Suzy Faulkner, Head of Product Development & Distribution - London
"I wanted to work for a global company to give me the opportunity of being exposed to multiple areas of the business as well as people and cultures. Working at VisitBritain has broadened my perspectives, and in turn enhanced my professional capabilities which has added value to the organisation.
There is flexibility in working as my agenda could cover calls in Asia in the morning and webinars in the USA in the evening, which has led to a happier, healthier work life balance. I have also expanded my knowledge of global markets and learnt best practices relating to policies and strategies."
Henriette Danielsen, Marketing & Communications Executive - Norway
"When working for a global company, I continually meet new people, learn about different cultures, and expand my understanding of other people. This gives me the opportunity to be more empathetic, gain more insights into how people make decisions, and become a better team player.
Working at VisitBritain has really helped me to build upon my professional skills and made me feel that the work I do is useful and valuable to the organisation. I am also given exposure to multiple areas of the business and provided with more opportunities for job movement within the organization. It's a great place for personal development and growth."
Robin Kagenaar, Digital Marketing Manager Netherlands - Amsterdam
"Catching up on travel trends in Southern Europe, sharing ideas with colleagues in the Nordics and Russia, video calls with France & Germany. Working in the Europe team is truly international. You learn something new every day, from tiny - but important - cultural differences to massive overlaps in traveller behaviour you never knew were there. Working at VisitBritain is inspiring, energising and educational and you get to meet some of the nicest, most professional people around."
Misha Kim, Marketing Manager - Seoul, China and North East Asia
"Britain is perceived very well in South Korea and I am happy to represent all there is to offer to the markets I work in. The UK was actually the first country I visited overseas and it's where I met my husband, so it's a very special place to me.
My colleagues in London and in my region have always made me feel part of the team. We are so diverse, dynamic and delightful and I am so proud to work alongside people who share my love for Britain."
Marieke van Dijl, B2B Manager Europe - Amsterdam
"It’s great to work for VisitBritain. We are a small team in the Amsterdam office but I truly feel part of a large international team. My focus is B2B in Europe, but I am also involved in international projects. Our European B2B team have regular video calls to share ideas and best practices and we continually challenge, motivate and help each other. It’s inspiring to work with colleagues from other cultures who are committed to driving tourism to Britain."
Celia Diaz, PR & Content Manager - Spain
"I have been working at VisitBritain for 5 years now and every day is full of surprises and challenges. As a PR professional I have worked in different areas of the tourism industry before I joined VisitBritain. One of the best things about working for an international company is the amount of colleagues you meet from all around the globe. From Australia to Canada, to India and Brazil – we all work together to spread awareness of Britain as a destination."
