Job Description

We are currently seeking a Worldwide Product Manager to work alongside Fiona Marshall, Head of Product, and the other talented members of the Macs team, to develop a range of active tours in the world’s most interesting destinations.

Your skills and experience

You are an established Product Manager for an adventure travel or tailor-made tour operator with proven experience of developing successful tours in Africa, Asia and/or Latin America. You have a deep-rooted understanding of the adventure travel marketplace and are exceptionally well-travelled.  Following systems and processes is natural to you but you have not lost the ability to think on your feet, adapt to change and come up with proven solutions. You are a natural team player, with an adventurous streak and it goes without saying that you should share our passion for walking and cycling! 

We'll look for you to have excellent written and verbal communication skills, including the ability to write good copy. You'll have the ability to think strategically, with refined sales and negotiation skills to enable product to be developed and priced at an optimum level to maximise on profit margins.  Good technical outdoor skills (eg GPS) are second nature to you and you have excellent organisational and planning skills. 

What you will be working on

  • Developing and implementing our worldwide product range
  • Monitoring existing product range and identifying and implementing improvements where necessary
  • Building relationships with local partners (existing and new) to maintain and improve product quality and identify new opportunities.
  • Building relationships and new products within inbound partners and agents
  • Working in partnership with the marketing, sales and operations teams to ensure the roll out of new product extensions and ranges
  • Undertaking research trips to better understand your product area and to help in developing new tours
