The Fabulous Role
This is a brand new position with this great cruise line company. With their fleet of ships, they have decided to introduce a revenue generating function on-board which will be managing all areas which have the opportunity of enhancing the guest spend whilst cruising. These areas include Spa, Retail, Shorex, Bar, Photography, Future Cruise Sales and more. This position will have all of these departmental leaders reporting directly to you. Focus will be at finding ways to work with your team to further increase the ‘spend per head’ of the sailing passengers through ‘soft’ approaches and not a ‘hard-sell’ directive. Working 7 days a week for a 4 month contract, your energy will be fabulous and able to motivate, lead and guide managers to come up with new and inventive ways to improve their bottom line sales.
The On-board Marketing Manager role aims to maximise sales and profitability through on-going analysis and assessment of our cruise products. Working with all of the on-board concessions and revenue generating outlets, you will be motivating, creating, driving and supporting additional revenue spend from the guests on-board.
You The Incredible Professional:
You will currently or very recently have worked in a similar role of ‘On-board Marketing Manager’ or ‘Marketing and Revenue Manager’ preferably at sea. Maybe you were working as a Hotel Director (or another role on-board?) and had the same genre of ‘reports’ in your team. If you have not worked at sea, then not to worry, you will most likely come from a strong and large hotel function with rooms of over 200+.
Your CV will show very clearly your success of revenue generation and enhancement of SPH / PPD in the position. It will evidence budgets you were set and achievements to identify to ‘me’ that you had total control of the revenue generating area. This role does not ‘touch’ such concepts as ARR or REVPAR, so we would be looking for other ways in which you have been developing the company bottom line to be shown in your CV.
This is a brand new opportunity for a strong individual to show how their experience, professional and personal skills and really develop revenue within a fabulous business. You have the chance to really shine and get on a platform to make a fabulous name for yourself. This is certainly a challenging position which could encounter resistance to change…but as we all know…’Change’ is good and it’s all about how you manage ‘change’ which makes it succeed for the better. You will be able to create and nurture an on-board revenue culture, ensuring strategies, processes and systems are consistently adopted.
