As part of the Team Jersey Induction Programme, Visit Jersey is offering a series of familiarisation trips to some of the island’s top hotspots for tourists. These trips are designed to make public facing tourism staff in Jersey ambassadors for our island, to give them the opportunity to get out of St. Helier and see the island through the eyes of a visitor, learning about key tourist sites attractions and activities across the island.
Our vision is that all attendees will go away with a new practical knowledge of the island and be able to inform and inspire visitors, ensuring that they experience the places that suit their interests the most, ensuing they enjoy their island beak to the full.
Accompanied by experienced Blue Badge Tour Guides, this full day itinerary includes visits to some of the places and partners listed here, as well as many of the island’s most popular beaches and bays. The trip also includes a sandwich lunch at Jersey Pearl in St. Ouen’s Bay.
These promise to be action packed days and will give customer service staff a first-hand experience of the island to share with guests.
