We are seeking a creative, hands on, technically savvy Branch Manager to manage our Darwin Branch.

You will be asked to fit into the unique culture and dynamics of not just our company but the backpacker industry in general. We are a leader in the backpacker travel market and are heavily invested in connecting with our market, as such the workplace reflects a casual environment with a strong bias towards youth-based marketing initiatives.

We want an ideas person, an initiator, someone flexible, keen to do well, and with a strong desire to make their mark. We want you to own your work, and also to be an obliging, flexible team member.

  • Zen master on PC & Microsoft office

  • Flexibility to sometimes deal with issues outside of work hours. Including industry socials.

  • Mechanical Qualifications/Experience. You will need to know the front end from the back end of the car, or how much blinker fluid is normally required?

Responsibilities will include customer service, sales and marketing, branch presentation, management reporting, staffing, all local fleet management, purchasing and sales. It is a front office and back office hands on job. As we are tourism based, we have very busy periods and some quiet periods, your time management skills will ultimately be the measure of your success.
