th
Best Company
to work for

Audley's history started in 1991 when their founder and director Craig Burkinshaw started escorting small group tours around Vietnam. In 1996, Craig joined forces with John Brewer and together they created ‘Asian Journeys'. In 2001, following the launch of the company's South America programme, they became ‘Audley Travel'. As much as the business has grown and diversified over the years, there are a few things that remain consistent. One of these is their great culture and the fact it is a brilliant place to work. Audley offers an incredible benefits package and an on-going career development plan. Audley invests heavily in its people and is dedicated to providing the training and development everyone needs to be successful in their roles. All their staff are passionate about travel and everyone gets the chance to go on a familiarisation trip overseas to experience the Audley product first hand. Additionally, they offer discounted staff travel and even have a dedicated staff travel executive. Their job is to advise employees where the best deals are, in order to make the most of the enhanced annual leave benefits. They are really proud to have received a number of awards and accolades over the years, recognising their commitment to providing the best possible experiences and service to their clients and provide a fantastic working environment for their people.

Featured Workplace Factors

Giving Something Back

94% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Audley has invested heavily in management development and launched a global programme for all managers called ‘Navigators'. The programme lasts for 12 months and will operate over the next few years. Two external suppliers are co-facilitating the programme with the People Development team at Audley. Costing c£4k pp, the programme is very comprehensive and consists of a welcome webinar, 4 x 2 day facilitator led sessions and a half day close event.


The structure of the programme is based on ‘Managing myself; Managing my team; Managing Audley'. At the start of the programme all managers complete a 360 degree survey so they receive feedback at the start of the programme knowing the areas they wish to develop. The feedback has been extremely positive and people like how the programme has been tailored to Audley focusing on practicality.


Audley has a mentoring programme, where all successors and top talent receive mentoring. They have also focused on matching managers/leaders with projects that are happening outside of their immediate areas, thus developing their knowledge and skills giving them a broader outlook and understanding of the business.
