Our IDEAL candidate:

*Would have between 2 - 5 years' experience of working in a successful independent retail travel agency* dealing with clients both face to face plus via email and phone.

*Have the manner, temperament and eloquence to be able to connect and converse with the clients in order to close the sale, plus be able to work both independently and as part of a team.
*Passion for travel and to have travelled extensively, and keen to travel further.
*Desire to learn and improve knowledge.
*Experience of retail sales with one of the multiple high street travel agencies along with experience from a well-known tour operator (not just call centre or internet based operator selling set products)
