45 views • 1 month ago

This is a full time, salaried role and ideal for a candidate who has a client handling+ an administrative background, preferably within the Travel Industry. This is an entry-level role into the luxury travel business and a perfect fit for someone who is eager and ready to learn and grown in a new industry.

We are a Virtuoso luxury travel agency based in NYC. The position requires someone who is detail-oriented, well-spoken, well-written, well-organized and performs best under pressure. Extra preference will be given for those with SABRE experience. Preference will also be given if you have experience working with a luxury market/clientele.

This role does come with health benefits. Work is weekdays (never weekends) and between the hours of 10 AM and 6 PM Eastern during which you make yourself available to the agency founder/manager and his team. You will not be asked to work outside of these times however you will need to be available during these week day hours. We are based in New York City however you can work remotely for this position, provided you are US based.

Specifics of compensation will be discussed in your interviews however the general specs are as follows:
Salary Range: $45,000-$50,000 a year
Commission: No max but expect $5-$10,000 a year on top of the salary.

Note that the primary focus of this role is not travel sales nor will travel be required, but you will be virtually surrounded by our team and discussing/handling travel 24/7!

The Fine Print:

You must be incredibly detail-oriented and well written; in our industry, an error in dates or a name mis-spelled will cause huge problems. You also excel in client management in order to be able to deal with our high-level clientele. Our team is young, dynamic, hard-working, and fun; all are remote and communicate mainly via Slack. You must also be a hard-worker, committed to the long-term goal, and incredibly well versed at multi-tasking and prioritization.

You can take direction but also be self-sufficient when assigned tasks. Your daily tasks include some clerical duties, social media posts (Instagram), scheduling/calendar management, CRM/accounting entry/invoicing, itinerary creation, hotel research/quote creation, responding to and following up with house clients via emails, working on putting together proposals, air quoting, charging credit cards, calling hotels and excel.

Secondary Role: Learning to become a Travel Advisor:

As a natural dividend of this primary job, you will learn the skills required to become a Luxury Travel Advisor. This is secondary to your primary role and will be based upon commissionable sales and your ability to build a client base. As you work in the primary role, you will be training and working towards learning the industry. You will be taught the ins and outs of selling travel and how to interact with the luxury client and provided the skills needed to be successful in sales. The last 3 individuals who held this role are still with the company and have moved to different responsibilities. Growth potential exists within the company as does the role to become full time it depends on your performance and preferences.
