  • Bluebridge

    Sales Manager

    Bluebridge is setting off in an exciting new direction, and you can get us on our way. A recent change in ownership and management has given us a new focus on business development which is where you come in.

    Because passenger ferry crossings are a huge growth area for us, we’ve created the brand new role of Sales Manager to make sure we reach our full potential. You’ll work on building those sales, growing our market share, and generally raising the profile of Bluebridge in the tourism industry.

    It’s going to be a great role for someone who enjoys building relationships. We want you to get on board with travel agents, i-SITES and tour operators all around the country and even overseas anyone who sells Cook Strait crossings to the general public.

    You’ll bring a significant amount of experience as a Sales Manager in the travel and tourism industry, enough to enable you to get right in and start getting results. So it would be a big plus if you’ve already got relationships with some of these tourism industry operators and know a bit about tourism industry-related IT.

    A sales-focused, target-oriented type, you’ll be someone who can quickly gain respect and trust and make people want to do business with you. This isn’t a role for someone who takes a slow-burn approach to sales you need to be engaging, proactive, and determined.

    It’s the kind of role a seasoned salesperson will jump at, because you’ll quickly see the difference your efforts are making, and be able to celebrate your success. And if you’re keen to walk in the door and just go for it, we want to talk to you.

    If you have questions you can also contact Jane on 021 084 52735.

    The recruitment of this role is being managed by HainesAttract Recruitment.
