The Cruise Centre Adopts a Greater Work Life Balance

March 14, 2018 Careers No Comments Email Email

As the demand for home-based cruise consultants rises and a desire for greater work life balance becomes more apparent in today’s working environment, Goldman Group’s The Cruise Centre is branching out and hiring home-based cruise experts.

Leading travel company, The Goldman Group, acquired The Cruise Centre in 2017. Widely respected as one of Australia’s leading boutique cruise agencies, The Cruise Centre, led by Elizabeth Clarke, is acclaimed for its team of voyage specialists, all with extensive first-hand cruising expertise across a range of vessels to both trending and far flung destinations around the globe.

Celebrating 35 years in the travel business in 2018, The Goldman Group is planning the expansion of The Cruise Centre brand into Sydney and Melbourne and sees the recruitment of “at-home consultants” as a pillar of this expansion. Australia is currently the fifth largest source market for cruises globally, therefore strengthening The Cruise Centre was a top priority for the group.

Anthony Goldman, Joint Managing Director of Goldman Group says: “Offering flexible work conditions enables The Cruise Centre to tap into cruise experts regardless of where they are based. When we acquired the brand, our goal was to expand in the near future, so we can service and grow our cruise clientele nationwide.

Cruise specialist advisors will work on their own terms but have the backing of the Goldman Group’s industry expertise, connections and buying power, without the need for a bricks-and-mortar shopfront.

The remote advisor travel sector serves as a viable career option for those seeking flexibility in their work and wanting to achieve a greater work life balance. There are many travel agents who operate as sole proprietors, with ABS data showing growth of almost 50% (1966 to 2782 sole traders) over three years from 2013 – 2016, a positive indicator for agents considering the transition to become an at-home advisor.

With flexibility on the wish list for workers of all ages, it might be time to consider a sea-change and make the move to become an independent, at-home cruise consultant.
