Weekend Travel Operations Coordinator

Travel Operations Coordinator
Cultural Care Au Pair

About Cultural Care:

We help young adults from around the world make the impressive commitment to spend a year away from family and friends to live with an American host family. Cultural Care Au Pair is a designated program sponsor under the U.S. Department of State’s federally regulated au pair program. We provide support and program management during this exchange year. Cultural Care has recently celebrated 25 years of bringing families and au pairs together. We are a worldwide organization based in more than 20 countries.


About the role:

Along with your teammates, you will be responsible for ensuring that thousands of travelers get WHERE they need to be WHEN they need to be there.  You’ll ensure that they do so safely, efficiently, and comfortably.  All the while, you’ll execute upon a tight communications strategy to ensure all stakeholders are kept up-to-date during constantly evolving situations.  If you LOVE solving puzzles, WOWing customers, and learning new things---you’ll have a blast.  There’s always something new to learn and experience,  and you’ll be a critical piece of the engine behind this successful program.


This is an amazing opportunity to not only learn about this important cultural exchange program, but to also learn everything there is to know about the airline industry.  Ever wonder what your gate agent is furiously typing into their computer when you check in at the airport?  Prepare to learn!


This is not a normal job:

We are looking for someone who is excited to work a non-traditional schedule.  Most of our au pairs are traveling between Friday and Monday.  The schedule for this role is Friday through Monday, including being on call throughout the weekend in case of emergency.


About you:

    • You won’t feel left out when your friends make weekend plans and you have to work.
    • You are excited about the prospect of having Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday off every week. A four day work week is something you’ve dreamed off.  You are excited about the prospect of running errands while the stores are empty. 
    • You are completely unafraid to make decisions in the absence of your manager.  In fact, you prefer being trusted to work alone.
    • Experience with Amadeus a definite plus but in lieu of experience, an affinity for learning new systems will work as well.
