We are currently seeking a ‘go-getter’ who wants to carve their own niche within the travel industry.

Our office is based in an inner-city Melbourne suburb, close to all forms of public transport, and surrounded by some of the city’s best cafes and restaurants. This role is Monday-Friday, but some additional weekend/after hours
and holiday work may be required from time to time during peak tourism seasons, as well handling our after-hours phone one week per month.

Essential skills include:
• A friendly, enthusiastic, courteous and professional demeanour
