We have recently moved to purpose built offices within North Kilworth Marina, and we're looking for an Sales Assistant to complement the team.
Current status - Accepting applications - Closing date 31st July 2021.
Part time position working for ABNB based at North Kilworth Marina.
We are looking for a part time person who likes a challenge, is willing to learn some new skills and work as part of a team.
Involves generally, working two weekends a month, with possibly some week day holiday cover, as well as helping us at the Crick Boat Show.
The ideal candidate will know their way around a boat, have experience in delivering great customer service, and have computer skills.
Full training will be given using our customer management system. Above all must have a good sense of humour, and willing to be flexible.
We'd like to know if you would be suited to this position within ABNB and of course whether the job would suit you. To that end we'd appreciate knowing any relevant experience, including those in certain areas detailed below, you have gathered in your employment plus levels of responsibility acquired professionally and socially. You may not have all the attributes we are looking for but don't consider this a disadvantage as training will be given where necessary.
Administrative experience is a must and working within a small team. Have you worked in an open-plan office? What size team have you previously worked in? Have you worked for an organisation that operates 7 days a week?
Knowledge of boating is helpful for any applicant and we'd like to know the extent of your boat experience, e.g. holidays on the canals, or hiring a day boat?
Computer skills are essential, along with experience of an Apple Mac (preferably). What are your IT skills? What range of programmes and applications have you used? Do you use computers at work, and if so in what way? Are you familiar with the Internet & social networking sites?
Dealing with the public is an every day duty, both on the telephone, by email and in person. What experience have you had in working with the public? You will need to communicate confidently and effectively with everyone of all backgrounds, both orally and in writing.
• You will be asked to keep detailed records and be able to operate effectively under pressure whilst dealing with frequent interruptions. Can you demonstrate that you have the ability to keep accurate records under pressure?
• Excellent organisational skills are essential with the ability to prioritise and manage a varied workload efficiently and keep to specified deadlines. Can you demonstrate that you have the ability to organise & prioritise?
• Be able to work as part of a team and be willing to help other team members in times of pressure. In a 7 days a week business we need to seamlessly pass the baton between team members, so that our customers receive a "joined-up" service - this requires excellent communication skills.
• Have the ability to maintain confidentiality for sensitive information or situations. Have you experience in handling confidential information?
