Wilderness and Wildlife Travel Consultant
Aqua-Firma is looking for a Wilderness and Wildlife Travel Consultant to join us in our offices in Charlestown, Cornwall. Previous travel experience in relevant countries is important, such as Latin America, East and Southern Africa, South East Asia and the Polar regions. You will also need to have a keen interest in responsible travel, wilderness and natural history and an aptitude for sales, administration and excellent client liaison which is essential when creating tailor made experiences for clients. The role will also incorporate opportunities to develop the experiences we offer and become involved in marketing and PR. Experience in activities which include sailing, diving, canoeing and conservation will be of great advantage.
The personal qualities we need are enthusiasm, excellent written and organisational skills, an eye for detail and the ability to work at a fast rate and multi-task. Experience with Word and email management is important, as is good telephone, written and face to face communication skills. Prior knowledge of the travel industry is not essential.
Location: Our offices overlook one of the most inspirational maritime sites in Britain. Charlestown harbour is a World Heritage Site kept in near impeccable Cornish style with stunning beaches either side of the harbour and dramatic cliff coastlines in the direction of Mevagissey and Fowey in view across St Austell Bay.
Whilst the harbour itself often plays stage to period dramas, the ships are regularly employed to feature in films and series such as Longitude, Creation and the Onedin Line.
10 minutes to the east is the sailing and walking mecca of Fowey, which was also once rated by Ray Mears as the best place in Britain to go canoeing. Good diving can be found to the east and west, surfing to the north and great walks can be found throughout the county including the Coastal Path which runs a few yards from the office.
Of towns, the amenities of St Austell are nearby, Truro lies 25 minutes to the west, Plymouth is about an hour away and Newquay is 1/2 hour away on the opposite coast. The Eden Project is a mere 3 miles away which itself lies close to some of the best countryside in mid-Cornwall.
