What’s the Role?

As a Travel Sales Specialist you’ll be the point of contact for the entire customer journey and therefore the face of the company; from building their perfect trip based on their travel wishlist to liaising with our local partners, to keeping in touch with the customer from the time they book to when they return from their holiday.

You’ll be able to identify the customer’s wants & needs and come up with exciting & realistic solutions. You’ll be accountable for delivering your personal and company targets. You’ll be able to think commercially and proactively seek opportunities to create improvements for the growth of yourself and your destinations.

Our Travel Sales Specialists take ownership of managing their own destination and personal performance, using your initiative to find solutions and contribute towards a positive team dynamic. You’ll also work alongside the rest of the team to develop the destination, develop the product, share your insights on competition and client feedback, whilst having the opportunity to contribute directly to website and marketing content. Plus, have your say in helping to grow and develop the business. Not just your average sales role, eh?

This is a 4 or 5 day per week role with 2 days from our office in Brighton.

What have you got?

  • You’ve travelled to 3 or more of our destinations and you can’t wait to inspire others with your knowledge
  • You’ve got a proven track record of exceeding sales targets in a customer-focused environment.
  • You know that a sales environment needs resilience and you’re not afraid to be brave, change things up and push yourself out of your comfort zone.
  • You have a genuine understanding of what providing exceptional customer service requires
  • You’ve got excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • You’re good at multi-tasking, prioritising and working smarter.
  • You’ve got bags of enthusiasm, even on a Monday.
  • You are driven to succeed, develop, grow and believe in why you do what you do.

What’s in it for you?

  • A highly competitive salary circa £30k
  • Annual company performance-based bonus
  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays
  • Company pension scheme
  • Healthcare Cashplan scheme
  • Educational business trips to our destinations
