Think you have what it takes?
At Butterfield & Robinson, we are always seeking new faces to fill the multi-faceted role of a B&R Guide. B&R Guides are an exceptional group. They are architects, lawyers, musicians, athletes, art historians, teachers, students, chefs, writers… all taking a few months (or years!) from their careers to share their love of travel. We believe that the best guides are people who bring with them a great attitude: a passion for the region or country in which they are guiding, lots of energy, character, charisma, confidence and creativity.
Ideal candidates are:
- Local experts
- Outdoor enthusiasts
- Seasoned travellers
- Problem solvers
- Quick thinkers
- Experienced in the service industry
All B&R guides must also meet these required skills and qualifications in order to be considered for our team:
- Deep knowledge of where they guide
- Strong physical condition
- Fluent in the language of the region(s) where they guide
- Valid driver’s license
- Ability to drive a standard transmission vehicle
- Valid first aid/CPR certification
- Good knowledge of bicycle mechanics
Although our search for world-class guides is ongoing, we conduct most of our recruiting during the winter and early spring as we prepare for the upcoming season. To be considered for a position as a guide, applicants must be available for work and travel during our European season, which runs from May to October inclusive. We thank all applicants for their interest in B&R, but only those candidates with the required skills and qualifications noted here will be contacted for an interview.
Statement for Diversity And Inclusion
Travel is the act of celebrating differences. As a company built upon this act, our mission at B&R is to foster a diverse and inclusive environment that reflects what we represent.
We unite people from all walks of life, whether it be in our offices or on the road. We encourage our team and stakeholders to show up fully and confidently exactly as they are, knowing that having a variety of voices and perspectives contributing to our business goals helps us deliver better experiences to our travellers.
Butterfield & Robinson is an equal opportunity employer committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment. We consider qualified applicants regardless of race, colour, religion, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, disability, gender identity, or any other grounds prohibited by law. This meets the Ontario and Canadian Human Rights Codes list of prohibited grounds.
Our Company Values
Below are the principles that guide our team and translate into the type of business we operate and the product we offer.
Passion & Creativity
Every member of our team has a passion for their craft and a level of creativity required to deliver the type of experiences we do. These principles apply to our trip planning, on-the-ground research, guiding, marketing, operations — to all that we do.
Community & Connection
From our guides to our office teams, our independent contractors (region managers) to our travellers, our suppliers, and the people we meet on the road, everyone connected to a B&R trip is part of our community. Within this group, we celebrate diversity as an accurate representation of our travellers and the trip experiences we offer.
Growth & Innovation
We only made it this far by reiterating our processes and developing our product. We are always seeking new ways to travel that stay in line with our values. Evolution is what makes us a healthy, viable and ever-growing business.
Integrity & Trust
We slow down to get it right, aiming to do the right thing in everything we do. We only service where we can provide value and are transparent in our actions.
