Diversity and Inclusion

At loveholidays, our ambition is to be a destination for all to thrive – by creating an inclusive working environment where we build belonging for our people, customers and communities across the world.

Our DEI approach is based around 4 pillars:

Belonging for all: We are continuously evolving an inclusive culture, where people have equitable access to opportunities to thrive and be themselves at work.

Behavioural capability: We build knowledge of practices that support our workforce to foster inclusion.

Balanced representation: We develop our pipeline of diverse talent with a focus on hiring and encouraging balanced representation across all teams and seniority levels.

Brilliant leadership: We strengthen our leaders with skills and practices that create psychological safety in teams so everyone’s voice is heard.

At loveholidays, we celebrate our diverse cultures and nationalities by championing our Employee Networks and hosting an array of engaging events, workshops and webinars throughout the year.

MIssion and Values

At loveholidays, we’re on a mission to open the world to everyone, giving our customers unlimited choice, unmatched ease and unmissable value for their next holiday.

We’re now the third-largest ATOL holder in the UK and believe our culture has played an integral part in our success, and, more importantly, kept our employees happy and thriving within their roles.

We live by our People Promise, which are a set of commitments built around 4 key pillars – purpose, autonomy, growth and collaboration. These commitments act as a promise between loveholidays and our employees, outlining what we expect and what we pledge in return.

Our guiding principles tell you more about our culture:

We are entrepreneurs

We’re proudly commercial – we do more with less, we own the decisions we make and the actions we take. We’re execution and outcomes focused. We act on new ideas, gather insights and back the winners. Being commercial starts with the customer.

Everything is written in pencil

Adaptability is key to maintaining speed. The bigger we get, the smaller we act, so we constantly change the way we organise our work. We recognise that we need to respond to change rather than following a rigid plan.

We organise for speed

Small, flat teams allow us to move quickly when we can and should. It mandates the fast exchange of ideas, ensuring effective prioritisation and efficient delivery.

We believe in team

We’re all in it together. We value diverse thinking, embrace a growth mindset and actively help those around us to get better. We make loveholidays an inclusive, great place to work – where people work hard and enjoy the journey.

Meet some of our Team

Vanessa Heron-Hua - Data Engineer

Working at loveholidays during the early stages of my career, surrounded by engineers with decades of experience has been a really transformative experience; I've noticeably improved all my key technical skills in a really short space of time and my ideas for improvements are taken seriously. I know my contributions are appreciated and that whenever I need assistance, I can ask my colleagues to lend a hand and explain things.

Chloe Cavanah - Product Manager

Joining loveholidays has been a rewarding experience. My team, peers, manager, and leaders offer incredible support - enabling me to learn and grow, whilst also challenging me to think in new ways. The emphasis on the customer and the technology behind it guides our decision-making and ensures that we understand and solve their problems in the right way - making sure that they have a stress-free holiday. Plus, we have fun whilst doing so!

Xinran Jiao – Data Analyst

I work in the Data Analytics Team and I really enjoy the collaborative and supportive working environment. My teammates genuinely care about each other and everyone is willing to offer help.

Being part of loveholidays means being part of a global family. Our colleagues are from all over the world and, as an ethnic minority and non-native speaker, the company's inclusive culture makes me feel not just welcome, but truly valued. I really enjoy working at loveholidays and I feel very lucky to be here.
