Careers

We are hiring!

Our current exciting vacancies are listed below. If you think you have what it takes, get in touch!

The company: EcoHotels, operators of award winning Feynan Ecolodge www.ecohotels.me/feynan. In December 2014 Bank Al Etihad nominated us as one of the best SMEs in Jordan. In April 2015 our MD was a finalist for Ernst & Young's emerging entrepreneur of the year award for his work bringing ecotourism to Jordan. In June 2013, National Geographic chose our flagship property, Feynan Ecolodge, as one of the best 25 ecolodges in the world. Safe to say we are an exciting, growing company and we are dedicated to doing our best.

Location: All the positions are based at our offices in Jabal Al-Lweibdeh, Amman, but the good news is that regular travel is to be expected to Feynan and other company sites in the future. So yes, you get to change scenery regularly. If you want an exclusively office based job, none of the roles here are for you.

To apply email us with your CV and a covering letter to jobs@ecohotels.me

See below for what we expect from your covering letter. 

Vacancies:

1. Reservations Officer/Sales and Marketing Coordinator

The role: Working within our reservations department, you will be handling all reservations for our properties coming through our website, phone, fax and email.  You will also provide assistance to our sales and marketing team.

What we are looking for:  Ideally you are a recent university graduate. You are computer literate, a great communicator in Arabic and English, both written and oral, with a good knowledge of Microsoft Office products.  You are also personable, detail oriented, well organized and capable of multi-tasking various projects simultaneously.

2. Business Development/Sales Executive

The role: Your mandate would be to increase the number of people coming to Feynan. Working with the Managing Director, predominantly you will be targeting corporate/NGO training workshops and retreats, group/yoga/meditation retreats, special events, tour operators and local hotels.

What are we looking for: You are a recent graduate. You need to be a people person. You are outgoing and you enjoy dealing with people from any culture, background, age, sex, etc... You are very social and find it easy to build and maintain relationships. You are customer focused and results oriented. You are also fluent in written and spoken English and spoken Arabic, and numbers do not scare you. You need to be well-organised and good at managing several things at once. You will be happy to travel to Feynan (and other company sites in the future) regularly and loving the outdoors would be a great asset, as adventure comes with the role. Oh, and you must be a hard working team player willing to do what it takes to get the job done. If you do not have any sales experience, no worries; we do, and we will help you develop your skills. But you should be smart and a quick learner.

Experience: Well that is not crucial. Although having some background in sales and/or tourism would be helpful, it is not essential and not a show stopper.
