Jerusalem Branch Manager – Socially Conscious Travel Company

About the Opportunity & MEJDI Tours

This is a unique opportunity to join the leading travel focused social enterprise in a key leadership role to help us further our mission. Our mission is to disrupt the travel industry until social impact and human connection are just as important to the common vacationer as destinations, accommodations, activities and restaurants!  If you want to learn a little bit more about our approach, please watch this short TED talk by our co-founder Aziz Abu Sarah: https://tinyurl.com/MejdiTED

Because of our critically important mission, we carefully hire the best talent we can find. We like people who bring out the best in their colleagues. We look for people who lead by example, not by fear. And we want you to bring the same warmth, charisma, and energy to an internal team meeting as you would to an external client call. Put simply, we don’t do dog-eat-dog, and while we expect big results, we know we won’t achieve them long-term with an unhappy team.
