Carr Golf Travel doesn’t need much of an introduction, certainly not on these shores. As a leading golf tour operator of – shall we say – famous stock, the company creates unique golf vacations to Ireland, Scotland and a number of other golf destinations worldwide.
There are plenty of other ‘golf travel’ companies out there, but Carr Golf has a reputation, pedigree and a somewhat broader remit than most… for instance, the Carr Group also offers corporate and incentive travel as well as hosting golf events such as the World Invitational Father & Son Golf Tournament (to be held yet again at Waterville, between 8 and 12 August 2012).
Learn The Ropes
In other words, they know a thing or two about the golf travel business, so what better environment to start learning the ropes…
The company, based at the Elmgreen Golf Centre, Castleknock, Dublin 15, are now looking for someone to fill a six-month intern position, between April and September.
It’s an administration-based role but the candidate will also have the opportunity to learn how the company operates, specifically in the areas of Free Independent Traveller (FIT) Business (i.e. travel for 1 to 16 people) and Events.
They will be involved in the day-to-day tasks of the Travel Team, but will also get the opportunity to travel to Irish Events to see how they operate on site, and assist accordingly. It will be a busy environment and the learning curve steep, but it will be a bit of a ‘gold star’ on your CV and, who knows, if you perform brilliantly you may get yourself a full time job with the company.
Have You Got What It Takes?
I’m told there are no specific qualifications required, but Travel/Tourism Industry experience would be a plus, as would a knowledge of golf… but then if you’re on this blog the chances are that golf already plays some role in your life!
What you do need to have is enthusiasm, energy and strong organisational and administration skills.
