Out of Hours Homeworking Business Travel Consultant
Our client, a well-established & highly reputable business & marine travel agency, is currently looking to recruit an experienced business travel consultant to join their expanding ‘out of hours’ homeworking team, and handle all travel arrangements for clients on a portfolio of business & marine travel accounts.
As a ‘homeworking’ business travel consultant you will be required to book all travel arrangements for clients on a portfolio of business & marine travel accounts, and make reservations for complex travel itineraries with International & domestic scheduled flights, hotel accomodation, car hire, transfers, rail & ferry travel. Working for a fast-paced & forward thinking travel company you will act as a first point of contact for all business travel queries, and handle any problems, issues or booking amendments in a professional & efficient manner. You will deal with all operational duties as required (to include airfares & ticketing), and have the ability to advise your clients on general practice, whilst adhering to a pre-agreed service level agreement.
As a ‘homeworking’ business travel consultant you will have extensive experience working for a similar UK based business travel agency, and have proven experience tailor-making complex travel itineraries with scheduled flights and various ground products (to include hotels, car hire & rail travel).

You will be very PC literate, have great attention to details, and have the ability to work to tight deadlines on a daily basis. A good working on the Amadeus booking system would also prove an advantage; however cross-training from another GDS such as Galileo or Sabre may be available. Previous experience working in a similar ‘homeworking’ role (especially working out of hours) is also desirable, but not essential.
