Overseas representative jobs

We do not run large group holidays, and go out of our way to avoid coach parties. In the summer months on our self guided walking and self guided cycling holidays, customers can normally arrive every two days. As we only have 4 rooms contracted at each hotel, even on the busiest of arrivals days you are unlikely to have more than eight people PER HOLIDAY to look after. (As most regions have at least 2 holidays on offer, you'll typically have up to 16 customers arriving on a busy day). On both our guided walking and cross country skiing holidays there is normally only one arrival day per week.

As with any job in the travel business, a service industry, our staff are employed to provide a service. Working for Headwater can be fun, but it does also involve a great deal of hard work, requiring both brain and in some cases muscle power. It demands a high level of adaptability, tolerance, common sense and organisational skills.

Our overseas staff must be prepared to be on call 24 hours a day and willing to tackle any emergency. In some circumstances this may lead to them suffering a certain amount of discomfort or inconvenience themselves, in order that our customers receive the standard of service they expect from our company.

Basically, if it's a 9-5, Monday - Friday job you're looking for, or if you fancy yourself sunbathing everyday by the swimming pool then you're applying to the wrong company!

But if this sounds like the job for you then you should find out more about working as an overseas rep and read our frequently asked questions. To apply for an overseas position, please contact our Operations Manager, Mike Wheeler, on +44 (1606) 720006  Mike.Wheeler@Headwater.com for further details.
