Job Role Summary

CLOSING DATE: 8TH JULY 2019

As a Neilson team member, you will be based at The Snow Centre. You will be the first point of call for guests who are looking for expert advice and guidance before booking a Neilson ski or snowboard holiday.


The Sales Centre is on the front line of everything we do. Although you will need to work hard, there will always be plenty of incentives to keep you focused, genuine job satisfaction to be gained and you will always be well rewarded for achieving your results.
 
Individuals stepping into this role need to be target driven, have a natural sales ability and a real passion for providing exceptional customer service, making every customer feel highly valued in order to convert initial enquiries into confirmed bookings.
 
You will always provide a friendly, efficient and professional service that will ensure Neilson’s excellent reputation is maintained and sales/service targets are achieved.
 
There will be lots to learn and your product training will be ongoing, with great opportunities to visit our resorts. If you are a natural communicator that enjoys the buzz of working in a lively and hardworking sales team, this could be the job for you!
