The Grand Hotel Birmingham
The renovated Grand Hotel, housed in one of Birmingham’s most famous buildings located on the city’s prestigious Colmore Row, will once again open its doors to the public in the summer of 2020, following an extensive and details restoration to return the city centre landmark to its former glory.
Featuring 185 bedrooms and extraordinary suites, an outdoor terrace, glamorous new bars and a vibrant destination restaurant – as well as the magnificent centrepiece that is the Grosvenor Room, this property is set to capture the imagination of the city. The hotel will also have a number of state-of-the-art, inspirational rooms and space for meetings and events of all sizes.
What is the main purpose of the role?
Responsible for the marketing suite facility, you will effectively manage all initial enquiries and conduct engaging and informative show rounds with clients. You will competently ensure that clients are well informed and kept warm throughout the coming months before the hotel opening, optimising business opportunities.
Hard hat tours will commence in 2020; you’ll lead on the scheduling of these and generally support the pre-opening sales process as proactively as possible. It will be a small opening team initially, so you’ll also provide general support to the General Manager, HR Director and Sales Director.
You must be on point with your personal presentation and brand and have a keen eye for detail. You’ll have a bright, credible and engaging personal style that means you easily build trusting relationships with clients because, after all, you’ll be the face of The Grand hotel – the hottest hotel to open in the Birmingham market.
This is a unique opportunity to be part of the launch of this exclusive hotel and establishing The Grand Hotel as Birmingham’s most iconic venue. We also offer a competitive package and benefits that include:
- A competitive salary
- 28 days holiday each year, including bank holidays
- Access to our benefits portal, including discounts on some travel, leisure, health and retail
- Discounted accommodation with competitive colleague rates at our other hotels
- Long service awards
- Excellent training and development opportunities
