Camps International is seeking multiple enthusiastic and skilled Expedition Coordinators with field sales skills to join our unique and ethical expedition company. This varied and exciting role will involve new and repeat business development in secondary schools within your region and the surrounding counties.
Camps International – we do great stuff!
In a nutshell, we provide amazing opportunities for school and gap year students through our volunteer programs in Africa, Asia, South and Central America.
Our business not only allows us to provide often life changing *experiences to our students (*their words, not ours!), but the positive impact we make on the communities and environment means the more successful we are, the greater the positive impact on the area we operate in. Our guys tell us this makes for a much happier Monday morning feeling!!
So – what does the role look like?
It’s a varied role where you will be required to pick up the phone and book new appointments with schools and conduct a number of sales presentations with teachers, students and their parents, whilst working to an individual and team target. Make no mistake, this role may require lengthy drives to various parts of the country and can mean occasionally staying away from home, but this is a rare, ethical, sales role!
We’re a team here at Camps so you’ll also need to ‘muck in’ as and when needed to support other teams– and why, because they will for you! It’s that kind of place.
We are looking for a real “people-person”, with a passion for travel and who is also target-driven with excellent sales skills. You will need to embrace the Camps ethos and working culture to successfully offer our expedition experiences to new schools whilst delivering an excellent standard of support to those already travelling with us.
We are also looking for individuals who tick the following boxes:
- Commitment to operate with passion, drive and integrity – these are our company values and the basis on which all Camps staff conduct themselves
- Proven sales experience – ideally in the travel sector/ field sales, or face to face sales experience ideal
- Travel industry experience or a passion for travel
- Results orientation
- Excellent presentation skills, with the self-confidence and passion to present in assemblies and parents presentations.
- Self driven with the capacity to work with limited supervision
- Superb communication skills – telephone manner, written proposals and presentation skills
- Capacity to adjust your style according to your audience
- Excellent negotiation and liaison skills
- Computer proficient (we work on Macs!) and Microsoft Office proficient
- Full driving licence essential
- Teamwork – we didn’t just add this in as a nice to have – at Camps we really do value our team culture and ethos
Camps International values passion, drive and integrity – do you?
