Senior Africa Consultant Full time. Excellent Salary. Glos/Oxon Border
The Explorations Company, long-established leaders in creating unique travel experiences, seek a very experienced Africa Consultant to layer value and weight within our close-knit and highly knowledgeable sales consultancy team.
As well as an immersive knowledge of exceptionally individually-tailored sub-Saharan African travel, both on and off the beaten track, the successful candidate will be motivated by the essential nature of his or her work and will be driven, crucially, by an intrinsic love of Africa. He or she will be aware of the latest developments within the hospitality industry as it applies to Africa as well as being a wonderful verbal and written communicator and, at least, ably numerate. Considerable time spent actually living (or working) in Africa would be very desirable as would a keen practical appreciation of the continent’s cultures and current conservation issues.
This is a highly important sales role with some commensurate marketing and background input that will suit a candidate whose interests are truly driven by Africa’s joys and challenges and who can bring that flair and passion to a sales consultancy role.
Availability to travel, sometimes at short notice, to African and other destinations is a prerequisite.
Working with us means an opportunity to make a real and fulfilling difference both to the lives of our clients (and their families) and also to the people and wildlife in the destinations we work with. Not only do we create superb, unique and life-changing experiences on behalf of our global client base but our philanthropic involvement, already well established, will continue to grow exponentially.
Interested candidates who can fully connect with this challenging, yet very fulfilling, role are warmly invited to apply. Very experienced candidates who are currently resident outside the United Kingdom may be considered. A full CV and a supporting list of destinations and places visited, with background notes if applicable, should be sent (marked “Private and Confidential”) to Sue Bailey, HR Manager, either by email or in hard copy:
Hard Copy: The Explorations Company, Fraser House, Southrop, GL7 3NR
All applications will be treated in the strictest confidence.
