This is an exciting opportunity to gain insight into working for the national tourist board.

Tourism is currently worth £127 billion to Britain’s economy and as Britain’s seventh largest export industry, inbound tourism’s economic contribution is currently valued at £26.2 billion.

VisitBritain/VisitEngland are non-departmental public bodies, funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS). The organisation plays a unique role in building England’s tourism product through raising Britain’s profile worldwide, increasing the volume and value of tourism exports, growing the UK’s valuable business events sector and developing England and Britain’s visitor economy.

Working with a wide range of partners in both the UK and overseas, our mission is to make tourism one of the most successful and productive sectors for the UK economy.

The VisitBritain/VisitEngland insight day has been created to provide students with a view into the world of tourism. Throughout the day the team will share what they do and will also give those taking part the opportunity to get involved in a group challenge.
