If the extended cold spell in Europe is starting to get to you, perhaps we can offer you a solution?
Our client, a formidable player in the Inbound Tourism sector in the African region, based in sunny Cape Town, has an opportunity not to be missed. Currently recruiting for a team of fluent German speaking Travel Consultants who will service their German clientele enquiring about travel to Africa, this is an amazing opportunity to establish yourself in a supportive, progressive environment, and a beautiful location too.

This is what you would do:

  • create and sell tailor-made itineraries to international and German travellers.
  • sell locations based in Southern Africa, then later East Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands
  • follow up on new enquiries from the company website and toll free lines
  • generate repeat and referral enquiries through exceptional customer relationship management

And this is how we’ll keep you happy while you do it:

  • Highly competitive, above market related salaries, including attractive commission structures
  • Support from Human Resources as you go through the critical skills visa process
  • Training and support to achieve your personal and professional goals
  • Educationals and ongoing supplier training to ensure you know your product/ markets
  • A young, fun environment, full of professionals who love what they do, are passionate about not only selling the region, but also offering their clients the very best Africa has to offer
  • Amazing work/ life balance which is supported and fought for, with free breakfasts at work, lunch, First Friday Drinks, quarterly wellness days, incentives, competitions, vouchers, etc.
  • A city with a strong expat community
  • Seeing Table Mountain, one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, from your office every day
  • Ending your work day with a short walk to some of the trendiest restaurants and eateries in the whole of South Africa
  • Average temperatures in the summer months in excess of 80°F, and a very manageable 60°F in winter!
  • Summer days with 11 hours of sunshine – imagine what you can do with all that daylight!

This is what we need you to have:

  • Fluency in German (essential)
  • Authority in South African Safari travel (5+ years expertise selling South African destinations)
  • Travel experience internationally, including to Southern / East Africa / Indian Ocean Islands (advantageous)
  • Experience using CRM systems
  • New product development
  • E-marketing and Social Media (advantageous)
