Our mission is simple, to hear our clients say “That was the best holiday we’ve ever had… we’ll be back”.  

Reporting to the Head of Marketing and working with internal staff and our roster of PR agencies your mission will be to create and execute our PR and Social Media strategy. 

You’ll manage journalist and influencer stays in our villas, negotiating coverage in print, online and on social media, planning for their arrival, fact-checking after their stay and monitoring for the resulting coverage. 

As the go-to person at The Thinking Traveller for all things PR you’ll have a great memory for detail and an encyclopaedic knowledge of the journalists we are working with and have worked with in the past.
