Ella Frimpong | Travelbound International

Ella Frimpong

During my second year of my Law degree I carried out a 2 month internship with TUI in the summer of 2013 in the Crawley office. After finishing my degree, I applied for the Graduate Sales Programme in September and was placed into Travelbound in October 2014. Initially, I started in Travelbound’s Music and Performing Arts Department where I had an amazing opportunity to sell one of Disney Performing Arts’ events; this was my first and one of my favourite projects! 

As part of the International Team, I am currently based in Dubai as the Regional Account Manager for the Middle East. I not only get to offer all the amazing worldwide trips Travelbound International have available to schools in the Middle East, but I also get to enjoy and learn more about a new culture first-hand.  

Favourite city:  Rio de Janeiro! In the summer of 2014 I was lucky enough to travel to Brazil during the World Cup and spend some time in Rio. I found the city to be different from anywhere I had been previously; bright, colourful and buzzing 24-hours a day. I also managed to take in visits to some of Brazil’s most iconic points of interest, including the world famous Copacabana beach and Christ the Redeemer.

About me: Working for Travelbound has been an amazing experience so far! I have always been a strong believer in travel being the best form of education and therefore being able to send children away from home, often for the first time, really is a dream job. It has also meant I have been able to travel to some amazing destinations that I may never have had the chance to visit.
