Careers at Real Gap Experience

Want to know more about Team Real Gap Experience?


The Office

We've recently moved from the seaside city of Brighton to beautiful Tunbridge Wells. Located right above Pret (how convenient!) we're within a short hop, skip and a jump away from the centre of town. 

Our address: Real Gap Experience, 2nd Floor, 121-123 Mount Pleasant Road, Tunbridge Wells, TN1 1QR

Real Training & Development

We're a little bit biased, but we reckon that we've got one of the best teams, ever. We're all really friendly, so after an introduction to the rest of the team you're sure to feel right at home right away! You'll undergo a training programme so you'll be aware of all of our product, as well as the programmes we use daily in house. There's always room for development and progression within the company too, so there's no limits as to where you could end up!

Real Benefits

We offer fab salaries, a good commission scheme for sales staff, team social events and great overseas travel opportunities (woop!).

You will be the classic ‘self-starter’ and should have some examples of content (design / photography / copywriting etc) that you can show us.

Personal requirements:

  • Curious – both creatively and analytically (we’re not simply about posting pretty pictures, you’ll need to dig into the numbers too)
  • Takes ownership
  • Thinks differently – you’ll want to understand our audience’s psychology and the deeper reasons behind their purchasing decision

  • Be able to write compelling short-form copy

  • Social Media Management

  • Substantial experience in paid search management
  • Have utilised some degree of PPC automation
  • Strong understanding of tracking and attribution
  • Experience of drawing on multiple data sources (not just GA) in order to make decisions
  • Strong user of excel, potentially BI tools (or have an interest in learning them)
  • Ability to work flexibly, on own initiative and as part of the team
  • Leadership qualities - whilst you will not be managing a team you need the ability, confidence and analytical rigour to dictate where we utilise our resource (potentially across multiple digital marketing channels)
  • Wider marketing and strategic understanding (not necessarily formal, but you need to understand generally what ‘good marketing’ in 2019 is)
  • Pro-active in developing knowledge and experience


  • Exposure to companies with a high volume of touchpoints and medium > long term sales cycle
