In the past six years Forgotten World Adventures has gone from being the pipe dream of a farmer to hosting over 22,000 tourists, using our custom-built rail carts, rail bikes, a jet boat and helicopter tours to show them an incredibly beautiful and historical part of New Zealand.
We’ve experienced fast growth in our first exciting years of business, won a slew of business and tourism awards, and made a real difference to the rural towns we operate in by opening up new roles and bringing in an additional 6500 travellers a year. 72% of our business at Forgotten World Adventures comes from word of mouth because customer experience is at the core of everything we do.
Growth has been strong year-on-year in a mainly domestic market but now we’re ready to reach new international markets and continue to grow. We need someone with vision, strategic thinking and a proven track record at the helm. We’re on a mission to make Forgotten World Adventures one of the top five attractions in New Zealand and we need a general manager who has the skill set to take us there.
You might not have tourism experience, but you will have experience with building talented teams, achieving challenging goals, and being focused on incredible customer experience, for clients, staff, owners, suppliers and the community - so you'll need to be a true leader.
We are looking for someone who is excited about doubling our revenue over the next three years, passionate about securing our position as a ‘bucket list’ experience for our target market, and focused on developing our reputation as an industry leader.
The role will be based in Taumarunui, a fantastic place if you love the outdoor adventure lifestyle. It’s a progressive region in revitalisation mode, with a great supportive community.
The icing on the cake is we're offering a very attractive Auckland salary, with the ability to earn healthy bonuses.
If you’re ready to help us take FWA to the next level and have the skill set to do so, we want to hear from you!
Please send your CV and a carefully crafted covering letter that explains who you are and why you’d be great at this role to email@example.com.
Applications will close on the 31st July 2017.
We will be in touch with everybody who replies, whether successful or not.
Forgotten World Adventures is proud to be an equal opportunities employer.
