Do you want to talk about skiing and snowboarding all day every day?  If you can't get out to the Alps for the season, then the second best thing is to think and talk skiing and to have the power to create amazing holidays for others.  Each year we recruit a number of seasonal sales consultants to strengthen our team for the busy winter season, working at our lovely offices on Turkey Mill in Maidstone, Kent.   

The job involves dealing with all the guest requirements before their holiday - from answering their original enquiry and talking them through our chalets and the best options for their group, to booking their travel arrangements, ski passes, equipment rental and ski schools.  Every guest has his/her own set of personal questions and your job is to create a holiday, personal to them, in an efficient and friendly way.

The ideal candidate will love the snow and be passionate about skiing or snowboarding - you must know what you are talking about be able to carry out this role.  You will have an excellent telephone manner and writing skills, a bubbly personality, be confident and believe in the excellence of customer service.

The positions are based on a seasonal fixed term contract - initially for three months from October to December with an extension offered until the end of March depending on your performance and the requirements of the business.  From the middle of October onwards, you will work on a shift rota to cover the office opening hours from 9am to 9pm during the week and 10am to 5pm at weekends.  This will usually mean working one evening a week (when you start at lunchtime) and 4-5 weekends during the season when you will be given compensating days off the following week.

Our offices are located on the prestigious Turkey Mill Business Park which has it's own childcare/nursery, bistro, private dentist, event and wedding venue and beautiful gardens for breaks.  It is easily accessed by road from the motorway and also by public transport (bus and trains).
