International PetRelocation Coordinator
Client Care | Austin, TX | Full Time
Job Title: International Relocation Coordinator
Department: Client Care
PetRelocation provides door-to-door transportation services for pets around the globe. No move is too great nor animal too exotic for our team and our extensive international network. We handle everything from pre-export paperwork to international quarantine laws, from flight bookings to customs clearance.
There are many life circumstances that prompt customers to seek our services, including relocation for job opportunities, employment transfers, military assignments, retirement, and more. As a result, our approach to potential customers is almost entirely consultative.
Being an animal lover is a prerequisite, not a plus. We are looking for individuals who not only love their pets, but are dedicated to using their experience and passion for helping our customers move the pets they love.
We're looking to hire a responsible, resourceful, and detail-oriented professional who excels at planning and problem-solving. You should immensely enjoy researching, multi-tasking, and staying organized. If you can’t live without a calendar, an agenda, or a to-do list, then this position is for you.
Extraordinary written and verbal communication skills are required. So much of what you will do involves complex communication – to the customers about our services, to the agents to make international travel arrangements, to the vendors for making sure we provide the best animal care and transportation. You will be evaluated on grammar, punctuation, and spelling, so you should be a good writer and an even better speaker.
You will need to be comfortable and confident in your ability to handle constant change and frequent ambiguity because we must dynamically adapt to the challenges of doing business in a rapidly growing and ever-changing industry. However, this fundamental nature of our company means that there is always potential for vertical and lateral movement to different positions, based on demonstrated strengths in leadership, customer service, training, and organizational development.
Please note that our clientele includes many employees and executives at Fortune 500 companies, so candidates for this position should possess an extraordinarily high degree of professionalism.
