Beneficial Experience

We'd like to know if you would be suited to the position of Sales Assistant 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 or socially. You may not have all the attributes we are looking for but don't consider this a disadvantage as full training will be given where necessary.

Knowledge of boating is a must for any applicant and we'd like to know the extent of your boat handling experience, and your history with boats.

Computer skills are essential although full training will be given. An understanding of the fundamental conventions which govern database use would be an advantage. What are your IT skills? What range of programmes and applications have you used? Do you use computers at work or at home, and if so in what way?

Selling is a main part of the job. What experience have you in selling?

Dealing with the public is an every day duty, both on the telephone 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 make accurate records of ABNB customers and may be frequently interupted at times, how are you at dealing with this sort of working environment?
• 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 you worked in a small dynamic team?
• Have the ability to maintain confidentiality for sensitive information or situations. Have you experience in handling confidential information?
