Advice needed re; work in travel & tourism sector

Hi all,

I have recently moved to Luzern. I am English and speak fluent French and very basic German (start lessons next week.)
I am looking for work in the travel and tourism industry either as a rep or customer service advisor...or indeed any other role.
Does anyone know of any useful websites or agencies that could help me?
I am thinking of companies such as Thomson Tui or STA travel....but open to suggestions on other ones.

I have done this kind of work in the past in France.

I am also a qualified English teacher....but looking for a career change!!

Would appreciate any advice / contacts

Thanks, Liz

PS would be prepared to commute up to an hour to work.

As you mentioned "any other role" Liz why not try contacting Bucherer, Gübelin or Swiss Lion (the largest jewellery stores in Luzern) - they also have positions other than "just sales" and fluent English is a must. Casa Grande would also be an option to try.
