As part of our continued growth plans we are seeking a committed, focussed and professional Sales Advisor to join our small and dedicated team in an entrepreneurial environment.
The Role – Travel Sales Advisor:
You will be responsible for responding to enquiries and converting them into tailor-made holidays. You will listen and respond to the customer’s needs then recommend and organise everything from accommodation to activities to travel in order to create a unique holiday experience, working in partnership with local businesses who share our commitment to quality and customer service. This is a full-time, permanent position.
The ideal Travel Sales Advisor will have a strong customer service focus, excellent attention to detail in both literacy and numeracy, and relish the challenge of working in a fast-paced environment, responding well to meeting targets.
