The reasons to work for A&K are perhaps the best expressed by the success stories of current employees like these.
Senior Private Travel Consultant
“I travelled to Africa with A&K many years ago, as a travel agent, and ever since that first trip, I have wanted to work for A&K. “When the opportunity came to work for A&K I jumped at the chance. That was over 12 years ago, and I can say I enjoy working here today as much as, if not more than, I did when I first started. “I have worked in the Special Interest Group department my entire time here. I have handled groups ranging anywhere from ten to 200 guests. Each group is different and presents challenges and learning opportunities, giving me a chance to increase my knowledge of destinations all over the world. “I take great pride in working for A&K, a travel company that is recognized around the world. In each destination that I visit, no matter where in the world, I feel like I am visiting with my A&K family.”
Senior Private Travel Sales Consultant
“I caught the travel bug when I had the opportunity to au pair in Europe the summer after high school. After a brief stint with a not-for-profit organization following college, I was attracted to A&K by their exotic tours and philanthropic initiatives. “What has become my career began with my role as a sales assistant, and in the following few years I moved up through the ranks and I am now a Senior Private Travel Sales Consultant specializing in custom tours and private jet trips for A&K’s elite travellers. “A&K has given me the opportunity to travel and explore many places all over the globe, furthering my passion for travel and my career. The most fulfilling part of my job is creating dream journeys for my guests and memories that will last them a lifetime.”
