Job Introduction

Here at Titan Travel, we’re fiercely passionate about providing customers with fantastic holidays. Right now, we’re looking for a commercially astute individual with excellent analytical skills, to join our Revenue Management team. Part of the Saga Group, we take our customers to some of the world’s most exciting destinations, from Kathmandu to New England and Buenos Aires to Alaska, where travellers have access to once in a lifetime experiences and can create memories they can treasure forever.

Maintaining a competitive edge in today’s fast moving environment is key to success. Companies need to have a real understanding of their business metrics and commercial, market and industry information and its impact on their customers. In short, a focus on commercial analysis is of the upmost importance. That’s where you come in.

You will deliver insight that will ensure our Revenue Management team deliver optimal revenue and gross margin performance. You’ll also play a key role in the annual and strategic five year plan process in collaboration with the Commercial Director & Head of Product and help set and measure against KPI targets for the broader business. Analysing data sets and performance data, producing revenue margin and passenger numbers, helping colleagues with data insight at the micro level and reviewing, tracking and analysing the market in terms of trends and competitor activity.

You will bring an analytical background and have a good understanding of commercial issues and business, pricing and yield processes. You will be able to digest detailed and complex information and providing detailed insights from large amounts of data. Monitoring trends and patterns in business performance comes naturally to you too, as does setting and following through on clear targets and objectives for teams. Persuasive and diplomatic, with sound judgement and great negotiating and presentation skills, you work well under pressure and instinctively know when and issue needs escalating.

And in return, you can look forward to all of the responsibility and involvement of an integral role, providing you with a rewarding and fast paced career with an excellent benefits package including life assurance, pension, high street and online discounts, and concessions for holidays and travel.
