Job Description

**Currently hiring East Bay and San Francisco consultants**

Are you a 'people person'? Is great customer service your passion? Have you lived in the Bay Area for at least two years?

We are a relocation company working with local companies and their employees and are looking for a Destination Service consultant (DSC)/tour guide to join our growing team.

Our consultants work predominantly on weekends (particularly Saturdays). There are a limited number of tours available on weekdays.

As a consultant, you will be responsible for providing area and rental tours to our domestic and international clients. This involves the preparation of an itinerary and accompanying our clients to scheduled rental appointments.

To be a great fit for this position ideally you will:

  • Have an enthusiastic attitude and positive energy

  • Thrive on providing great service

  • Have a good knowledge of the Bay Area (2 years+ residency in the area)

  • Be fluent in English (knowledge of other languages is a plus, but not essential)

  • Have reliable transportation and a valid driver’s license

  • Be comfortable with technology

  • Be proficient at writing clear and concise emails with a keen attention to detail

  • Enjoy working with a variety of people from different cultural backgrounds

Prior experience in this type of work is an advantage but not essential as we offer a mentor program for new consultants.

Please note that this role does not guarantee regular hours as tour work is usually on weekends. However during our busy summer season (April through September) tour volume is high and opportunities for multiple tours, on weekends and on weekdays, are often available.

This is a 1099 contract position.

Company Description

We are a Bay Area relocation company helping people who are moving to the area for the first time. We provide home finding (area and rental touring) schools guidance, and settling in assistance to employees moving domestically and internationally.
