About Us

We're Travel Chapter, a market leader in self-catering holidays.

Having evolved from a small holiday letting agency in the South West to a UK network of travel brands, we pride ourselves on delivering the very best service to our customers and property owners alike. Along the way, we’ve nurtured a caring and collaborative culture that drives us forward and keeps our team inspired and motivated every day.

We are passionate about what we do and we like to have fun whilst doing it. We take a common-sense approach to getting things done. We get things wrong at times and that’s ok! We learn from it and adapt—remembering to stay curious and never stop evolving.

Your Next Chapter

We know that the perfect candidate who ticks every box doesn’t exist, so if you’re excited by the role and can do most of the above – please get in touch. You could be exactly what we need!

Ideally, we’re looking for:

  • Previous experience in a similar facilities management role
  • A customer-focused approach
  • Experience procuring, negotiating and working with third party suppliers
  • A highly organised approach, with great attention to detail
  • Great communication skills
  • Project management experience
What's in it for you?

Apart from joining a rapidly growing company with a great culture and a big focus on employee development, the great news is we also offer competitive salaries and benefits which we feel look after our team well:

  • 25 days paid holidays plus bank holiday (pro rata)
  • A day off for yours or a loved one’s birthday
  • £500 paid towards a holiday of your choice
  • Paid day to volunteer with a charity of your choice
  • Friends and family discount scheme
  • Life assurance for your peace of mind
  • Social clubs whether you’re into pets, fitness, gardening, sustainability, nutrition etc. there's something for everyone
  • Great social events - we are well known for our Christmas parties!

 

Diversity is key to our success and we work hard to make sure we’re inclusive. Let us know if you need any adjustments made to the application or selection process so you can do your best and we’ll be happy to help.

What will I be doing?

This will be a busy, hands-on role where you’ll be rolling your sleeves up and getting involved in all aspects of the day to day. You’ll have a wide range of responsibilities and will need to keep a lot of plates spinning.

Although you will be based in our head office in Bideford, you will need to regularly travel to our other offices all over the UK, but we’ll be offering a company car to help you with this.

You’ll be responsible for the oversight of the facilities management for our entire organisation. The sorts of things this involves include:

  • Management and leadership of a small team
  • Planned and preventative maintenance schedules, as well as dealing with reactive issues as they happen
  • Health and safety and continuing driving our H&S culture with a common-sense approach
  • Ensuring budgets are met by negotiating supplies, quotes and contracts
  • Responsibility for company vehicle fleet logistics.
  • Working with internal stakeholders and third parties to continually improve our premises and to meet our future teams’ needs
  • Assisting in the onboarding and adoption of new premises when required or when a new business joins our business
  • Business continuity planning
