Commercial Manager Short Breaks
Merlin Entertainments Group
Salary: Competitive
Job location: Chessington, Surrey, UK
We are Merlin Entertainments… The name behind world famous attractions including LEGOLAND, SEA LIFE, Alton Towers Resort and Thorpe Park. Be a part of the Merlin magic by joining the Merlin Corporate team. We hire and empower smart people who love what they do. Now’s your chance to join us!

Merlin Entertainments plc is committed to developing destination resorts all over the world, where 50% of the guests who come to visit our parks will stay overnight, either in beautiful themed accommodation on park, or in “partner” accommodation close by.

In the UK, we work closely with a 3rd party vendor to deliver most of the onsite and offsite sales to our attractions. We are now looking for a Commercial Manager (Short Breaks) to manage this relationship effectively, ensuring that our attractions receive the right support to deliver on their short breaks targets. This role is based at our Merlin Business Support office in Chessington, Surrey.

As the main point of contact between our vendor and attractions, you will agree long-term and tactical marketing plans and ensure short breaks performance is measured against pre-agreed budgets and KPIs. You will track performance on a weekly basis, highlighting areas of concern and generally providing subject matter expertise on ecommerce booking platform development, as well as leveraging best practice from other Merlin attractions worldwide.

We are looking for the following skills and experience…
* You will be an experienced and commercial B2C sales professional, ideally with a background in the tourism sector.
* You must be numbers driven and performance oriented with good analytical skills.
* Excellent communication and presentation skills are key and experience in teaching specialist knowledge to a wide and distributed audience would be beneficial.
* You should be able to demonstrate a good understanding of consumer psychology coupled with good marketing and media knowledge.
* You must have a high level of commercial acumen and confidence dealing with all levels of management.
* In addition, you will need to be flexible and willing to visit our attraction teams across the UK.

The Benefits…
We’re growing fast and alongside a fun and friendly environment, we offer a fabulous package and amazing prospects – ideal if you’re already fantastic and can quickly become even better (our magic can help here). Benefits include Pension, Life Assurance, discretionary company bonus, 25 days’ holiday and, of course, a Merlin Magic Pass which gives you and your friends and family free admission to all of our attractions worldwide, as well as 25% discount in our retail shops and restaurants and 40% discount on LEGO.
