Carrier is a chic and sophisticated brand that embodies a world of beauty and elegance, constantly rising above the rest, we stand out for being different and authentic, creative and extraordinary. Our purpose is to inspire others to be who they can be, to tap into the potential of every trip to have a positive impact. We apply this same purpose to our people, tapping into everyone’s potential to be who they want to be; an inspiring leader, a better parent, a creative thinker or perhaps it’s more about embracing challenge, learning new skills, or the desire to give back and contribute more to the world – all of this and more is possible at Carrier.
We believe it’s people that make the real difference, our people are at the heart of our business. It’s our human minds, not technology, that drives how we think, work, create, interact, find solutions to problems and conduct friendships and relationships.
Intelligent, knowledgeable and empowered, our people take great pride in the positive impact they have on people’s lives, those travelling and those who welcome us into their country. We ensure everyone at Carrier feels appreciated, understood, and valuable to our organization.
We have held the TTG Luxury award for Tour Operator of the Year since the awards’ inception three years ago (2018-2022), Luxury Workplace of the year 2022 and also hold the Aspire awards for Luxury Tour Operator of the Year and Luxury Team of the Year 2022. These highly recognised and credible accolades are a result of our exceptional people. The knowledge, skills and craftsmanship honed over 40 years led Condé Nast Traveller to believe we have a sixth sense when it comes to curating holidays and Vanity Fair to recognise the extra mile we always go to for our clients.

We understand that for our company to thrive, our workforce need to be fully engaged. We aim to give all of our employees a real sense of purpose in the workplace and empower them do their jobs to the best of their ability, but we also care about things like flexibility and work-life balance which we know is equally as important. Whilst we take the time to listen to our employees to find out what drives and motivates them, we also take feedback on what challenges and frustrates them so we can create new initiatives designed around making the workplace even better.
All employees have Personal Growth Plans and we actively invest in training and development in order for people to reach their full potential. This may include extensive overseas travel and industry leading events for example.
