We are looking for a Travel Consultant & Marketing Executive, who is passionate about ethical and meaningful travel. This is your dream job if you want to make a positive impact on Africa’s wildlife every working day! The perfect candidate will be enthusiastic about wildlife and conservation, as well as venturing beyond their sales path into assisting the team with a range of tasks. If this sounds like your dream career, then read on…
As our company grows, we’re seeing more people than ever getting in touch with us from all four corners of the globe. Based in our office, your main goal will be to grow our international sales by speaking with people around the world using phone and video conferencing technology. With life-changing experiences on offer, there’s no cold calling or need to hard sell. Instead, you’ll take a confident and consultative approach, helping each traveller plan, book and realise the ideal trip for their dreams and ambitions.
Working as part of the sales and marketing team, you’ll also provide first-rate after-sales support and assist with a variety of marketing activities, from speaking at live events to posting on our social media channels.
Our training programme will enable you to help travellers plan a trip that perfectly suits their conservation aspirations. It will also provide you with our environmental and conservation insights. In addition to being the trusted conservation guide for prospective individual or groups of travellers, the ideal candidate could step up and expand their role - taking up the mantle of our social media guru, or becoming the face of African Conservation Experience at events and talks.
Combining your knowledge of our life-changing projects with the environmental and conservation expertise that you’ll develop, you’ll excite travellers with an in-depth insight into what to expect when travelling, whilst providing the reassurance of the African Conservation Experience brand.
You’ll work 5-days a week (40 hours). As we are speaking to people from all over the world, our opening hours are 8:30 am to 8:15 pm Monday to Friday. You will work 2 or 3 days a week 8.30 am to 5.30 pm and the other days 11.15 am to 8.15 pm.
We’re a small company but are constantly expanding and have big ambitions for the future. We are looking for entrepreneurial team members who can develop and shape this new role within the company.
Founded in 1999, we are southern Africa’s original conservation travel company. Headquartered in the UK with full-time teams on the ground in South Africa, we play an active role in creating a brighter future for Africa’s wildlife through organising conservation travel experiences. We do this by embedding ourselves in the region’s conservation community, providing equipment, money and guidance to projects and even pioneering our own where needed. This conservation-first approach makes us a different breed to online booking agents. It’s also one of the many reasons why thousands of people around the world have enjoyed an unforgettable experience travelling with us.
