As a Sojourn tour leader, you and your co-leader will spend the tour engaging our guests and ensuring their safety and enjoyment. You will rise early each morning to attend to behind the scenes details and preparation, and end each day late in the evening. You will need to be a jack of all trades (see below) and will serve as the face of the company while in the field. While the job is extremely fun for the right individual, it requires long hours on the job – not necessarily in the saddle of your bike. For the right person, the job might just be the best one you will ever have.
Do you have what it takes? Here’s the short list of critical attributes you’ll need to possess:
-Are a competent road cyclist who can ride comfortably at 15-18 mph for 2-3 hours at a time
-Have basic bike mechanical ability such as changing a tire, adjusting brakes and derailleurs
-Have a current motor vehicle operator’s license in violation-free standing, and are able to pass a DOT physical
-Are fit enough to repeatedly carry 30-50 lb luggage, often upstairs
-Are available to participate in training in Charlotte, VT, in Spring 2019
-Enjoy interacting with people and possess exceptional customer service skills
-Have outstanding communication skills and are comfortable addressing a group
-Are energetic and function well without much downtime
-Have an inherent curiosity with interest in history, geology, and/or the natural world
-Have an excellent sense of direction and map-reading skills
-Are a foodie, wine or beer aficionado, and can put on a really good spread for 20 people
-Per tour wage
-Extensive industry benefits
-A resume and introductory cover letter
-A self-assessment of why you are interested and why you would be a great fit for Sojourn
-A copy of your motor vehicle operator’s license
