Since 1853 explorers and adventurers such as Amy Johnson, David Livingstone, Captain Robert Falcon Scott, Ernest Shackleton, Florence Nightingale, Ranulph Fiennes, Bill Bryson, Michael Palin and even Sherlock Holmes (in The Hound of the Baskervilles) have relied on the expert knowledge of our staff to help them plan expeditions to the farthest flung corners of the world.

Today, our shops in London and Bristol are filled not only with the widest range of maps and travel guides available anywhere in the world, but with travel specialists who aid our customers in their search for their next big adventure.

If you’re looking for a role that lets you use your insatiable passion for travel and excellent customer service skills to help people discover new places and unique experiences, we want to hear from you.

We also have a business division based in Manchester and a London based website both of which are often looking for candidates with similar skills.

We look forward to hearing from you – and maybe to you joining the team in the future.

Very best wishes,
Tony Maher - Managing Director
