Are you independently-minded with great organisational skills?
Do you love the idea of beautiful villas in some of the world's most glamorous destinations?
We are looking for a dynamic and intelligent Operations Executive to join our fast-paced and fast-growing villas team, based in the Cotswolds.
Red Savannah is a multi-award winning luxury travel company and winner of Condé Nast Traveller’s 2021 World’s Best Tour Operator award.
The Red Savannah brand shines because of the people we employ. We have a specific brand DNA that requires team members to be confident, sophisticated self-starters, independent thinkers with excellent social skills and a well-developed sense of humour. We deal with many high net worth clients and celebrities and are therefore deadly serious about what we do - but we try and have fun doing it and there is a terrific team spirit across the business.
The Operations Executive role is primarily to support the sales process, taking over at a critical stage and arranging all of the services that will turn the villa rental from an ordinary holiday, to an extraordinary holiday.
The role itself requires an ability to think proactively under pressure, be able to adapt to fast-moving and dynamic situations on the ground and above all, to empathise with each client's individual needs.
The successful candidate will also be dealing with villa owners (often European) and other suppliers on the ground and thus an ability to speak a foreign European language often makes a significant difference in terms of completing a task successfully. However, foreign language skills are not a pre-condition to securing this role.
Candidates that show real sales aptitude will also be taught to sell and ultimately, may be able to join the sales team.
This is an exciting role and will suit either a recent graduate, or a seasoned travel specialist.
We are also not committed to employing graduates only.....those who have not gone to university will be equally considered provided they have earned the equivalent of a degree in 'life' - eg. doing something interesting whether educational, business orientated or philanthropic.
Our aim is always to offer an excellent career to the right candidates. The role is full time and is based in the thriving Georgian Spa town of Cheltenham (fast becoming the cyber capital of the UK). Currently team members work in our large, open plan office on Tuesday-Thursday, and from home on Monday & Friday.
