Globally acclaimed Norwegian Cruise Line is expanding its at-home reservations agent initiative to five new markets including Greenville County, South Carolina and the surrounding Upstate area, the company and economic development officials have announced.
And right now, interested applicants can go online to www.scworks.org to apply for a limited number of positions in the company’s first Upstate South Carolina team of hires. Interested applicants can search for complete details at the SC Works site by searching for job number 848922 or by searching for Norwegian Cruise Lines. While early respondents will be considered immediately for the first group of approximately 30 hires, applications will be considered up until May 17 for subsequent waves of hiring.
Norwegian Cruise Line expanded its at-home agent program outside of Florida and Arizona for the first time this year, recruiting from the Piedmont-Triad region of North Carolina last summer. The initiative is also seeking interested applicants from Orlando, Tampa, Columbus (GA) and Killeen-Temple (TX), the company noted.
The agents will undergo thorough paid training and will be the first point of contact for guests and travel agents looking to design their dream vacation on board one of Norwegian Cruise Line’s fleet of 17 ships visiting nearly 300 destinations around the globe. The entry level positions require agents to understand and match guests’ vacation plans to unforgettable Norwegian Cruise Line experiences. The first wave of the newly hired group will begin paid training on May 20.
Following hiring and training of the initial class, additional groups of applicants will be considered for similar positions with Norwegian Cruise Line, the company announced.
“Greenville County is happy that a globally celebrated brand like Norwegian Cruise Line has turned to Greenville County, South Carolina for the vital customer service talent they need to grow and advance their business,” said Greenville County Council Chairman and Greenville Area Development Corporation Director H.G. “Butch” Kirven Jr. “We are confident that our diverse and talented workforce will be a perfect fit for their needs, now and long into the future.”
