OUR CORE PURPOSE: CREATING EXPERIENCES THAT MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY
We are an award-winning company that prides itself on creating experiences that make people happy. We do that by helping people escape to nature. It’s that simple.
That mission extends beyond just our walkers who take to the trails. It means that for our employees, working at Hillwalk Tours must be a happy experience. We hire people who care about what we’re doing, support them and look after them. We give them opportunities to learn and grow.
OUR CORE VALUES
Small Details, Big Picture: We take great pride in our work and understand how small details can have an effect on the bigger picture.
Fairness is Fundamental: When making a decision, think compassionately, speak with honesty, act with integrity and look to find the best and fairest solution for everyone involved.
Team Spirit Matters: Team spirit is not simply about working together to achieve great results. It’s not about being best pals with everyone. It’s about a sense of community – share in each other’s successes, stick together when times are tough and respect each other always.
Professional, No Matter What: Being professional to us is not about wearing a suit. It’s about being competent at your job, embracing feedback, being open to change, displaying good judgement and having the discipline to remain composed, courteous and respectful at all times.
A Can-Do Attitude, Always: Don’t settle for an outcome which you know could be better. Be tenacious – there’s always another way. No matter what challenges you face, stay positive.
A WORD FROM HILLWALK TOURS FOUNDER
‘Are you passionate about your job? Does your work environment nurture your talents? Do you feel part of a team working towards a common goal? The answers to these questions matter. Definitely to me. And probably to you too.
As a manager, if one of my team answers “No” to any of these questions, I need to know what we can do to make things better. Our business is built on the people who work for us. They are at the heart of everything we do. Without them, who convinces our customers to go hiking with us? Who contacts the B&B owners to ensure all the preparations are in place for a successful walking tour?
By putting our employees’ concerns at the centre of what we do, we are confident that success, for the entire Hillwalk Team, will follow. I can’t promise that we have the dream job for you. However, I can promise that we will do our best to ensure that you are happy, motivated and given all the support you need to do your job.’
