Join our Team
Do you share our passion for tailor-made travel throughout Scotland, Ireland, England & Wales? Read on for fantastic opportunities to join our team.
McKinlay Kidd is a multiple award-winning domestic travel business. Established for nearly 20 years, we offer special-experience and tailor-made holidays throughout Scotland, Ireland, England & Wales, from road trips to small group rail tours. We have always had a strong track record in delivering fantastic trips for domestic holidaymakers, so experienced a busy 2021 season. We are looking ahead to a positive future based on existing local business and the return of inbound international customers.
We pride ourselves on personal service, with a strong focus on customer satisfaction. The company is on a firm financial footing and is ambitious to continue to grow in the coming years, offering plenty of opportunity to develop your skills and knowledge and take on more responsibility within a friendly and supportive team.
We intend to maintain a small office in Glasgow City Centre where most of the team will be based full-time. Please advise on applying if you wish to work remotely. We will consider this in particular circumstances, especially related to destination and sales knowledge outside of Scotland.
The Role: Travel Advisor at McKinlay Kidd
We are always on the look-out for reliable, calm and professional people to join our dedicated sales team on a full-time basis.
You believe that a holiday in the UK and Ireland can be just as good as one abroad. You are likely to have good knowledge of the geography of Scotland – and potentially England, Wales and Ireland.
While experience in tailor-made travel sales is an advantage, we recruit primarily on attitude and aptitude. This role may suit a recent graduate or returner who is keen to learn and develop their skills.
Ideal candidates have natural sales skills, a strong customer service focus, excellent attention to detail in both literacy and numeracy, and relish the challenge of working as part of a passionate team. You will be a skilled communicator, computer literate and a fast learner.
The core team is based in our office in central Glasgow. We will consider remote-working for experienced candidates with specific destination knowledge. We may be able to accommodate flexible working hours, depending on the role. Occasional evening and weekend working is likely to be required at peak times.
To find out more or to apply speculatively, please email Zoe Davidson, General Manager, [email protected], explaining what attracts you to working for McKinlay Kidd and describing your favourite place in the UK or Ireland.
