Join The Team

As we are growing, we need your support to keep our pillars of strength intact. We at Plan the Unplanned are hiring for multiple roles.

But first, let us tell you who we are…

Plan the Unplanned is a pioneer in organising treks and trips across India. Ever since Jatin and Tarun ignited the idea of building the best trekking and travelling organization in India, we have put travellers at the centre stage of everything.   

Our vision is to create a family of like-minded people who might start as strangers but end up being part of this one big-travel-family. We bring back satisfaction by indulging with communities, unearthing cultures, meeting people, grasping stories, witnessing architecture, and snapping pictures. 

Our motive is to reduce the efforts that go into planning: you no more need to wait for your groups to say yes; you no more spend dozens of minutes looking for hotels; you no more contact people for the best places; you no more waste effort looking for the commute. Norms are changing. Most of you travel hassle-free.

The whole experience is not just limited to visiting places; we educate our travellers about sustainable living and local cultures, which makes us unique. Our dedication to giving the best to our travellers has got us “the Traveller’s Choice Awards” for three consecutive years – 2019, 2020 and 2021.

Our company started to fulfil dreams from Weekend Getaways in Bangalore, but our family members’ immense support and demand let us branch out to other parts of India, including the Himalayas, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and the North-Eastern States. Over 50,000 people have entrusted us and have made us the fastest-growing travel agency in India. Any new idea comes alive at Plan the Unplanned. We conduct all kinds of activities, including treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, and photo walks.

What does it mean to work with Plan the Unplanned?

Working with Plan the Unplanned is always a lovely experience. We have an open culture here. No idea goes unnoticed. If there is any new project or idea in your mind, you can fearlessly discuss it with the team. We always test the concept before judging it because that is how we come to know its feasibility and use. 

As an example, that’s how we came across our campaign Humans Who Trek, where we highlight powerful real stories of trekkers. This motivates others. That is also a part of our motive: Making you healthy and letting you meet new people on treks.

Similarly, our programme for cleaning up many sites in Karnataka took shape. Some treks like Kodachadri, Kudremukh, and Tadiandamol have strict rules where one needs to register the plastic carried. Everyone is expected to bring back the plastic they take on treks without littering the mountains. Unfortunately, places like Kodachadri – which are also accessible by jeep (thus, making it challenging to account for the amount of plastic carried to the peak) – are being tainted and polluted with many kilograms of rubbish on an average weekend. One of the trekkers brought to our notice about a massive pile of garbage near the Mookambika temple in Kodachadri. The place needed help, and it was time to take matters into our own hands. If not us, who will step forward to rescue our divine nature?  

On this thought, one of Plan the Unplanned’s fellow trek leaders, Abhiram, with his friend Adith, took the initiative of the cleanup drive. But only two were not enough to finish the job. Our team circulated a message on social media groups, asking people to join us in this initiative. With the support of our vast social media family, multiple people came forward. Needless to say, the cleanup drive was a huge success.

Plus, we never bind you with us. You are free to explore your preferable projects. You can work in other companies, except travel organisations, and keep building yourself up.

We abide by these Values…

Our co-founder, Jatin, used to visit the farthest corners and offbeat places during exploration trips. While curating places, arranging homestays, and managing timetables, he has built ‘Plan the Unplanned’ with immense love and professionalism. Journey of Plan the Unplanned might be full of tricky turns, but Jatin made sure we followed some basic guidelines. Here they are.

  1. The first and foremost priority must be that the self-confidence of trekkers and travellers is not adversely affected due to any of the activities.
  2. There should always be scope for provoking the thought process at any point possible. We must push our customers to come out of the wall of strangeness and open up in the world. 
  3. Travellers, especially women, trust us for professionalism. We never allow people to drink alcohol on treks or use obscene language. Any incident against this is strictly looked upon, and action is taken.
  4. Plan the Unplanned is not just a business for us. It is a way to tap into the lifestyle of people, teach them healthy living practices and improve their imagination.
  5. Feedback is our food. Every weekend is a learning experience for us. When you return, we take detailed feedback from our outdoor leaders, list things that need improvement and work on those. 
  6. Our prices are traveller-friendly. We keep a small portion for our efforts, and the rest goes into managing, maintaining and nurturing local communities. 
  7. Our adventure does not end with a trip. Our groups remain active. Plus, we conduct meetup sessions for trekkers to feel a sense of belonging. 

We hope all the above-written information will come in handy while applying with us. Hoping to see your application soon. All the Best.
