Ruapehu Alpine Lifts

Sales Manager

We're on the hunt for an experienced and passionate Sales Manager to join our team at Mt Ruapehu. This is a new role that will drive sales and visitation to both Whakapapa and Turoa, NZ's two largest ski areas. Our unique selling point is our location and that we operate on an active volcano in a World Heritage Area, but we don't like to rest on that alone so you will need some savvy sales skills to promote the business and what we do.

Working at Mt Ruapehu, you'll be surrounded by like-minded people who are flexible, willing to have a crack where needed, work hard and then ski/ride even harder!

Everyone here shares a passion for the mountain and the surrounding region because of the endless possibilities for adventure. Whether it's because you love nature, the truly unique world heritage area, or the obvious draw card of skiing/riding the volcano, there are opportunities for REAL FUN at every turn.


Based in Taupo, there will be regular visits to the ski areas so that you can mingle with the team as well as check in on our products first hand. No two days are ever the same at Mt Ruapehu but you can expect that you will actively be working with retail, inbound and C&I travel partners to support all RAL products and services. You will also help develop and drive strategies for promotions, events and new products through ongoing analysis of sales figures and market trends. Essentially, you will be the oracle for all things RAL sales and the go to point of contact for our sales partners.

Some domestic and possibly international travel involving overnight absences is required as well as some out of hours work. On the plus side, you get to ski or ride on the great weather days and sell the experience to others.


At Mt Ruapehu you don't just need to be an expert in your field, we also want you to share our passion for skiing, riding, and our adventure playground across all four seasons. That passion will translate into high levels of initiative and the ability to build a solid base of relationships that will add value to the business. We hope that you'll bring:

"Real World" sales acumen with proven 2-5 years direct selling
The ability to dissect the numbers and use these to forecast trends
Exceptional communication and the natural ability to build rapport with a variety of markets
Passion and experience in a tourism business, ideally snowsports
A qualification in Business and/or Marketing would be an advantage
We're all about having REAL FUN in this UNREAL PLACE, so if you think you can help put Mt Ruapehu at the forefront of everyone's mind when they think snowsports adventure, then we want to hear from you.

Come and explore your new backyard with us!
