Cruise Sales Consultant – Glasgow
Our client, an ‘award winning’ independent travel company, is currently looking to recruit a number of experienced cruise sales consultants to join their well established cruise team in their busy office in central Glasgow.
As a cruise sales consultant you will handle calls & travel requests from direct customers within a busy travel office, and primarily book cruise holidays with various tour operators across the UK. Working for an independent travel company, you will also have the ability to de-package a standard cruise holiday, and tailor-make a specific travel itinerary to match the exact requirements of your customer. You will provide excellent destination & product knowledge to all customers, and help generate marketing campaigns for the team, highlighting any special offers and discounts available to your customers. You will also be required to maximise the sale of a booking through the promotion of various ancillary products.
As a cruise sales consultant you will have a number of years experience working in a similar cruise consultant or travel sales consultant role (in a travel call centre or retail travel agency), and have a good understanding of the UK cruise market. You will have a real passion for booking cruise holidays, and have previous experience tailor-making independent travel itineraries with flights, cruises and various ancillary products. You will be extremely sales & target driven, and have the ability to up-sell ancillary products to help maximise the revenue & profit on each booking. You will also be very PC literate, and ideally have a good working knowledge of various cruise-specific booking systems (although training will be provided).
Salary & Benefits
Great basic salary on offer for the right cruise sales consultant, along with a good commission structure and great on target earnings. You will also benefit from some great company benefits such as travel discounts & incentives, and a 4 weeks induction training course before starting your new role.
Hours of work are very sociable Monday to Sunday (5 days), with weekend days & early evening shifts worked on a rota basis with days off in lieu through the week.
