Sales Consultant

London (HYBRID) 25K Permanent

Our client? We were chuffed when this family run business decided to join our books not long ago for their first hire and business is booming so they are back for more! The owners are genuinely two of the nicest humans in the industry and we love it when businesses such as this thrive. 

Since launching their business in 2012, our clients have managed to achieve a global reach, whilst maintaining the values and ethos with which the company was founded upon. They offer over 1200 hand picked luxury properties to rent worldwide as well as concierge services and even offer an entire island retreat for their clients! 

The Opportunity: Luxury Travel Sales Consultant

You'll be selling trips ranging from the Greek Islands all the way to New Zealand, but in particular European city apartments and villa rentals. You will be provided with training on the job.
