Area Manager

Yorkshire & The Humber – permanent/full time

About Snap

Snap is transforming how we travel from city to city, a travel tech start-up changing the face of intercity transport through on-demand coach travel.

We’re the Premier League of coach travel… on-demand. Our system matches people wanting to make similar trips, with the top drivers and coaches, from the country’s very best independent operators.

Backed by a superb mix of institutional and private investors (led by Kindred Capital, Oxford Capital and ADV), we’re building a team of curious and capable transport and technology inspired folk based in our London head office and across the UK.

With Snap you can also build your own tailored trip, and share it with your network. If enough people choose it – we’ll run it. Tens of thousands of people have discovered Snap since we launched, and 95% of our reviews are 5-STAR… don’t take our word for it, check us out on Facebook

Snap is scaling fast, whilst we hire with care. That’s because we know our culture is as important as our mission. We want our people to form relationships that last and grow; well beyond their career with us. Finding like-minded people who really enjoy working together, sharing and taking pride in each other’s achievements is more important than any other consideration
