Head of Revenue Management
Based near Derby, Derbyshire, our client is a successful hospitality business looking for their first Revenue Manager to join the business and help build the revenue management function as Head of Revenue Management.
This job would suit a strong revenue manager to be responsible for optimising contribution by leading cross functional decision-making on pricing, capacity and revenue management. This position will also require the revenue manager to create, improve and develop processes in the function to assist in this optimisation process.
Our client has seen significant growth in recent years and, although the last 12 months has introduced challenges, they have weathered the storm well and are confident of continued future growth.
