Travel, leisure and culture

Fascinated by the world of opportunities? Would you like a career, combining a job with opportunities to travel and explore new places at home and abroad?

Take geography with you as you lead a group of holiday makers on an expedition, market London to New Yorkers for the 2012 Olympics or research and write travel literature for a guide book company.

It may be that you work in this sector for a short time after graduating such as spending a year teaching English in China combined with a chance for your own travel.

If you love travel and experiencing different cultures, this sector will appeal to you. You will need to be hard working, outgoing and adaptable and it is essential that you are able to be customer focused and not phased by facing new challenges, the ability to think on your feet could prove very useful.
