Oak Bay Tourism is on the hunt for energetic and enthusiastic people to welcome guests to our community.
For the second summer season, destination ambassadors will chat up visitors along Oak Bay Avenue, Oak Bay Marina, Willow’s Beach, Tourism Victoria’s Info Centre and at events in the community and downtown Victoria.
Their role will be to welcome visitors and provide information on where to go and what to see, such as restaurants, shops, washrooms, parks, trails, beaches and wildlife. Some take a spin with the Oak Bay Tourism info bike during events.
Ambassadors would have shifts from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday to Sunday and during peak of July and August, Monday through Sunday.
Those seeking experience beyond visitor service coordination can work with Oak Bay Tourism’s marketing manager on social media campaigns, develop tourism products, website maintenance, and attend conferences and tourism related mixers.
“This is a great opportunity for students looking for volunteer or co-op hours from their schools and references for future job opportunities,” says Kira Harris, marketing manager for Oak Bay Tourism. “It is also a great opportunity for those in the community that are passionate about Oak Bay and want to represent our beautiful community to the many visitors it sees each year.”
Interested candidates do not need to have knowledge of Oak Bay, but customer service skills are necessary. Training will be provided. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Oak Bay Ambassador for details. Visit www.oakbaytourism.com to learn more about tourism activities.
