Background

Ski-Lifts are an established airport transfer booking agent, who work as an intermediary between airport transfer suppliers and customers. As the name suggests, our core business is currently in the ski industry, but we have other growing brands in other sectors and in the summer months.

The transport sector is one of the most popular investment sectors currently, with huge well known platforms attracting billions of dollars in investment, and we have found some as yet uncovered niches in the market which we are looking to capitalise on over the coming years.

Having been in operation for nearly 15 years, we have grown steadily year on year, developing our business practice and systems, to the point where we now have a scalable business that is ready to explode simply through the injection of greater passenger numbers and suppliers.

We have ambitious plans to grow the business exponentially over the next three years, by increasing our market share in our existing markets and simultaneously entering new markets that can be easily exploited.

We are looking to build a team to help manage us along this growth path – we want people to help us be more ambitious and to share in the rewards of this increased ambition. We are looking for people who are motivated to make such a career progression.

The right candidate will share our values of ambition, integrity and empathy, of course have strong written and verbal communications skills, be motivated, hardworking and driven to grow their career in a sales capacity.

We are a UK and French company, with our operations office in the French ski resort of Morzine and we are now opening a new UK head office in the heart of Manchester.
