This is an exciting opportunity to combine a passion for wildlife and the natural world with a rewarding position at a market-leading wildlife tour operator. We are looking for an energetic, well-travelled wildlife expert to join our Naturetrek Tailormade team (at our Mingledown Barn office, near Alton, Hampshire) to market, design and sell unique wildlife experiences to those clients of ours who prefer not to travel as part of a group. In addition the successful applicant will be asked to actively improve and develop our holiday product by visiting and researching new regions each year. The role will include the packaging of such new destinations and, more importantly, all aspects of both the organisation and operation of Naturetrek Tailormade itineraries to both these new, and existing, Naturetrek destinations. As well as being a keen naturalist, and having wide-ranging travel experience, the successful applicant will require meticulous administration skills, attention to detail, accuracy, common sense, good literacy and numeracy skills, a confident telephone manner, motivation within a busy office, and a natural ability for flexibility and negotiation. Computer competence and skills are also essential. Previous travel trade experience is preferred, but is not essential.
When not occasionally researching destinations, the role will be mostly office-based, offering advice to Naturetrek clients, using both phone and email, dealing with hotels, airlines, local ground operators, guides and other suppliers.
A competitive remuneration package (plus pension contributions), commensurate with experience, is offered. You will also have the advantage of occasional discounted holidays offered by our suppliers and tourist boards.
