We are looking for two interns who have a passion for travel to join Scott Dunn, a luxury travel company, for the summer.  You would be working closely with our Travel Consultants to ensure our guests booking and holiday goes seamlessly. Do you enjoy customer service and speaking with guests over the phone? This would be a great opportunity to further those skills. You will be instrumental to the sales team and it will give you a great understanding of a sales role and the holiday process from booking to departure and gathering feedback post holiday. You will be working as part of a team, and will learn about the realities of ensuring all parts of a guests holiday are ready so they can have an exceptional trip.  This is a great opportunity for someone looking for their first step into the travel and tourism sector or somebody looking to move into a sales or service role and learn more about travel in the process. We are looking for two interns for 3 months, we do hope this role will lead to further opportunities within Scott Dunn.
