Sarah-Jane Alderson

Since I was a little girl all I ever wanted to do was work in the travel industry. As a child, our family spent countless summer holidays exploring the many Greek Islands with either Thomson or First Choice holidays and I was convinced that I wanted to be an overseas rep for the rest of my life. After studying Travel and Tourism further at Brighton City College and being able to do my work experience at Travelbound, I fell in love with the tour operating side of the industry. For a while colleagues in the office would see me jump from department to department as I learnt the ropes and developed my experience. Two years later and I have found a more permanent home in the Music Department where I can put my passion for travel and organisation to work co-ordinating the music and concert tours. I love my job and feel every bit of the excitement the groups feel when I piece together their tour. It’s fantastic to speak to Party Leaders after their tour and hear all about their music and concert experience.

Favourite city: With so much of the world still left to see, I have yet to choose just one favourite city. For now, my favourite place would have to be Sorrento. This picturesque little town on the Bay of Naples captured my heart from the minute we arrived! A historic trip into Pompeii is a must, and whilst a climb up Mount Vesuvius is no mean feat, it is definitely worth it for the amazing views.

About me: When I’m not at work or travelling to somewhere new, you’ll probably find me at home curled up on the sofa with my headphones listening to some country songs and enjoying a good read on my kindle.
