We are seeking a Travel Consultant with Tour Operations experience, who is a builder of rapport with customers and uses their relationship skills to sell.

Salary is circa £27k - £30k pa plus benefits and this role can be office based in Glasgow, hybrid, or fully remote.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

  • Use your excellent knowledge of the geography of Scotland - and ideally also England, Wales and Ireland - and be passionate about encouraging visitors from home and overseas to explore beyond-the-beaten track
  • You'll believe a holiday in the UK/ Ireland can be just as good as one abroad.
  • This is a full-time position, based on a 37.5 hour working week within our Mon to Sat office opening hours.
  • Occasional overtime may be necessary at peak times. Once experienced, you will also take your turn to cover the 24/7 duty rota for customers on holiday.

THE PACKAGE:

Starting salary is up to £30k dependent on experience and there is an additional company bonus, plus facilitate experiencing their tours and itineraries. This role can be office based/hybrid in Glasgow but there is potential to consider fully remote dependent on the candidates experience.

EXPERIENCE REQUIRED:
