The award-winning Flight Centre is seeking a full-time Travel Consultant to join our High Street Kensington store. We’re looking for an enthusiastic individual who is ready for a career in travel (and not just a job). You’ll need the drive to succeed in sales and an unwavering passion for travel.

This varied Travel Consultant role will see you selling amazing travel experiences to your customers. Before you begin your role, we'll give you all the training you need to boost your knowledge of worldwide travel, train you on airfares and sharpen your sales skills. You’ll then get to put this into practice in-store but will receive ongoing training and development.

This is a unique opportunity to sell a product you love, while also benefiting from a generous bonus structure. When you begin your career, you’ll receive £20,000 in addition to your performance-related bonuses. The world really is your oyster as you will in charge of your earning potential (OTE of £28,000).

What You’ll Need
Ideally, you’ll be educated to degree level or equivalent and have some sales experience because this is essentially a sales role (the more you sell, the more you earn). We’re looking for people who are excited about travel and believe it’s the best thing money can buy. You will also need good IT skills, strong communication skills and the ability to make your customers feel loved. As our stores are open on the weekend and this can be the most popular time for our customers to visit, you'll need to be prepared to work weekends (although you will only work 5 days a week on a roster basis).
