Do you work within Weddings or Events within the Hotel or Hospitality sector?

Are you looking for something new and exciting?

If so, this could be the right new role for you.   This is a unique role to work within this leading Hospitality business based in the centre of Leeds.  Our client is looking for a true Relationship Builder as this is not a 'hard sales' role but much more about the service you provide and building those key relationships with clients.  Your aim within this role is to raise brand awareness, drive sales forward and look at the overall customer experience provided, to ensure you are giving a superb level of service to customers.  Your focus will be on Corporate and Group bookings, and we are looking for a creative mindset and someone who naturally thinks "outside of the box".

What we are looking for

  • A Senior Customer Service or Sales background possibly gained within Hotels, Restaurants, Retail, Travel or any other customer focused environment, where relationship management and focus on excellence in customer service is paramount.
  • Self motivated, flexible around working hours, to enable you to attend client events
  • Excellent communication skills, personable and positive in your approach
  • A real focus on customer service, and excellence within your work

What will you be involved with:

  • You will be networking and thinking creatively to approach and work with current clients with the aim of increasing sales, focusing on corporate and group business
  • You will attend and network at Events in and around the Leeds area
  • Focus on the customer and guest experience, presenting ideas and tailoring packages to meet and exceed client expectations
  • Working closely with other BDM's around the UK to share ideas
  • Working via social media platforms to increase brand awareness

This is a great role and would suit a Graduate or someone with equivalent work experience who enjoys building key relationships.  You will be flexible around working hours as this job naturally has evening hours associated but you will get time back for this. If you have the skills and experience outlined above, please send your CV immediately to be considered.
