Africa Odyssey is a specialist tour operator organising trips to Eastern and Southern Africa. We are always looking to recruit talented graduates with a passion for travel as well as experienced travel sales consultants and managers.
We are currently looking for an Africa Travel Consultant, either with or without experience of working in the travel industry but ideally with experience in sales. We offer full training in our offices in Putney as well as an extensive educational trip to East Africa initially, over time picking up new destinations with more educational trips.
The main responsibility of this role would be tailor-making itineraries and driving sales but the role is very varied and you will be expected to get involved in website, advertising, PR, administration, accounts and marketing.
Over the years the majority of our staff have started their careers at Tanzania Odyssey as an intern. We are always looking out for talented people who have a passion for Africa and are looking to start a career in luxury travel.
The ideal intern candidate would be a recent graduate with good A Levels, attention to detail, the ability to work with urgency and accuracy and a passion for Africa. The role is on a monthly rolling basis and the intern would work on all aspects of the business, including website, advertising, PR, administration and accounts as well as learning about the booking process and tailor-making trips to Africa.
