CWT around the world
The first office at the Dam Square in Amsterdam opened in 1927 and soon more agencies located throughout the Netherlands opened their doors. At first all agencies handled both business and leisure travel. As the market changed the management team decided in the early 1990s to focus more on all aspects of business travel.
CWT’s salary and benefits are competitive. We pride ourselves on creating a good, informal atmosphere where people have the chance to develop themselves and where the balance between work and home is important.
At CWT, you can ask for more flexible working hours. Together with your manager, the needs of your department are considered alongside what is convenient for you and a decision will be made.
Public Transportation is fully reimbursed. For commuting by car a compensation scheme applies, starting at 10 km one-way/single journey.
CWT offers a “cafeteria model”: a basic package with some additional options that you can choose to suit your own needs. For instance, you can “buy” extra holidays or trade in unused holiday time for extra salary (40 hours for a full-time employment). You can also use your salary or holidays to pay for a bike through our CWT bike scheme.
CWT employees benefit from a range of useful discounts including attractive discounts on private travel.
CWT Netherlands won the 2010 Telework Year Award for our Work @Home program.
CWT Netherlands is the travel industry leader in offering home working. Since 2008, employees have been able to work from home for some of the working week.
Work @Home employees work partly from home, where a professional workplace is set up according to the health & safety regulations. By using the latest technologies, you are part of a virtual team and can remain close to your colleagues while working from home.
Work @Home is very successful and valued by CWT employees for the flexibility it offers them and the opportunity to create a better work-life balance.
We provide individual learning paths for employees to further expand their skills. We invest in training & development both for your current job and also to prepare you for future positions.
Depending on personal career goals, a junior business travel counselor can, for example, progress to a senior business travel counselor or team leader, with the help of our Training & Development department and through personal coaching.
In your personal development plan you have also the opportunity to discover and develop skills that will allow you to consider other positions such as Program Management, Sales, and Business Support functions within Europe.
