Reality Tours & Travel is seeking a Marketing Manager for our city tours in Mumbai, new multi-city tours throughout India, and general expansion.

WHO ARE WE?

We are Reality Tours and Travel (RTT): a social tour operator based in Mumbai, winner of the World Responsible Tourism Award 2012, and most famous for our tours of the Dharavi slum.

Though known for our slum tours, we offer a variety of tours throughout Mumbai (bicycle, street food, public transportation, market, night tour) and have recently launched multi-day tours in other parts of India.

All of our tours are united by one simple aim: showing visitors places in that might be difficult to see/experience/visit on their own, and in doing so, allowing them to gain a full understanding of the city-- an understanding that includes becoming aware of some social issues that exist in Mumbai/India, while also celebrating some of the fantastic, amazing sights, experiences, food, and people that this city and country have to offer. 

Importantly, our tours showcase and support financially the activities of our sister NGO, Reality Gives (RGi) which runs and supports a variety of programs in the community. 80% of the profits from each and every RTT tour go towards funding Reality Gives.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We are looking for somebody who is keen, enthusiastic, and talented to work with an Indian and international team in Mumbai to play a key role in driving the organisation forward. 

Experience in marketing and/or tourism is a major bonus, but enthusiasm and a can-do attitude is even more important.

We are looking for you if...

  • You are passionate about using tourism as a means for positive change
  • You are creative
  • You have an ability to multi-task
  • You have excellent written English, communication and presentation skills
  • You ideally have formal marketing and/or tourism experience 
  • You have excellent computer skills
  • You have some basic graphic design and/or web designs skills
  • You are familiar with India and its challenges, or have interest in discovering them
  • You love to “get stuff done”

WHAT WILL WE OFFER YOU?

  • A lot of freedom to implement your ideas
  • Young, passionate Indian and international work colleagues
  • A great feeling about making a difference
  • A competitive salary

This role is perfect for someone with a couple years of background in marketing and/or tourism, but who's tired of their current location/environment!

We are looking for someone to begin February 1, 2014 and require a two year commitment. Please apply soon!
