- dealing with changes and updates to bookings;
- collating and sending out customer travel documents.
You’ll have excellent attention to detail and a careful, thorough approach to work. A good telephone manner is required as we spend a lot of time on the phone talking with our customers. You must be a good team worker and have strong time management skills. A passion for skiing, snowboarding or cycling and for travel in general would be very advantageous!
