This stage is a two-way opportunity for us to assess you on your suitability for the role as well as for you to find out more about Flight Centre Travel Group.

Depending on your availability for your phone and group interviews, you could have a final outcome and offer within 1 to 3 weeks!

In choosing Flight Centre, our customers have a high expectation that our travel sales consultants have themselves travelled, as it's through this personal experience that great recommendations can be made. However, it's not the be-all and end-all.

We have had successful consultants in the past with strong sales skills, good academic results and a passion for travel, who have not travelled extensively before joining the company. So, don't rule yourself out of a chance just because you haven't toured the world yet!

While you'll be able to make bookings from your first day in store, becoming an expert Travel Sales Consultant takes about two years.

Joining FCTG is not simply about getting a job, it really is about starting a new career. If you invest time into your learning (through our internal learning programs), within two years, you'll have a fantastic career in a company that offers endless opportunities.

One of the best things about working for us is that we love to recruit from within and help our people reach their professional goals. Many of our Travel Sales Consultants go on to become Team Leaders or Area Leaders and others end up in our head office running divisions. Even members of our Global Leadership Team started out as Travel Consultants back in the day!

We've got more than 30 brands in 90 countries, so your first step into a Travel Sales Consultant role could be the one of many in a career that traverses the world.
