Travel Manitoba is looking for passionate Manitobans for seasonal employment at our Emerson Visitor Information Centre located on Highway 75 at the Canada/US border.
Our centre is open to the public year-round but we require additional staff from mid-May to September 7, 2020. We assist Canadian and international travelers by providing maps, travel
brochures and personal service. Our Travel Counsellors help visitors with any questions and make personalized recommendations about places to go and things to see and do while they are in Manitoba. We want travelers to have the best experience possible while they are here.
We are looking for hard-working individuals to work at the Emerson Visitor Centre. Candidates should be enthusiastic and comfortable interacting with the public. All of our staff are proud to promote our beautiful province so a positive attitude is a MUST!
The successful candidates will demonstrate excellent interpersonal and customer service skills, possess strong organizational and communication abilities and have the ability to work independently as well as part of a team. An understanding of the tourism industry, particularly in Manitoba, would be an asset. Computer proficiencies will include Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook. Bilingual language skills (English & French) would be considered an asset.
There are fulltime and part-time seasonal positions available. Staff will be expected to work weekends and statutory holidays as these are the busiest times at our Visitor Centres. All staff will attend a training session in Winnipeg in mid-May. Travel expenses will be reimbursed.
Closing Date: Friday, March 27, 2020
