people going, an annual wellbeing fund for your individual hobbies, and adhoc micro-adventures to the outskirts of Bristol, we make sure we reward our team’s hard work and ensure we have fun in and out of the office.

Everybody that works for Swoop brings something a little different to the party, after-all, life would be pretty boring if we were all the same, wouldn’t it? We’ve got bakers, climbers, divers, cyclists, writers, singers, skiers, dancers, horse riders, fishermen, runners, photographers, walkers, cold water swimmers, the list goes on. However, despite our different interests, we're all passionate about doing the best for our customers and making Swoop the best it can be. We’re a hard working, dynamic, innovative, caring team and we’re always on the look out for new people to join our ranks.

Here’s some thoughts from our Swoopers…

Ange - Patagonia Bookings

Working at Swoop is quite special and I am not sure I would get the same elsewhere

Cassia - Polar Specialist

It’s a pretty fantastic place to work. There’s such an incredible team of talented people - it blows my mind. It’s more than just a job it’s a culture. People are dedicated and passionate.


Tennessee - Polar Specialist

A job isn’t just turning up and then leaving - it’s part of who you are, knowledge, education, your life - that’s what I see here. It’s not just thinking about the pay check, it’s a reflection of you and your personal trajectory

Lauren - Head of Marketing

I like the feel of working at Swoop - laughter in the office, the sunset from the window of The Nest, the fact that there is Champagne under the sink. Swoop is more than just a place to work for me.


Alice - EA and Office Manager

Working for Swoop is like nowhere else I’ve ever worked. The team spirit is second to none and we definitely know how to play hard as well as work hard!

Charlie - Head of Analytics & Insight

I think this office is quite rare - to do what we do together and have the relationships we have. There’s a strong team, and a good group of people that make everyday interesting.

Amy - People & Culture Manager

I love working at Swoop. Its fast paced, ambitious and everyone here is driven to succeed. We work really hard but make time for really cool adventures, beers and bubbles too.

John - Polar Sales Manager

People don’t just turn up and then go home - everyone wants to be successful. We sell well, we market well, we build CRMs well, we fix them well. We do fun really well.

Don’t just take our word for it. This is what our customers have to say…

Swoop was amazing from day 1. The planning with Peter was great. Once the trip was planned, the logistics were flawless. The only time I had to reach out, Hilary came to the rescue in minutes. Honestly, I wouldn’t change a thing and I recommended Swoop to numerous people while we were on this trip. I will continue to do so and we will not look anywhere else if we plan another trip to this region

Outstanding! From start to finish Swoop never missed a beat! I would book with Swoop in a heartbeat and have already been recommending Swoop to others.

We were so impressed with SWOOP putting our trip together that we wondered what other geographical areas you specialize in, just so we could use you again!
