Palm Resort is a growing business in hotel and hospitality, striving to deliver the best service within the well-established environment. Guests are treated with the best and the most perfect service only because every guest should have the world-class treatment like a king (or a queen). Within our 5 years of journey, we strive to deliver only the most satisfying service and quality and our hard work pays off. We are now proudly opening our 8th establishment in Florida and we need a professional Hotel Sales Manager to join the team.
The main job of the manager is to encourage people and attract customers to become our guests. The person should be able to maintain good relationship with the already existing clients’ base while attracting more potential clients. Not only the manager will be responsible for the sales team performance, but the person himself should be able to come up with fresh ideas of how to boost room occupancy and develop a good clients’ base.
These are the common works of the manager: detecting and interacting with potential customers, analyzing market trends, closing business deals, meeting up with clients, managing sales teams, and coming up with ideas and plans that can affect the sales and occupancy rate. Naturally, the candidate should possess good networking ability, strong communication base, impressive leadership and supervisory ability, and also good time management ability. It would be nice if the candidate has previous experience in hotel management or hospitality industry that can ensure their success in managing the establishment.
