Rockjumper Worldwide Birding Tours, the world’s premier global birding and nature tour company, is seeking a dynamic Sales and Administration Officer based in the United States.
This is a full-time position involving frequent, regular communications with current clients and potential guests of Rockjumper Birding Tours, and also with our sister companies, Rockjumper Wildlife, Out of Bounds, and Tau Anthropological Safaris. The emphasis is on customer service and sales, with communications conducted largely by phone and email, and includes staffing of our US inquiry phone line, associated data entry, managing booking details, and setting and achieving monthly sales targets. Some travel to US birding events in North America is likely, and occasionally, there may be opportunity for international travel.
No previous sales experience is required. We are seeking an avid birder/bird-watcher, active in the US birding community, with experience in birding travel and/or birding events. This position offers room to grow within the company, and an opportunity to earn a base salary plus commission. Ideal candidates will exhibit outstanding interpersonal skills and communication skills, and a firm understanding of the U.S. and Canadian birding community. Candidates must be motivated, have a positive personality, show strong attention to detail, great administrative skills, with the self-discipline to work remotely. Ideal candidates are located in the U.S. but candidates from anywhere in North, Central, or South America could be considered as well. Most of the work is from home, so applicants should possess the ability to work independently while also being able to function as part of a distributed team.
Qualified candidates please send a resume, cover letter, and personal references to email@example.com.
