Timeshare the ideal workplace in India
The chairman of India’s timeshare body the All India Resort Developers Association (AIRDA) says the industry is the perfect place to work in India, offering a range of job opportunities and excellent career prospects.
In his latest address to members, B. S. Rathor, who is also principal advisor of the AIRDA Executive Committee, said India’s “timeshare space is a great place to be in, with first-job and career building opportunities in all departments – right across marketing, sales, finance, F&B, administration and resort management, to facilities, housekeeping and other customer support areas”.
Rathor based his observations on resort chains within the AIRDA network in India, and highlighted the differences between sales (which is marked), F&B work (marginal) and customer service between timeshare and traditional holiday products and experiences. All three lend themselves to innovative ways to work and do business, as well as to develop a career.
In terms of the customer experience, Rathor said: “On a timeshare holiday the resort becomes the focal point of activity – a hotel by and large is a transit point. That’s why activity management in timeshare has a wide focus and includes space, infrastructure, people and an activity calendar.”
He also said customer support was a “key responsibility at a timeshare resort”.
“This is a great platform for learning and interacting with your customer, and relevant experience at a timeshare company is always considered a big advantage by prospective employers,” he explained.
“Jobs and careers in timeshare also help you grow and mature as professionals – arming you with the discipline required to plan ahead and meet your goals – both personally, and for your organization.”
