Secret Escapes launched in January 2011, specialising in ‘Flash Sales’ (limited time sales at heavily discounted prices) of luxury hotels and holidays. Having become market leaders in the UK, as well as launching in Germany and Sweden, we are now looking to expand into the US. The company is now searching for talented Market Managers to accelerate our move into this exciting area of opportunity. Reporting to the Head of International Sales, the successful candidates will take responsibility for negotiating contracts for hotel product direct with suppliers in North America and the Caribbean.

Key responsibilities:

Deliver a best in class product offering by:

  • Negotiating discounts of up to 70% off hotel products direct with the product owners themselves
  • Identifying a pipeline of sales that offer a constant diversity of product across North America, from country hotels and spas to chic and boutique in the city
  • Manage all elements of the contracting process from target identification and initial contact right through to pricing, contract agreement and allocation management

Your profile

  • A proven Market Manager with a track record of successful product roles
  • Experience of negotiating contracts with hotels
  • Good knowledge of the hotel and holiday market in the US
  • Excellent sales and negotiation skills – previous flash sale experience a bonus
  • Boundless energy and commitment to your work and an entrepreneurial ‘can do’ approach to business
  • Fluent in English – other languages an advantage
  • Willingness to travel regularly to the UK as well as around North America as required

Is this the right role for you?

Secret Escapes is a privately owned small business (c 70 people) experiencing substantial growth and with a wealth of opportunities. Our environment is exciting, the pace of change is lightning fast and we have little or no red tape to slow us down. We all have a deep seated belief that we can really make things happen and if you are similarly energetic and prepared to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in you will love the freedom and opportunity that this role will give you.
