Current Vacancy - Adventure Travel Sales Role

Listed: 15 December 2022

Full-time salaried position working office hours Monday to Friday

Are you an excellent listener who likes to find out what makes people tick?
Do you love talking about travel and New Zealand?
Do you like to win...but you don’t get knocked down if you don’t?

If this sounds like you then you might just be the newest member of New Zealand Trails’ adventure travel sales team. This isn’t “sales” in the traditional sense, you’ll be part of a tight team, building relationships with people from all over the world and helping them plan their New Zealand adventure. You don’t need to know tourism or sales, you do need to be people-savvy, a great listener and written communicator, and happy to pick up the phone and chat with people! We’re open to hiring an experienced salesperson or a complete novice for this job. If you're hungry to learn and driven to be the best (but are still humble), we'll teach you everything you need to know to hit the ground running. The sky’s the limit when it comes to your success!

This is a full-time working Monday to Friday with the opportunity of a 4.5 day work week (work your 40 hours over 4.5 days instead of five and finish at lunchtime on Fridays).  T

Listed: 19 December 2022

Full-time or part-time salaried position working office hours Monday to Friday

Never heard of an Email Sales Assistant job? We’re not surprised! This role is one that is quite specific to New Zealand Trails’ way of doing sales. It’s not “sales” in the traditional sense, you’ll be part of a tight team, building relationships with people from all over the world using email as your primary means of communicating. If you've never done sales before, no worries! As long as you're hungry to learn, we'll teach you everything you need to know to succeed in the role. 

A typical day will include:

  • Chatting with people via email, getting to know what makes them tick, and using our sales techniques and systems to get them booked on a trip with us. If you're happy to chat with guests on the phone then that would be awesome too!
  • Working closely with our New Zealand phone sales expert and the rest of our sales team to get sales across the line. We sell as a team, we celebrate as a team!
  • Working efficiently and quickly through your task list and updating our CRM system as you go - taking initiative, having attention to detail and the ability to juggle multiple balls at once are key.
  • Looking for opportunities to improve our website, marketing material, and sales systems.
  • Manning our live chat.

This is a rewarding job and you will see the direct results of your hard work when the sales come through.
