Indigo Safaris is a small but growing safari and dive travel company. I am looking for an experienced sales consultant to join the company.

Business has increased consistently and our small team of four needs to grow again, We are looking for someone to help us deal with enquiries and transform them into sales. OUR OFFER The successful candidate will receive a basic monthly wage of 25,000 ZAR and a quarterly commission of 10% of the gross profit their sales generate, over $15,000. For example, if their gross profit for the quarter is $20,000, they make 20% of $5,000, which is around 14,500 ZAR.
