Responsible for handling enquiries both in the US and internationally, the team works hard to support our clients in the sourcing of the right venues to make their meetings and events extra special. It could be an intimate VIP dinner or a global training event, whatever the need – you will have the knowledge and the relationships of the best hotels, meeting rooms and quirky spaces to provide the right solutions for every occasion at the right price.

Our clients are large corporations who expect the very best – so you must be highly customer focused, well presented and articulate. Cool, calm and collected you will be able to build rapport with people at all levels and motivate the team to deliver solutions to challenging requests in a fast paced environment. You are someone who knows what it takes to go above and beyond clients expectations and instill that pride in the team. You understand that one size does not fit all!

While handling client inquiries, you will be comfortable keeping up to date with processes and procedures against a key set of KPI’s and maintaining outstanding standards of client service.

Highly organized, you are comfortable managing multiple tasks without compromising on quality and it goes without saying that your spelling and grammar are exemplary.

You will demonstrate excellent communication and networking skills, and the ability to successfully manage stakeholder relationships at all levels.

Key responsibilities include:
