Our client, a specialist in providing bespoke language immersion and educational school trips, is looking for a personable and intelligent French speaking coordinator to join their team, to continue their expansion.
Our client provides exclusive international experiences to schools that allow the pupils to immerse themselves in the culture and language of the country they are travelling to. They provide this via specialist venues abroad which allow children to practise their language skills through a variety of activities such as rock climbing and escape rooms.
Our client is looking for an engaging, intelligent and vibrant individual to assist in coordinating these trips which are then provided to a variety of educational establishments, primarily in the private schools sector.

- Producing detailed travel itineraries based on client requirements
- Keeping the reservation booking system up to date
- Keeping work files up to date
- Dealing with the health and safety audits of hotels (subject to training)

- Fluency in French is essential
- Fluency in Spanish is desirable but not essential
