Global travel company, Flight Centre, has an exceptional opportunity for a Travel Agent to join their Manchester team. The successful Travel Agent will begin a three-week training course in October or November (depending on the preferred start date) to plump up their travel knowledge, sales skills and introduce them to the booking systems they'll use to find the best possible airfares and holidays. In this position, you'll become a true travel specialist with the expertise to design unforgettable trips for your clients.
Within this Travel Agent role, you'll sell airfares and travel experiences to your clients, inspiring them to take on the world. You will manage every aspect of their trip, from finding boutique hotels to organising flights to arranging visas.
