August 23, 2018More member and customer nurturing is on the way at Vidanta Resorts. First, we understand there is a new position within the organization - The Chief Experience Officer. This new position presumably is an extension and expansion of the Member Liaison that participated in the Aimfair Gatherings in 2016, 2017 and 2018. An introduction to this new person could come in September, after Vidanta’s annual meeting, which will be held in Spain this year.
Along those lines, we saw the following announcement in an August 23, 2018 post in the online version of Travel and Leisure Magazine. Vidanta is looking for a Brand Ambassador, and it sounds like the company is becoming serious about communicating with its members and guests. Here is the article:
You Could Get Paid $120,000 to Spend a Year at Some of Mexico's Most Beautiful Resorts
AUGUST 23, 2018
How does this sound? A year in Mexico’s most beautiful destinations — including Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Maya, Los Cabos, Acapulco, Puerto Peñasco, and Puerta Vallarta — plus gourmet dining, high-end spas, designer golf courses, and exclusive entertainment. All this and a one-year salary of $120,000 plus travel expenses.
This over-the-top job opportunity was just announced by Vidanta, a collection of premier destination resorts across Mexico. One lucky and qualified candidate will become Vidanta’s brand ambassador with some of Mexico’s most impressive resorts as their new workplace.
“It’s an understatement when we say that the ‘perks’ of this position are endless,” Iván Chávez, executive vice president of Grupo Vidanta, said in a statement. “The lucky applicant will fully immerse themselves in each of our resort destinations; from uncovering ancient Mayan ruins, hidden eateries, and underwater cenotes to discovering the hottest new restaurants and nightclubs.”
There is a bit of work involved in the “world’s best job,” however. The brand ambassador will act as Vidanta’s on-location social influencer, gathering content while experiencing the luxury, comfort, and adventure offered at their resorts. It will be the ambassador's job to inspire travelers worldwide through their experiences, such as breakfast in bed, luxurious spa treatments, poolside margaritas, and zip line adventures through the Riviera Nayarit jungle. Taste-testing new dishes prepared by Mexico’s culinary superstar chefs, visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites, and stargazing along the Sea of Cortez will be all in a day’s work.
The individual selected will go through an extensive training program which will not only prepare them for the brand ambassador role, but will also provide skills for a successful post-Mexico career (if they ever leave, that is). The ideal candidate will have sales or hospitality experience, a warm personality, and willingness to relocate to Mexico along with love for travel and new experiences.
If all this sounds great — and why wouldn’t it? — apply online at worldsbestjob.com and submit your resume in addition to an optional 60-second video before Sunday, Oct. 21 at 11:50 p.m. CDT.
Looks like a great job! Also, it appears Vidanta is working toward managing its message. It will be fun to follow this new development and how it impacts current members of Vidanta and Aimfair.
