DIRECTOR FINANCE, OPERATIONS & STRATEGY , Kenya

Ben jij avontuurlijk, ondernemend, toe aan een nieuwe omgeving, en wil jij je strategy, finance en organisatorische talenten gebruiken om een travel startup in Afrika te laten groeien als kool? Dan zoeken we jou!

Charlie’s Travels (“CT”) organiseert tailor made avontuurlijke reizen in Oost- en Zuid-Afrika voor groepen, families en koppels. Afrika is booming en reizigers willen steeds vaker het “echte” Afrika ervaren – een standaard reis voldoet niet langer. Charlie’s Travels biedt zelfgemaakte experiences, die je nergens anders kunt vinden.

Na 1.5 jaar geleden succesvol als 1-pitter geopereerd te hebben en meer dan honderd reizen georganiseerd te hebben, heeft CT in Oktober 2016 een ambitieuze uitbreidingsstrategie uitgerold. Na het aanstellen van een lokaal operations team, is er een start-up villa opgericht, waar nu meer dan 15 internationale ‘sales en business developers’ werken aan de groei van onze core business (de Nederlandse markt), en het ontwikkelen van verschillende nieuwe markten. De reeds bewezen core business richt zich op groepsreizen (veelal studenten lustrumreizen), familiereizen en avontuurlijke reizen voor jonge koppels (adventurous lovebirds).


Het is onze ambitie om binnen 12 maanden ons marktaandeel in Nederland te vervijfvoudigen, en onze intrede te hebben gemaakt in de DACH mark, met alle additionele operations die daarvoor nodig zijn. Op dit moment rollen we nieuwe proposities uit op het gebied van Motorsafaris, Golfreizen, Festivalreizen, Kitesurfreizen en zijn we actief bezig de Duitstalige en Aziatische markt aan te boren met business developers uit de regio.
